Mantras are passwords that transform the mundane into the sacred says Deva Premal. Password represents a shift in direction for Deva and Miten, with the introduction of Danish producer RajRishi, who brought the cream of Copenhagen's jazz players into the mix. The result is a substantial, musically refined album with sublime arrangements of ancient mantras, complementing Deva's soulful vocals. The album also features Manose, the ever-present bansuri maestro from Nepal. Password takes mantras beyond the ashrams of India and makes them accessible for anyone new to meditation or chanting, while offering a fresh sound for practiced individuals.

German-born Deva Premal is a classically trained musician and gifted singer who grew up in an atmosphere of mantras and eastern spirituality. She has been called both 'the queen of mantra' and the 'high chanteuse of chant'. Miten, originally from Britain, began as a singer-songwriter-guitarist in the 70s opening for such groups as Fleetwood Mac and Ry Cooder. He then discovered the power of meditation and left the world of rock 'n' roll behind. The two met at an ashram in India in 1990.
With her face gracing magazine covers, such as Natural Beauty & Health and New Age Voice, and one of her signature pieces, The Gayatri Mantra, being performed by Cher on tour, Deva Premal's star, along with Miten's, is on the rise. Their music, once found only in yoga studios, meditation centres and spiritual festivals, is now featured in record stores around the world and listed on Amazon.com's New Age Top 10.
