Instant Moksha - Mantras By Sarves Thiru


Instant Moksha - Mantras

Sarves Thiru has had an amazing last few years, and an incredible 2022, winning awards and sailing high in charts, today we mark another important notch in that calendar and life of the artist, with the arrival of her brand new and much waited debut album entitled Instant Moksha – Mantras, a release which is set to unleash a wave of approval from fans new, old and yet to be, across the globe.

The opening piece from the release is Victory: Vakratunda, a smooth and melodic mantra brimming with positive energy and good intent, the whole album is flowing with added ethnic multi-instrumentation, and within this opening track it works beautifully, on a track that was a single earlier on this year.

The next offering I actually felt quite emotional over, the opening was beautifully arranged and the artist herself performs one of the most sensitive mantras on Day and Night: Sri Ram which leads us perfectly into the following musical narrative entitled Shiva: Om Tryambakam.

The aforementioned track reminded me of my early days within this genre with artist like Deva Premal, here Sarves Thiru actually brings a lot of power and intensity into the arrangement, and this is enhanced wonderfully by the inspiring and energetic percussive efforts on the piece.

I feel, that what is creating this wealth of musical love for the vocalist, is her ability to be original as well as continuing on her musical traditions, Guru's Greatness: Guru Brahma is a fine example of that aforementioned statement, with a blend of east meets west, with elements of Jazz and Latin beats, symbiotically mixed with the eastern ethics that run so beautifully through this album, this would be one of my personal favourites from the release.

Bhakti: Om Namo Narayanaya manifests a gentle but reflective tone into the proceedings, the acoustic guitar within this track was utterly perfect, and adding a vibrational percussion into the arrangement elevated Sarves vocals to a level that was utterly sublime, and most desirable to literally bathe within.

We have two final pieces on the album, firstly another track that was offered up as single earlier on this year, with the uplifting and bright resonance of the creation called Harmony: Lokah Samastah, and the concluding track Transcend: Asatoma, this was a superb final master piece, and in part reminded me a little of the band Bliss back in the early part of this century.

One must applaud the London based Malaysian artist Sarves Thiru, ever since she creaked open the door to the world of music she has been a complete success, she has a voice that is tender, graceful, yet incredibly warming, and I can see no reason at all why Instant Moksha – Mantras, should not power up the charts, and allow a much delicate and fearful world to enjoy her music and be at peace with her blissful global fusion of an album, this one comes very highly recommended with ease.
