Deva & Miten

The Deva & Miten duo has since 1990 sold more than 1 million CD’s worldwide with their inspiring blend of song, mantra and meditation

Deva & Miten

Deva met Miten in India in 1990 and soon they together began a journey into love and creativity that has taken their inspiring blend of song, mantra and meditation to a worldwide audience.
They have released a string of acclaimed CDs with sales of well over half a million, and their concerts and ecstatic chant workshops are met with rave reviews throughout Europe, Australia, Canada and the United States.

Their music transcends all the usual musical boundaries, with fans including rock icon Cher, who featured one of Deva’s most popular chants, the Gayatri Mantra on her Farewell Concert Tour; world renowned author and motivational coach Tony Robbins and even His Holiness The Dalai Lama who, after hearing Deva & Miten sing for a private audience, exclaimed, “Beautiful music, beautiful…!”
Best selling author Eckhart Tolle notes: “As you listen to the music of Deva and Miten, the sacred space that lies beyond the mind emerges naturally and effortlessly. Pure magic.”

Deva Premal

German-born Deva Premal is a classically trained musician who grew up singing mantras as bedtime songs. Her mother plays viola da gamba and her father was an artist and a devotee of the spiritual path, including Zen and Yoga. He taught himself Sanskrit and Deva notes that “When my mother was pregnant with me, their welcome was to sing the Gayatri Mantra throughout the pregnancy.

“As I grew up we continued to chant the Gayatri Mantra together regularly before sleep. I didn't really know what I was singing... and why. I just did it because I was told to. It wasn't until much later that I came to appreciate these precious times.”

As a teenager, she moved away from the confines of both her classical music training in voice, violin and piano, and the mantra practice, and began to explore on her own. At age 11, her search brought her to become a disciple of the enlightened mystic Osho, and later, she went to the ashram in India to begin studies in body work, including massage, shiatsu and cranio-sacral therapies.

It was in Osho’s ashram that she and Miten met. “Although I was 20 years old and he was 42, our hearts immediately connected,” she says. “I knew he was one of Osho's musicians, but that was about all I knew--apart from the fact that I felt good whenever we were together. We laughed a lot... and still do. He writes the most beautiful songs, some of which I knew from the ashram celebrations.”

Miten

Miten was born in London and grew up in the 60's. “At that time, England was alive with rock 'n' roll music and the sound of The Beatles,” he recalls. “Everywhere you went it was on the street. It was a time of innocence, a time when you could sense the possibility that life has no boundaries.”

He later went on to establish a successful career for himself in the 70's as a singer/songwriter, touring with such bands as Fleetwood Mac, Lou Reed and Ry Cooder. During this time he released two well-received albums, one produced by The Kinks, another by noted Los Angeles producer Bones Howe for Ariola Records. This period of his life was exciting, but left him unfulfilled: "“I had a couple of album deals, and moved into writing music for other people, then radio and tv work, then eventually found myself in my 30's asking questions — I was looking for something more substantial in my life than the usual diet of sex, drugs and rock and roll.“"

Miten left everything he had known before, even selling his guitars, and after discovering Osho when a friend gave him a book on Zen, dropped out of his career and into a life as a member of a meditation community. Here he found a new approach to music: “It was an amazing revelation. I wasn't prepared for the healing power of the music that was happening around Osho. This turned my head to what real sacred music was - even though it was western in style, it still had the most uplifting and spiritual nature, especially the 'Music Groups' and the Sufi dances. I was hooked on Sufi dance and never missed an opportunity to participate. All this music, along with a life of communal integration, deeper relating, and Osho's discourses and meditations, healed me from whatever wounds I'd been carrying around music, and life in general.”
