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 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."

Miten
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. By 1990, when he and Deva met, he was leading the music for thousands of people attending the evening meditations at the ashram in India, and eventually invited Deva to join. Later they began offering voice workshops and concerts in Europe. The Essence soon topped New Age and Alternative music charts worldwide, and Deva and Miten became planetary gypsies, bringing the ancient healing power of mantra into the 21st century. Their concerts and workshops are more than music – they are invitations to share in a deep moment of meditation.
