DEVAS – the divine deities in Hinduism, are associated with various aspects of the cosmos and integrated in the cycle of human life; birth, aging and dying. Composer and bassoonist Burak has created his new work, entirely based on the mythology and spirituality of the Indian supernatural Demigods; DEVAS. After his choreographic sound installation HERMES, Burak once again guides his audience through an astonishing world of ancient legends. DEVAS merges the authentic Indian sounds with world music, jazz, neoclassical and electronica genres.

All the tracks in the album are recorded and produced by Burak and Ensemble Musica Sequenza. The mixing is directed by Argentinian sound engineer Alejandro Mosso in Berlin. Star singer Natacha Atlas has a solo appearance on the song SHIVA. The ensemble is casted by voice, bassoon, sitar, strings, Indian percussions and Burak’s latest electronic sounds.
