    A favorite of yoga studios across the country, EMBRACE has created a stir with its haunting, ethereal music and the beautiful voice of vocalist Deva Premal. Comparisons to Enya and other hypnotic vocalists abound, but dedicated listeners will hear something much deeper than moody pop in Premal?s chants and mantras. ?Om Tare? is a traditional, ancient mantra offered to the goddess of infinite compassion. Its arresting groove seems genuine and reverent, not manipulated by modern studio controls. That?s not to say that EMBRACE doesn?t feature top production skills. Produced by Premal?s long-time partner Miten and world-music veteran Kit Walker, each track is polished, employing just enough studio wizardry to sound contemporary without tipping into New Age sentimentality. Unlike other chant CDs, Premal sounds relaxed, joyous, and open, using varied rhythms and loose phrasing. Such pleasurable listening shouldn?t be reserved only for the yoga mat?EMBRACE is a perfectly soothing and restorative listening experience.
