The music for DEVI came through as I surrendered my fear, prayed for help and received a miracle during the Covid crisis. It is a lullaby to bring you solace during times of need.
The album has 4 incredibly beautiful long continuous tracks of ancient mantras to DEVI, the divine mother, created in my special unique formula. A tranquil blend of sacred chants, chilled beats and flowing melodies. The mantras drift over harmonium and tanpuri drones with deep hypnotic rhythms paced at 60bpm (resting heart rate). This tempo naturally soothes your mind and nervous system without effort, giving you profound rest and rejuvenation.
"Jo’s new album DEVI, touched something very deep within me and my world has been enriched by her beautiful songs." Jane, Retired Social Welfare Worker. Camden Haven.

The Story Of A Miracle
This album holds the miracle of love that came through during my time of need. Over the past few years of intense Covid times, I’ve been chanting and singing mantras to the Devi, the divine mother energy, to help me manage my emotions and mental health.I chose these mantras because the Devi energy is that of a protecting, nurturing, nourishing mother, holding me and keeping me safe.
These mantras helped me when the choice between getting Covid and having the jab was making me feel intensely fearful. After many months of stress and much deliberation, I chose to be vaccinated.On the day I was jabbed, I was in so much fear that I got down on my knees and prayed to my Gurudev for help.In anguish, I pleaded “I’m so frightened! Guruji, I’m soooo frightened, please help me. Please take it away, I can’t do this by myself!”.In a flood of tears I let go and bowed down and sobbed.Instantly the love flooded into me and the fear was lifted. I felt completely at peace and to this day the fear hasn’t returned. Truely a miracle!
On this day, a song came through me and I wrote the words and melody in an hour! My Child is about being held and protected in the love. This song is a reminder that the divine presence is alive, within and around us and holding us always, especially in our times of need.All you need do is stop, go within and sincerely ask for help.
I hope this album brings you solace and love during these difficult times as it has for me and wish for you peace, health, happiness and prosperity.
Calming, meditative, relaxing, and uplifting are some ways people describe Cafe Mantra Music because they have experienced the healing energy of sacred sound. You see, my music is not only beautiful, but scientifically created to harmonise your whole being … your mind, body and soul.
Music is a very important aspect of our lives. As babies, before we started speaking we started making musical sounds and singing. And those sounds are music because there is total harmony – within us and all around us.
Today, when the world is experiencing depression, fear, illness and uncertainty, we go out of harmony, out of tune. Mantra music awakens the vibrations of peace that is deeply embedded in each one of us, restoring us to the natural rhythm of life.
How Does Mantra Music Restore Harmony?
When we get stressed, depressed, tired, confused, ‘over it’, anxious, our natural rhythms change and we go out of tune. Our energies and mind become scattered and ‘all over the place’. Disconnected from our true nature which is always peaceful, happy, clear and wise.
Before we play a guitar, we have to tune it and that’s exactly what mantra music and meditation does for us - it tunes the seven layers of our existence to connect to the cosmic energy. The Body, Mind, Breath, Intellect, Memory, Ego and Self - when these ‘seven strings’ are tuned, music happens within and we experience harmony. That is health.
How Is Cafe Mantra Music Unique?
Cafe Mantra Music uses a special tempo of 60 beats per minute which is the resting heart rate. Just by listening, your subtle energies come into alignment with this natural rhythm. This tempo coupled with the healing vibrations of Sanskrit mantras, soothes your mind and nervous system without effort. All you need do is listen, let go and allow the music to take you on its healing journey. Easy!!!
Everything I create follows the ancient Vedic sciences of yoga, mantra and Ayurveda. As a qualified Ayurvedic practitioner, my knowledge and experience couples with a deep devotion to bring a richness, depth and spiritual energy to my music, teaching and cooking with the intention to help you nourish your entire being.
Blessings for your peace, health and happiness!
