Om Namah Shivaya

by Desert Rose

A soul journey from Ancient Aramaic to Devotional Sanskrit. These sacred sounds and chants are landscaped with classical orchestration and punctuated with the haunting sounds of the Ney and Egyptian fiddle, culminating in one of the holiest of chants, Om Nama Shivaya. The voice gives a unique expression of these sacred sounds and chants, breathing life into the music, evoking adoration and respect for our Creator. This album is a deep and uplifting passage through music into the infinite realm of the inner world.

Wow! What an amazing performance last night from Desert Rose from Cape Town South Africa. I have heard many hundreds of live bands over the years. These guys are totally amazing. A 6 piece African band to die for. They are performing in London on Saturday and then at Oxford University on Sunday. These guys are going to hit Europe with a storm.

I have been a musician and composer of my own songs for over 40 years and have attended thousands of live performances of every genre of music available to my ears. The music of Desert Rose is something of a new league to me. It reaches the innermost depths of your soul and you feel the raw emotion of what is going on in the music. I will only be happy when I have heard them perform in world class venues to massive crowds. The work they are doing to bring the world’s eclectic mix of people together through music is truly wonderful. I plan to do everything I can to ensure that next time they tour the UK they have a professional agent who paves the way for them to be a global phenomena. I would highly recommend anyone goes and hears their beautiful sounds.

Love and light

It is your contribution of music, and in particular sacred music that brings attention to our core values, our higher ethical standards and the intangible sense of inspiration and oneness that we have so valued at COPs 19 and 20. You manage to bring this universal message in an inspiring manner to diverse peoples across the world, stitching in local musical traditions and reaching out across humanity to make us feel that we are indeed one human family.

“The aesthetic combination of invocations with sounds engineered by Yusuf and Lynne are not only beautiful and pleasing to the ear but also helps the listener to be in awe of the majesty of the Creator or Al-Jamal (Beauty). Listening to Desert Rose is not only entertaining but is also a spiritual exercise that develops in us the capacity to discover love, peace and tranquility.”

It would not be an exaggeration to say that I was transfixed by the sounds and rhythms of the music. I found it quite magical the way the sounds of Islam merged with the sounds of Africa and Muslim and Jewish lyrics were woven together in at least one of the songs.

The evening gave me a new insight into the meaning of diversity and it was a truly spiritual experience. I felt a rare and inexplicable calm by the end of the evening and it came on slowly and lingered. I lived in the Middle East for several years and am familiar with the sounds of the muezzin. Listening to Islamic chanting is not what I grew up with but I think it was the compositions and the context of the music that made it such an enduring and moving encounter.

Desert Rose are certainly a group of talented individuals, but what sets them apart is the fusion they bring across colours, cultures and religions. The fusion is brought together in style, grace and harmony to provide uplifting entertainment.

Some say that words are food for the mind and music food for the soul. This would certainly be true for the music of Desert Rose. It is food for a tired body, for the lethargic mind and the battered will. It is difficult to put to words the plethora of feelings one gets when hearing this meditative music. When Desert Rose performed at the Institute for Advance Islamic Studies, IAIS Auditorium, we heard it with silence and the lights dimmed, and many hearts were filled with love and eyes filled with tears. With the main theme of the music of Desert Rose, that being God and His beloved ones, one cannot but be strengthened with the love for the Almighty, and reminded of times lost when the prophets walked the earth. And I cannot help but wonder that if we could be reminded of the beauty that surrounds us all the time, there will be no time for war and no space for hatred to take root on Earth. Desert Rose certainly reminds of the times of past, of what could have been, and what should be.

Comment on Desert Rose concert at Institute for Advanced Islamic Studies, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
"Desert Rose’s music and singing never fails to open my heart every time I hear it - and resonates in my whole being. I never tire of playing it.
What a fabulous combination of performers - African singing, dance and drumming that is deeply moving - and a true representation and message of hope from a true Rainbow Nation -"

I was taken by surprise with the talent on show and how cleverly they wove Sufi traditional songs with African rhythms and visa versa. All music arrangements and most of the compositions are credited to Lynne Holmes on keyboard, but the outstanding singing from Yusuf Ganief and Nceba Gongxeka was something special. Complimenting this were Sisonke Godlo on African percussion, Farah Jawitz on Clarinet and Lynne Holmes’ daughter, Michaela on vocals. She is a talented singer in her own right with an interesting future ahead of her. Nceba Gongxeka also played a number of instruments some of which I’d not seen before, e.g. Mbira, African Mouth Bow, African Harp and Shakers. He also showed off some great dancing moves when he stepped off the stage and went into a short set of well known South African songs.

This group carry a wonderful spirit with them from their Sufi teachings and possess a sound that is indeed unique, exciting and definitely uplifting. The combination of the five musicians on show here worked and they presented a marvellous show, feedback from those attending has been nothing but complementary. Hopefully they will swing by London again on another occasion and when they do, we’ll be happy to host them again.
