Biography

UMA MOHAN – Born in Chennai on 31st October 1966, into a family of musicians, was trained from her childhood by her mother and Guru Smt.P.L.Saraswathy Ram in classical carnatic music. She learned several compositions of her ancestor Mahathma Sri Neelakanta Sivan –an enlightened Saint from Padmanabhapuram- Kerala.

After acquiring her masters in commerce, she entered into matrimony and later took up several religious and spiritual practices. Even as a child, she was interested in philosophy and read books of Vivekananda and J. Krishnamoorthy. Books of Zen Buddhism, the Bible and the Bagavad Gita were her all time favourites.

Initially, after having had several experiential revelations, she began writing songs in Tamil, which she released. Then, she did a series of Devotional albums with songs from all languages including Hindi, Kannada, Telugu, and foreign languages like Singhalese and English. She also cut a solo CD in English-for Divine healing, called “Ocean Of Love” which was well received in Russia, Sweden, and India. At this point, her interest in the Vedas took over and she started coaching a group of youths to chant the Vedas, which on popular demand materialized as the Sacred Chants Series of 3 volumes released by Kosmic Music. Two other albums of “Moolamantra” for meditation were also released. Pragnya has released “Amruthavarsha” a series in which she has sung in 4 volumes two of which are her solo albums. Times music has released “Divine Chants of Ganesh”, “Sounds of Harmony”, “Shanthi Mantras”, and “Divine chants of Mahalakshmi” and many more solo albums by her.

    I was in a little town in Northern India a couple of weeks ago, when I heard "Shiva tandava stotram" being played at high bass in a shop. It was one of those rare moments where I felt the hair on my arms stand on end, and I got "musical delight shivers." I had to snap up the CD (295 rupees/$5!) The one song was totally worth it. I've been loving her stuff.
