GANANAM TVA (Protection)
"The GANANAM TVA mantra held me through some of the toughest times in my life. This sacred mantra is believed to protect the orator and the listener. It is considered fortunate to recite this before embarking on any new journey or endeavor asking for protection and strength. I can attest to the power of this myself and in these very challenging times I wanted to offer the world what has helped me survive. It is a lifeline and I felt it was my duty to share it".
Radhika Vekaria is no stranger to capturing purpose & a higher calling within her music - her namesake "Radha" is the Vedic goddess of love and devotion; two concepts that are synonymous with Vekaria's pursuit of the arts. A classically trained musician who has performed in an impressive number of situations; from the lead in multi-faceted stage production INDIA INDIA to a member of bands fronted by luminaries like Prince, Vekaria's song GANANAM TVA (Protection) is an offering to those in need in these current times.
Falling stylistically somewhere between world music, textural soundscape and a collection of mantras, Gananam Tva Mantra (Protection) is one of the oldest pieces recited from the Rig Veda 1.2. It is believed that reciting this mantra affords protection and blessings for any mantras and actions taken after.
Los Angeles based producer George Landress (No Doubt, Dionne Warwick) preserves the sonic authenticity of traditional Indian instruments (harmonium, tanpura, etc) while taking a modern approach to production, creating an experience for the listener that is as healing & unifying as it is deeply musical.
