The Song of Breath
Co-produced with the masterful Ben Leinbach (Deva Premal, Jai Uttal), Yvette’s new concept album The Song Of Breath invites the listener deep into the heart of our most loyal and divine breath. This eternally bound 52 minute CD serenades one of the most popular and sung of Hindu prayers, The Hanuman Chalisa. Beginning with Invocation and Birth of Breath, Yvette’s lusciously hypnotic vocals soar beyond the mind to the energetic life force breathing within. With his authentic Indian esraj, the gifted Benjy Wertheimer sets a meditative zone. The vocal prowess of Girish breezes in as Breath of Life flavors with a cool, jazz feel and some modern grooves. Breath of Life peaks a vocal celebration of harmony as Yvette and Girish duet to the top of the Himalayas where Hanuman fortuitously returns the Lover to the Beloved. With flowing keyboard and love-infused viola, Yvette offers up the last trinity of the Chalisa in prayer. Breath of Transition respires a solo journey where a life’s memory of inhales are released and the final exhale is returned to its waiting Source.
* The Song of Breath includes an 8 page insert with Yvette’s reflections on the nature of Breath.
