This year has brought so many surprises for all of us, and uncertainty has reigned high over our minds. But like a silent storm of beauty and novelty, brewing to strike light in the drooping hearts, Ananta Govinda comes with his new album–Mirror of Desire. Part of much a bigger plan, this album is a sweet invitation to a mystical world, which will have a novel and also a multimedia production also.

I often get to listen to the music of different genres and tastes but to bring so many elements, styles, and concepts in just around forty minutes of play, you need to have a divine calling and divine backing too. You will agree to me if you look at the names of musicians who played in this album and the virtuosity they brought in.

Ananta’s vocals and keyboards anchor the album which also features a stellar cast of guest performers on a dizzying assortment of instruments as well as appearances from guest vocalists on selected tracks. The album is a cornucopia of musical influences yet cohesive at the core, a vision of music as a bridge across cultures and boundaries.

There’s really only one word to describe the marvelously reflective musical wonders that spiritual musician Ananta creates for you on this upcoming album – AMAZING!
