Today we feature an incredible song from Prem Joshua, multi-instrumentalist and composer, a pioneer of world fusion music. Born in Germany, Joshua began learning the flute at a young age. As a teenager he performed in various rock, jazz and fusion bands as a flute and saxophone player, always searching for new ways of expanding his music.
A musical discontent, combined with his search for the spiritual, pulled him towards India where he became immensely interested in the culture and music found in the country. He traveled extensively throughout Greece, Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan. In each place he became deeply involved with the indigenous folk music he found there. He learned from and played with local musicians along the way.
Prem Joshua has released 14 albums to date and has played on several studio recordings. He has traveled the world many times and plays to an increasing number of music lovers, inspiring them with a musical message that reaches beyond the borders of tradition, politics, religion and belief. He is the number one selling world music artist in India.
The song “Dakini” is just over thirteen minutes long but every second of it is profoundly peaceful, inspiring, and soothing to the ears.
