Priya Deepika Raising funds through Crowdfunding Campaign For Debut Album and Tour
New Delhi, IN—June 30, 2017
The foundation of my practice falls within the discipline of Naada Yoga or Sound Yoga. This lineage traces back thousands of years and into the mystical arts of the Yogic, Sufi, Buddhist, Bon-Pa and other eastern mystic traditions.- Priya Deepika
Priya Deepika opens up a new form of musical experience with the tour around her debut album, Hear in My Heart. Priya is an accomplished sound healer, musical activist, and a powerful voice in the emerging movement of conscious artists. Her sound is steeped in contemporary visions of Indian and other non-Western modalities. The album was composed and produced by Jonathan Hakakian of Hear Color Music, who’s worked on multiple Grammy-winning records, including collaborations with renowned artist Stanley Clarke.
Before developing her sound healing practice, Priya Deepika was an immigration attorney with a focus on human rights. That spirit of advocacy is present in a tour structured to amplify the voices of the disempowered and break through the restraints of traditional performance. The Hear in My Heart Tour includes shows at four iterations of the yoga and wellness-focused Wanderlust Festival, retreats in Bali and Orcas Island in Washington state, as well as intimate shows on both the East and West Coast.
The new record is an exploration of consciousness and awareness. Priya’s own influences incorporate Indian raga tradition and her own training as a Yoga of the Voice facilitator. “The foundation of my practice falls within the discipline of Naada Yoga or Sound Yoga,” says Priya. “This lineages traces back thousands of years into the roots of Tantra and the mystical arts of the Yogic, Sufi, Buddhist, Bon-Pa and other eastern mystic traditions.”
Set to lush instrumentation, her infectious lyrics develop into mantras in the hearts and minds of listeners. The album is accompanied by a full written curriculum that uses the songs of Hear in My Heart as a framework to dive deeper into personal transformation, to offer relief for high-stress professionals and trauma relief for victims of violence and abuse. That curriculum, called 5 Silas of Sound explores the essential principles of vocal sound healing: intention, breath, energy, melody, and mantra.
Priya Deepika is offering innovative ways to engage with her musical practice through a crowdfunding campaign running through July 2017 on the Launchpad by ArtistShare® platform. In addition to pre-purchasing the album, supporters can book private sound activation sessions where they learn how to engage with their own voice as a means of self-empowerment.
Other exclusive perks include a six-week virtual course, intensive retreats, and larger sessions attuned to groups of up to 25 people. For organizational teams, this groundbreaking curriculum opens up growth in key EQ skills: communication, wellness, workplace ethics and stress-management.
