Dasi: Prayers by Women by Karnamrita is an offering of devotional prayers by the female saints of India. Filled with haunting harmonies, Karnamrita's soulful, velvety voice blends with mandolins, violins, sarods, sitars, pianos, harmonium, pakawaj, tablas, and mrdangam. Bringing together the heart of India and her own Western homeland, Karnamrita represents the new generation in music today.
Born and raised in American Ashrams, Karnamrita studied Sanskrit, Bhajans, Kirtan and classical Indian music before recording this CD. Her singing represents a natural blend of Western and Indian musicians and instruments, and her devotion can be felt in her singing, as she is able to convey the emotion of some of the poet saints of India she is honoring with this recording. Excellent work!
Also included with each CD is a beautifully designed 16 page booklet with each of the saints' personal story, with Sanskrit text and English translation.
