“I am always mesmerized by Kamini’s music. She is a custodian of a long lineage of Indian Classical Music, more specifically devotional music. It’s a blessing that she is keeping the traditions alive and passing on the gift of music to us in these modern times. She has very masterfully created so many songs/chants for us to connect with the divine. Her artistic abilities transcend the devotional music genre; she is truly a world musician. I high recommend her music to relax and go deeper into our conversations with spirit.”
