Urban Monk

by Dimple Sharma

Haunting and deeply reflective, the music of Dimple Sharma is a fusion of adult contemporary, pop, and world music. Tabla, sitar, strings and flute meld beautifully with guitar, live drums, bass, and synth to create a sound that is decidedly Western, but that hints of Dimple's East Indian origins. Dimple's rich vocals accentuate the mix, giving her unique lyrics their own contemplative space.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Urban Monk, the debut album from Canada's Dimple Sharma, fuses the sounds of Indian Classical music with Western pop instrumentation to create a style that is uniquely both modern and traditional. Lyrically, the album takes the listener on a journey through the esoteric traditions, drawing from ancient Hindu, Sufi, Christian, and Hermetic texts, in a manner that makes these writings accessible and current. Songs such as "Seed Must Die And Break", "Purest Gold" and "Shine On" utilize the magic of the sitar and tabla, while tracks such as "Stone Guest" and "Moving Across The Waters" bring cello and live drums into the mix. Overall, the album succeeds in its proclaimed goal of providing "music to stir the soul."
