OMKARA - THE SOUND OF DIVINE LOVE takes the science of music to the chakras – the seats of our energies – to inspire healing and balancing through beautifully arranged tones and elevated vibrations.

Review excerpt from Music and Media Focus
From India and California comes a groundbreaking new project called OMKARA. Just released is an album of chakra balancing music called OMKARA - The Sound of Divine Love. But OMKARA represents much more than just a musical recording. It is also an ongoing research project that works with sound in conjunction with medical facilities in India that deals with conditions such as cancer, cerebral palsy, autism, epilepsy, mental retardation, pain relief, depression, and more. However, music and sound can also affect the energy systems of the body beyond the physical.

Although many people from different countries are involved on various levels with this project, the director and visionary behind the endeavor is Rupam Sarmah. Originally from Assam, India, Rupam currently lives in California and is an engineer, film director, award-winning singer-songwriter, and producer who spent years researching ancient music and science, and the relationship of the body and mind. The album, recorded in both India and California, represents collaborations with top international artists, featuring GRAMMY winners Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, Laura Sullivan, Rocio Marron, and others. The CD was mixed and mastered by 4-time GRAMMY winner Brian Vibberts who has worked with Michael Jackson, Aerosmith, Eric Clapton, and Elton John. With eight tracks and more than 105 minutes of music, the recording combines classical Indian ragas, Western music, and World music with deliberately crafted frequencies. Instrumentation includes piano, keyboards, viola, tabla, percussion, acoustic guitar, saxophone, flute, sarengi, dotara, tamboura, and vocals.

Not surprisingly, the music in general has a strong Indian influence, with Western and World music instruments tastefully woven into the mix. While some chakra albums tend to be very meditative throughout, the music here blends meditative elements with earthy rhythms, some of which are quite upbeat and energizing. Each chakra reflects it’s own distinctive sound. The music is incredibly deep and detailed. The level of musicianship is astounding – absolutely world class. The music on the album is extremely well recorded and produced, which adds to the dimensionality of the listening experience.

From MainlyPiano
"Omkara: The Sound of Divine Love" by Rupam Sarmah is an extraordinary project both musically and therapeutically. Collaborating with a very impressive group of musicians from India and all over the world, some of them Grammy Award winners, Sarmah has created a work of staggering proportions. Omkara means “Sound of God.” Based on years of research, the music of "Omkara" demonstrates the positive connection between music, fundamental science, the creative frequencies of the universe and chakra energy. (The seven chakras are the energy centers in our bodies that balance the physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual aspects of being.) The eight tracks, ranging from about 5 1/2 minutes to almost 24 minutes, combine classical Indian melodies with ragas, western musical styles, new age and world music. The instrumentation is as varied as the musicians which makes for a unique listening experience.

Each of the first seven tracks represents one of the chakras. The eighth track represents a new energy point named “Heaven Bridge” and was composed with nine different creative frequencies to take listeners on a journey from birth to enlightenment. The research on Omkara Music Therapy is currently being conducted at disability institutes and with cancer patients. The deliberate use of musical sounds has been shown to have healing vibrations that can help to uplift and even help to stimulate brain signals of people with disabilities. Sound vibrations can be used effectively to relieve pain, depression, and even diseases. Amazing stuff!

Conceived and produced by Rupam Sarmah, the instrumental and vocal arrangements were created with the majestic sound of Mohan Veena (slide guitar) by Grammy winner Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt (Best World Music). Other musicians on this project include Padmashri Sumitra Guha, Grammy winner Laura Sullivan (Best New Age), Rocio Marron, Pandit Subhen Chatterjee, Pranjal Borah, Matthias Muller, Jonathan Kay, and many others. The album was mastered by four-time Grammy-winning engineer Brian Vibberts.

Rupam Sarmah is originally from Assam, India and currently lives in California. Over the past twenty years, he has written many songs in a variety languages, screenplays, and film scores that have earned international awards. As a film director, Sarmah earned the Best Documentary Award for the film In Search of God at the International Indian Film Festival. He is a Guinness World Record holder for composing and directing a symphony, A Musical Journey for World Peace, with 315 unique musical instruments from all over the world and over 500 performers onstage.
