New York: Deva Premal’s latest album ‘Deva’ has been nominated for the 62nd Annual Recording Academy Grammy Awards in the category Best New Age Album.
The announcement of the winners will be on January 26th via CBS. ‘Deva’ was launched on October 12, 2018.
Deva Premal’s parents chanted the Gayatri Mantra to her while she was still in the womb and it was her bedtime lullaby for years after. She grew up in Germany, becoming a sannyasin when she was 11, and later lived at the Osho Ashram in Pune. There she met Miten, who was organizing music for evening discourse. They became partners in love and music and have been offering concerts around the world ever since, plus releasing a string of best-selling albums, including the new release ‘Deva’.
Deva also had Anoushka Shankar joining her to play Sitar on her father Ravi Shankar’s composition “Prabhujee” in the album.
