ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Donna has one of the most beautiful and alluring voices that has ever been heard on the planet.”~Krishna Das

One of the foremost and much-loved artists in the burgeoning yoga music movement, Donna De Lory is world-renowned as a singer, songwriter, producer and musician. She is dedicated to consciously creating music with a positive message. Acclaimed as a background singer and dancer for Madonna during six international tours, De Lory has continued to delight and inspire worldwide audiences as a solo artist. Her music has been described as, "a highly danceable mixture of gorgeous singing, irresistible beats, and spiritual grace." Her genre-defying albums are deeply personal, yet carrying an uplifting, universal message, easily accessible to even casual listeners.

Donna De Lory's new album The Unchanging is one of the most deeply personal artistic statements in her deep catalog of mantra music classics. It resonates on a universal level, bathing the listener in chilled out electronic textures, world flavors, sonorous string arrangements, tender balladry and lyrics that touch on the heart's eternal truths. And, as always, Donna's sublime voice has the power to lift us all into realms of pure bliss.

Many of the tracks on The Unchanging are musical and lyrical meditations on the recent passing of the singer's father, renowned session pianist and producer Al De Lory. “I’m really honoring him with this album,” says Donna. “It’s about how my father’s death affected my whole spiritual path. When you go through that transition with someone who was one of the most important people in your life, it’s a blessing and deeply transformative experience.”

With a string of best-selling and much-loved albums including The Lover and The Beloved (2004), Sky is Open (2006), Sanctuary (2008) and Remixes (2010), Donna De Lory has become one of the reigning queens of world devotional music. Her rapturous performances at yoga and consciousness festivals like BhaktiFest, Omega and Lightning in a Bottle are like one big musical group hug. But before devoting her life to singing sacred mantras and lyrics of spiritual aspiration, Donna traveled the globe for 20 years as a backup vocalist and dancer for Madonna, and rocked international dance floors with her own pop music. The Unchanging is a joyous distillation of all that vast experience. De Lory’s musical perspective is as wide as the world itself.

The Unchanging boasts a stellar cast of A-list musical talent, including mixmaster Kevin Killen (U2, Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush, Elvis Costello), bassist Tony Levin (Gabriel, King Crimson, John Lennon) drummer Jerry Marotta (Gabriel, Costello, Paul McCartney) guitarist Jerry Leonard (David Bowie), drummer Dave Allen (Michelle Branch) and longtime De Lory collaborator, keyboardist, film composer and electronic music producer Mac Quayle. The lavish production also weaves in the mantra musicianship of bhakti stalwarts like tabla master Girish, bansuri flute virtuoso Manose and bassist Mark Gorman. With fearless vision and consummate mastery, Donna De Lory has appropriated the grand scope and all-inclusive universality of pop music and married it with the heartfelt purity and emotional honesty of devotional music.

Donna's previous CD 'Remixes' received this glowing review: "The light at the center of this swirling universe is the crystal clear heart-opening sound of Donna De Lory's exquisite voice, which draws listeners to the inner realms while the electronica grooves keep the head nodding and the body swaying. Her intention was clear: to create music that brings forth a feeling of oneness with all things, and takes us back to a place of innocent joy and freedom."

Donna is amazing
Donna has an amazing voice and write some of the most catchy and moving songs of our time.
Donna desires better than to have her music published on MP3 only. CD at least but even better would be DVDA. I will buy The Unchanging when it is on CD.
