"With the music and mantra on this CD we wanted to open up a lovely joyful space, with focus, with containment, yet with an energy that penetrates through. I like to put this CD on in the background as I go about my day... You might try it softly as you sleep. The words become a mantra that is pure positive affirmation - the music sinks in and the mood shifts and somehow things seem to start happening right." -Daram
Dharmji has just released Angels of Awakening, a gorgous new album
of sadhana chants, available at Spirit Voyage. Most mornings Dharm can be found
chanting and playing at the sacred sadhana at the Mother Ashram in Espanola New
Mexico. Dharmji's music combines the ancient sacred depth of India with the joy
and spiritual friendliness of his roots in the West.
Dharm was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, and grew up in Massachusetts. His mother,
who was an early USA yoga teacher, introduced him to yoga at eight years old. He
took the name Dharm after meting his spiritual teacher, Siri Singh Sahib Yogi Bhajan,
in 1982. Sacred music and the science of naad - the divine sound current - became
his joy and focus after he began studying with Yogi Bhajan.
He believes that sound is a teacher with the power to open us to divine consciousness
and true potential. In his workshops he explains how vibration allows intention
to permeate into manifestation, with the ability to bring health, harmony and happiness.
On a planetary level, the vibratory frequency of sound can heal as well. Yet in
all its depth and devotion, Dharmji’s music is joyous, and Dharmji himself
conveys the joy of spirit contagiously.
He was the piano player for Yogi Bhajan at his Estates. “Playing for Yogi
Bhajan was one of the greatest honors in my life. He asked me to be there every
night, while he entertained guests from around the world.” Dharm uses
many instruments - keyboard, guitar as well as voice - but also bass, Native American
flute, clarinet, sitar, recorder, tabla and hand percussion.
“My latest project is combining piano with Gurbani kirtan and mantra.
The piano is such an amazing instrument, but rarely used in kirtan. This is not
raag. This is sacred Gurbani with pure new age piano.” The Angels of Awakening
tour features piano with sitar, for an amazing combination that uplifts the spirit
with sheer joy and deep happiness.
