Maatri Sharanam (Take Refuge in the Mother), is a collection of traditional Sanskrit chants set to a range of beautiful melodies composed by Narayani. Mixing slow, gentle tempos with upbeat folk-style harmonies, and accompanied by tabla (Indian drums) and violin, Narayani’s powerful chanting is at once spiritually uplifting and profoundly meditative. And, whilst honouring the Indian tradition and philosophy of Kirtan (call and response chanting), her compositions have a western influence with wide appeal.
