Liner Notes

  • In this recording we hear songs venerating Shakti, the divine feminine energy, the playful God Krishna; Murugan, the patron diety of the southern Indian state of Tamilnadu; Saraswathi goddess of music and learning; and Lord Shiva, the great ascetic. Bhakti yoga -the "yoking" (as the word "yoga" literally means)of a spiritual seeker of the divine through this devotional path -is what singer Aruna Sairam celebrates in this extraordinary album, which unites, poetry, language, and music from across centuries and from across India itself.
