Graced by ancient mantras and mult-level harmonies, LOVE IS SPACE glows with an inspiring, heart-centered passion. Deva Premal's voice, like silk, like liquid bliss, is accompanied by Jai Uttal, Miten and Kit Walker's amazing keyboard and rhythm tracks. LOVE IS SPACE, as the title suggests, is a journey into the spacious golden land of chant. This is amazingly sensual music that is ideal for yoga, meditation, healing work, and, not least of all, slow passionate dancing.
"Every major culture has used sound and music not only for enjoyment, but also for spiritual celebration, enlightenment and healing. The mantra tradition of India is the most sophisticated of all. Over all the centuries that mantras have been performed and used, I wonder if they have ever been produced more beautifully.
I have not met Deva Premal and her partner Miten, but having listened to their CDs over the last few years, I feel as if I know them. For they are far more than highly gifted musicians, everything that they produce is suffused with deep love and profound spiritual awareness.
You can most certainly listen to this extraordinary work for enjoyment, but if you let it in, it will soon have profound positive effects on you. When Deva Premal sings, you are listening not just to her physical voice, but to the subtle and causal dimensions of her being. And if you let them, your own subtle and causal bodies will respond.
This is much more than beautiful music: it can guide and carry you toward emotional and spiritual healing and awakening."

"How fortunate we are to share the joy and love that emanates from this beautiful recording. Deva Premal's voice tugs at your heart. Her devotional prayers for peace wash your soul in a warm bath of love. Reminiscent of the voices and style of both Kim Waters (Rasa) and Wah (of Wah!), the tonal quality of Premal's voice reaches deep within. Her rendition of "Om Mani Padme Hum" is so joyous you can't help but enthusiastically take part in her song. Later I found this tune still resonant in my mind. "Ide Were Were" is a gorgeous piece and moves through the room like a sensual dance. Deva Premal is joined on this recording by her partner Miten and other wonderful musicians including Jai Uttal. The vocal harmonies, unusual in mantra chanting, of Jai Uttal and Premal are an exquisite blend of talent. Especially sweet is the love story which embraces these endeavors. While individually travelling in India, Premal, a native of Germany, and Miten, from England, met and fell in love. Marrying their spiritual and musical quests, they now tour the world performing and giving workshops. Again, we are blessed to share in the culmination of their union and efforts. "Love is Space." Thank you, Deva Premal and Miten, for filling my space with your love."

"I wake up to this CD. I go to sleep to this CD. This CD is the most beautiful CD I have ever heard. I listen to this CD and I am drawn completely into the ecstatic experience that seems to exist between the musicians and God. Listening to this CD feels like looking into the eyes of the most wonderful person you could ever make love to and having everything melt away into oneness. This music is incredibly beautiful and spiritual, moving and peaceful. Of the dozens of things I have bought on amazon.com, this was the first thing I felt so moved by to write a review."
Awesome, quality, the real deal with respect to deep meditat

"LOVE IS SPACE is a gem. The whole CD sets a beautiful, spiritual tone that inspires. The chants are lovely and they are delivered from a deep space.
I find very few CDs in this genre that deliver on what the promise. If you are looking for great music to lift your soul for meditation or yoga, try this CD. You don't be disappointed. "
