Realize your song, and then sing away!

Singing makes a difference because it is far away from the influence of needs. Singing frees you from the slavery of needs. Yours and the worlds. And true singing takes to closest to your most intimate more

Sing of the soul XXII – Khalil Gibran


Song Of The Soul XXII

In the depth of my soul there is 
A wordless song - a song that lives 
In the seed of my heart. 
It refuses to melt with ink on

I have spent my days in stringing and in unstringing my instrument.
The time has not come true, the words more

This is much much better what’s going on in india in the name of Bollywood.

Rishab Prasanna, Bansuri Virtuoso

WOW – It is great to hear some different and pleasant.

Dan, Progressive Rock Musician

The mixture of minor key melody scales within the overriding major chords is foreign to my ear (save for George Harrison) fascinating, haunting, and beautiful. Wonderful vocal quality and control as well. This is really nice stuff. – Tom

Tom Balek, Musician from Charlotte

Goosebumps! David and Shiv, stunning work in “Jo Mange”!

Dorinda, Listener from Texas

Love the arrangement/placement of your harmonies in “Chamkan Tare”. Beautifully done.

Slyder, Musician from Texas

Wow… “Chamkan Tare” is so beautiful. Shiv you have a gorgeous voice & Raul’s drums makes this song shimmer!

Caligulita Balmer, Musician from Guadeloupe

“Oooh this is too exquisite for words … I could listen to this all time … sheer bliss.

Annie, Singer/Songwriter on "Jo Mange"

Chamkan Tare made me cry in a nice way. Amazing

Dorothy Carroll, Ambient Musician, UK

Shiv’s voice reminds me of Jagjit Singh voice from the 1970’s.

Dattaprasad Ranade, Ghazal Singer

I really like the understated quality of Shiv’s vocal delivery. It remains Indian but with a little bit of something akin to alternative rock or indie folk.

Charlie Peacock, Grammy Winning Artist and Producer

Even when he speaks, it seems like he is singing.

Professor Atamjit Singh, Late UC Berkeley Professor

“Shiv’s voice is as sweet as his name.”

Ghulam Ali, Legendary Ghazal Singer

  • Dear Shiv,

    Just listened to the beautiful rendition…’jo maange’
    i thought it was simply beautiful…there was so much soul in the lilting melody… God bless!

    Music helps us to connect to the deepest recesses of our innermost being and as we travel we discover the hitherto unknown treasure…the sound of silence that lies somewhere hidden deep within us…it is there but somehow we are not aware of it…in that silence lies fullness and true love and peace that surpasses all forms of human understanding…

    Love & Peace,


    – Rahul E Nathaniel on Sep 09, 2014

  • Two years ago you told me meditation was contingent on our awareness of the stars. this seals it, thank you Master.

    – Louis Julio Someillan on Mar 15, 2014

  • Amazing video! Makes me feel like going outside to see the stars and become one with them.

    – Silkia Aponte on Mar 15, 2014

  • Never knew that a baby born “in our home” would come out to be so much gifted.

    The real ‘solitude’ will be awakened when there is nothing around. When ‘human’ singing stops, the chirping of birds, noise of air, the sight of running streams, a blade of grass will make the human body a ‘temple’ of soulfulness. Help of stairs is required to reach the roof. Once on the roof, stairs become redundant.

    Thanks and lots of love,

    – Rattan Arora on Mar 14, 2014
