ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Daughter of the Mountain is the first volume of The Mantra Project, a multi-CD collection of mantra-driven music we’ll be recording over the next few years. Daughter of the Mountain is one of many names for the goddess Parvati, beloved of Lord Shiva. Together, they represent the power of transformation, inner stillness, and supreme love. When Shiva drinks poison in order to save the world, Parvati takes him in her lap and sings him back to life. Her song is the force, the śakti, within mantra.

In the same way that yoga and meditation have exploded out of their counter-cultural beginnings, chanting is now breaking into the mainstream. We hope that by the end of the decade, mantra practice is as common as yoga classes and mindfulness meditation groups. And that the music of The Mantra Project, infused with the force of Parvati, brings healing and transformation to everyone it touches… and everyone they touch… multiplying in endless circles of luminosity, wisdom, and love.

Irresistible dance rhythms, spiritual depth
With its driving tabla rhythms, you might easily mistake this for an irresistible dance album! But in fact, it is the first in a series called the Mantra Project created by vocal artist, composer, and yoga teacher Suzin Green with her long-time collaborator Dan Johnson. This album is subtitled “Daughter of the Mountain,” which is the meaning of the name Parvati, goddess and wife of Siva, the ever-restless Cosmic Dancer. This title signals a collection of chants in the Siva/Sakti tradition, permeated with light and creative power, yet also promoting stillness and deeper consciousness. Vakratunda Mahakaya opens this rich cluster of traditional Sanskrit mantras, which are rendered with reverence, precision, and confident musicality, but also pulsate with a very modern infectious energy. In addition to his percussion artistry, Johnson’s vocals add depth and texture to the fabric of sound created by Suzin Green’s ecstatic aerial voice in this chant to Ganesha, known as the facilitator of beginnings and supporter of spiritual quests.
In Mangalam, Green’s sonorous deeper registers anchor this compelling litany of the elements of the universe and the layers of the human person--body, mind, and spirit. This track flows smoothly into the Gayatri, the quintessential mantra of Light, both the physical light in the world and the subtle inner light that leads us along our own path. Maha Mrityunjaya, a powerful mantra of spiritual freedom and enlightenment, continues the momentum until we come to rest in the Devi Shlokas, verses to the Divine Feminine, which help to gather the myriad energies stirred by the preceding chants to settle the listener into stillness, renewal, and peace. This album would be wonderfully energizing for a hatha yoga practice or to prepare for meditation, either individually or in a class setting. Or simply for a most memorable listening experience--you might get up and dance!

Absolutely Outstanding Album!
Suzin and Dan have put together another incredible album! The music, sacred mantras, and overall sound is gorgeous and profoundly healing. A powerful aid in meditation, and a deeply healing energy from these sacred mantras as they permeate into the spirit. Spectacular!

Gorgeous music, brilliant for yoga and movement
As a yoga teacher, I love playing Daughter of the Mountain in my classes. My students and I feel energized and joyful moving to it. This album is such a breath of fresh air in the genre. The complex layered sound, Suzin's nimble, ethereal vocals, and Daniel's driving and diverse beats, keeps it interesting, even addictive! Just like a fine wine pairs with a dish to enhance its flavor, this spectacular album of mantra music set to beats brings out the flavor of my yoga practice in a way that is truly out of this world! I can't wait until the next volume of the Mantra Project comes out!
