The acclaimed Canadian devotional chant artist Brenda McMorrow is beloved for her unique and warmly embracing style of mantra music. She blends elements of acoustic folk and world rhythms with a sweetly introspective singer-songwriter’s sensibility as she crafts tuneful, uplifting interpretations of traditional Sanskrit mantras with her own inspiring lyrics and excerpts of poems by the Sufi mystic Rumi. Ram Dass said “Brenda McMorrow has a gift” -- and her gift of deeply spiritual but very accessible music has touched the hearts of listeners worldwide.
On this fourth album, she draws upon her extensive travels as an in-
demand touring artist to weave fresh new flavors into her distinctive sound; time spent in Spain, Peru and Mexico inspired the introduction of Spanish lyrics in some songs, while yearly visits to India have helped nurture the place of clarity and transformative growth in which her songs take root.
