ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ABOUT SIVANI MATA
Sivani Mata has fallen in love with the path of Bhakti Yoga (of which chanting is a key element). She organised the UK's first ever Bhakti Music Festival (in August 2011) and the Be Love: Bhakti Immersions which brought devotional musical practices from various traditions together as one, in the spirit of universal love and devotion. She leads Kirtan, Shakti Dance and Yoga Nidra in London & around the UK. Her practice has been influenced by many teachers and traditions, and she is highly grateful for the people who have inspired and supported her. Sivani Mata feels incredibly blessed to have found this divine practice and be able to share it with others.

ABOUT SURRENDER CD
This double-disc album is an offering of Kirtan; mantra music from the bhakti yoga tradition. Bhakti Yoga is relationship, a connection of pure love and compassion. It can manifest and be felt between lovers as they relate to each other, between parents and their children, between siblings and friends. It is present when you serve others selflessly and when you connect to Mother Earth and the land around us. It is the relationship we have with ourselves, an acceptance of who we are as we are. It is how we relate to life, its ups, its downs; it is our connection to all of creation and how we relate to the idea of divinity. Exploring these life relationships are not always easy, and many emotions arise on the journey. In my experience, the practice of Bhakti Yoga helps us to have courage and surrender to it all. I am grateful for the moments the surrender comes, and the grace that inspires it. Bhole Baba ki JAI!

All Kirtan are traditional mantras, melodies received by Sivani Mata directly from source except Durga Mantra (track 4) which is a traditional melody. All tracks recorded and mixed by Tabla Tom Simenauer (www.tablatom.com). Artwork designed by and front cover image and other doodles drawn by Sivani Mata.
