Review of UNSEEN GRACE by Amber Terrell:
If you are familiar with Kirtana’s music, don’t be surprised if you are surprised by this new album. It is deeper and wider and decidedly rawer than her previous offerings, and as always, she provides us with a window into her soul, accompanied by an invitation into a journey that few have the nerve to take, and even fewer have the creative skill to sing about with such clarity. A little bit singer-songwriter and a little bit Indian, and a whole lot distinctive Kirtana, you have to listen to these pieces several times before you get the full impact of the multidimensionality that is layered within each one. The depth of the lyrics in this offering suggests why Kirtana has been called “the Rumi of our time,” by many reviewers.
I created time and space,
to hold a mirror to my face…
That’s how worlds are born,
how from naught,
a thought becomes a form.
I had to pretend that Oneness could shatter
then down into matter I came.
And ten thousand forms burst into being–
no two exactly the same…
But as far as I could see,
nothing but images of me.
Lyrics from my favorite song, That’s My Story. I suggest reading them a few times and letting it sink in."

"Kirtana's music is a pure love transmission. Her lyrics, her voice, and her playing bring me to tears of joy".
"Her songs are Satsang. Her voice expresses the divine wail of the soul for its Beloved and its recognition of how close It is."
"Kirtana has become one of the most highly sought after modern-day minstrels of non-dual awakening. Her voice and lyrics reach with vulnerable longing for the heart of God, while at the same time transmitting the discovery of that, the opening to that, and the final consummation within it.”

- Eckhart Tolle

"..We were all blessed to bask in Kirtana's sublime musical Satsang. The words of truth, the extraordinary music, and most of all the presence of Grace that we experienced with Kirtana was heart-opening and moving beyond expression. We sat in the presence of the Infinite, reveling in the depth and the mystery of Freedom. I cried tears of joy and gratitude from beginning to end".

"When you hear the exquisite poetry of each song, speaking in a language of the heart - but a heart that longs for true revelation, not a temporary, sentimental solution - you will see why Kirtana has been called "The Rumi of our time."
