ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In a departure from his trademark ambient sound, Grammy-winning artist Paul Avgerinos brings together yoga music all-stars Krishna Das, Donna De Lory, Jai Uttal and Wah!
This joyful, energetic and spiritual album will make you want to dance!

"Who said that spirituality needs to be heavy and serious? The songs on DEVOTION will help you to dance through your life in joyful surrender, and that is the essence of true spirituality." – Deepak Chopra

"It was a great pleasure to participate in the recording process on DEVOTION with Paul. 
It is a blessing to be of service in helping spread the Divine Name in this world." – Krishna Das

"Working on the DEVOTION project was a joy. I love when people of different traditions come together to share music! Divine Feminine is so important for this age we live in. Jai Ma!" – Wah!

"It is a pleasure to be part of this Album, alongside so many of my favorite devotional artists. I loved singing on Jai Jai Ma, singing the many names of the Divine Mother. Since I began recording Mantra music, I have had great experiences working with remixers who bring an electronic ambient feel to my music. I feel it is important to blend Mantra and electronic music together as it gets the Mantra's and message out to a new (wider) audience." – Donna De Lory

"My Guru told us again and again that if we repeat the name RAM the impossible will become possible. I took this to heart and singing these names has been my main practice for close to 50 years. I hope you can feel the presence and love of Sita and Ram in this track called Jaya Ram, and open your heart to their unlimited blessings." राम राम राम राम राम राम राम राम राम राम राम राम – Jai Uttal

Move, dance, do yoga, exercise, work, be joyful…all In DEVOTION.

I was a little skeptical about listening to Paul Avgerinos’ "Devotion" in the car since it features “yoga music all-stars” and I didn’t want to be lulled into too relaxed a state while cruising down Highway 101 at 55 mph. Was I ever surprised when the album turned out to be high-energy, can’t-sit-still rhythmic, and a whole lot of fun! This is GREAT music for playing at a high volume while behind the wheel (as well as a whole lot of other activities - or while doing nothing at all!)! Paul Avgerinos won the Grammy Award for Best New Age Album in 2015 and has won numerous other awards and nominations for his music, much of which is ambient. He has also released several collaborative albums, including this one, which is his 23rd release. It won’t surprise me a bit to see Devotion nominated for a whole slew of awards, but whether or not that happens, this music is upbeat, celebratory, joyful and life-affirming. Even if you have never attempted yoga or meditation, Avgerinos and company will have you on your feet and feeling good in no time!

Paul Avgerinos composed, produced and engineered the album, sang lead and background vocals, and played guitars, bass, keyboards, and drum and percussion programming. Guest artists include Aureliaslight, Krishna Das, Donna DeLory, Emma Kiara, Jai Uttal and Wah! This quote from Deepak Chopra sums up the album really well: “Who said that spirituality needs to be heavy and serious? The songs in Devotion will help you to dance through your life in joyful surrender, and that is the essence of true spirituality.”

The lyrics for most of the ten songs/chants/mantras are in Sanskrit, a language that dates back at least 3,500 years. From the album’s liner notes: “Part of the richness of this ancient Sanskrit language is that there are rarely fixed precise translations for each word. The multiple meanings and nuance allow for a much richer experience on the personal level.” The booklet that comes with the album has the lyrics with a basic translation of what each chant or mantra means.

I can’t really say that I have a favorite track on "Devotion" - all ten songs are infectious and easy to love. The strong rhythms and electronic instrumentation give the music more of a pop feeling than a new age one, but I’m all for breaking down genre stereotypes and composing “outside the box” to reach a broader audience and to make music a unifying element that brings us together rather than targeting a specific demographic. Thank you, Paul Avgerinos!
