“If only we could find acceptance, compassion, and love for each other regardless of religion, identity, differences, the world would be a better place. We each have a choice of what we choose to focus on and that can make a world of a difference… a different world. How much we give is not a function of how much we have, but how big and open our heart is.” ~Rupam Sarmah
OMKARA means Sound of God. OMKARA – THE SOUND OF DIVINE LOVE takes the science of music to the chakras – the seats of our energies – to inspire healing and balancing through beautifully arranged tones and elevated vibrations.
The album includes eight tracks, each representing one of the seven chakras (plus an eighth realm called Heaven Bridge). The chakras are the energy centers in our body that balance the physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual aspects of being. Each can be related and affected by frequencies and musical notes. The music meshes the genres of Classical, Ragas, Western music, and World music with deliberately crafted frequencies. In this unique project, Rupam collaborated with musicians and vocalists from India and around the world to produce musical vibrations that affect body and spirit.
