Janin Devi’s CD “Breathe” invites you into the sound world of an artist with a preference for sensory intimacy and pulsating silence:
Her work “Breathe”, a cooperation with the Berlin musician Benjamin Kreisel, is above all one thing: essential. And what happens when the spiritual clarity and emotional devotion of the Kirtan tradition meets the power and passion of American production aesthetics?
Acoustic guitars, sometimes free-standing, sometimes in warm and wide clusters, and singing, sometimes in simple pervasive simplicity, then again in fascinating choral size, result in an unmistakable sound aesthetic.
