On today's episode of Mixed Race Radio we welcome Mantra-Pop Star, Robin Renee. Robin is the visionary behind Menage a Music and has found a creative way to fuse her writer/songwriter lyricism and contemporary East-meets-West spirituality.Her newest album, "This." features call-and-response chanting, soulful voices, and a rich soundscape of organic instrumentation blended seamlessly with light, heart-opening electronic ambience. The bright "Keshava" and upbeat "Kali Ma Potluck Singalong" are favorites of Robin’s live kirtan chant events. Here, they join the traditional melody "Jaya Jaya Shiva Shambho," the beautifully simple "Blessed Be, Namaste," and three more tracks of energy-moving sound. While Live Devotion (2007), her first recording dedicated wholly to sacred chant, was borne mainly of one inspired recording session, the spark of inspiration for This. matured over time with the help of engineer, composer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Jack Walker (heard on John Edward Cross Country) in his Bad Dog Digital studio. Berklee College of Music grad and longtime Hawaii ashram resident Karttikeya handled drums and percussion, while Isitri Om Kati Brennan and Angela Cavallaro brought sound and spirit alive with dynamic backing and response vocals. The result is a joyful, flowing recording for meditation, movement, deep listening, and singing along. Robin Renée’s live performances run the gamut from rock to chant, all-acoustic to full-sounded, and may flow seamlessly in between. She has shared the stage with some of the West’s best-loved kirtan singers including Krishna Das, Dave Stringer, and Girish. Also a poet, artist, and writer, Robin’s work has appeared in Curve Magazine, Songwriter’s Market, PanGaia, Big Hammer #12,That Takes Ovaries – Bold Females and their Brazen Acts (Random House), and many other publications.
