SUDHA
 
For over a decade Sudha has offered sacred chants, devotional mantras and songs from a variety of traditions, taking her audiences on an exquisite journey through sound, into the heart of stillness and prayer. She weaves influences from the East, from the Sufi, Tibetan and Indian traditions as well as chants from Africa, Hawaií, Native America and beyond, inviting listeners to join her in song, prayer and silence.

Born in Denmark, Sudha’s background in dance, drama and music reaches back to her childhood, where she also developed an early interest in self- discovery and the mysteries of our seen and unseen world. Music and dance then became the vehicle through which she expressed her journey of discovery and her passion for creating atmospheres of healing and universal love. One of Sudha's main inspirations is the Indian mystic Osho, and it was as a part of his worldwide family that she started using music as a form of meditation.
Since 2002, she has been performing internationally through Europe, Australia, USA, Japan and India. Sudha also spent six years performing and recording with Dutch producer Maneesh de Moor.

“Sudha’s voice, the innocent sound of pure love...will soothe your soul and caress your spirit”
- Deva Premal   
In 2006 during a deep process at the Oneness University near Chennai, India, Sudha experienced a profound sense of Oneness and found a path via which she could access the divine source of energy. This energy is now transmitted through her singing and is available to all who choose to join Sudha through listening to her live in concert or via her CD’s.
Sudha has so far released three albums: Planet Love ( 2004) – a collection of traditional chants and songs from Hawaií, Native America and the Sufi tradition. Sharanam (2007) – an album of deeply meditative and devotional mantras in Sanskrit, best known for the track Om Bhagavan which has played in many yoga classes and alternative radio stations around the world.
In Her Name (2014), which is a collection of mantras and chants honouring the Divine Feminine. On this album she worked with producer, composer and flute/sax player Praful, known for his beautiful compositions for Deva Premal.

REVIEWS and LISTENERS COMMENTS


In Her Name

Presenting her long-awaited third album for Malimba Records, Sudha continues to radiate light and love with a collection of seven extended length Buddhist and Hindu chants that express devotion to the Divine Feminine. Gentle, feather-light vocals are Sudha's calling card, and this album will uplift you with her ethereal chanting that floats through each of these serene chants. The musical arrangements bear a subtlety that allows Sudha's vocals to be a central presence. She is adorned with shimmering santoor harmonies, flute, violin, sax and an underlying layer of sitar drones. Tabla beats scamper throughout, giving the music a mellow rhythm that keeps the pace breezy and enjoyable. It's hard not to like the sweet music on display here, showing a quiet sense of spirituality and a sense of reverence for the feminine aspects of God, including Kuan Yin and Saraswati. - Dan Cowan, MD In Review

A lovely recording lovingly presented. It's gorgeous in its simplicity. Absent arbitrary instrumental noodlings and extraneous vocalizing, Sharanam shines with integrity and understated power.
