about

Deva Madhuro, musically inspired and spiritually guided by Osho, once lived in Munich. One day, his head was filled with to many ideas, concepts and words. He went to the river Isar and ran upstream. Exhausted he sat down by the river, closed his eyes and...received this beautiful song that has already travelled the world. Deva Madhuro lives now in Western Australia. Once a year he travels Europe to give concerts. www.madhuro.com
I am greatful for a long conversation with Deva and very happy that I was granted his permission and blessing to record this song, especially because we have been singing it many times here in Munich sitting by the river Isar. In a way the song is returning to its source. I played with the last words of his lyrics, like a river picking up speed, leading to the ocean, I am ending with just water and sound.

lyrics

I just closed my eyes and the words are carried away by the river
What is left behind I can‘t say, its just the sound of the water
It‘s just the sound of the water
It‘s just the sound
