LEARN MORE ABOUT PARVATI
A chart-topping, award-winning Canadian singer, composer, producer, yogi, activist and author, Parvati has been featured on Entertainment Tonight, BPM TV and CBC Radio. Her live shows have been televised nationally in Canada. She has performed at Madison Square Garden (NYC), Earls Court (London) and the former Club Maria (Berlin). Her electrifying stage presence brings to life for audiences a brilliant field of interconnection and a clear, unwavering message of love for self, others and our planet.
Earth Day 2014 marked Parvati’s ascension to #1 in the Canadian electronica charts, fitting given that Parvati dedicates her music to the well-being of all, including Mother Earth.
Parvati was conceived in a field of snow angels in Montreal and escorted into this world on New Year’s Eve by a man in a tuxedo. Inspired by the symphonic sounds of Nature, the laughter of the Buddha and the sound of the human spirit, Parvati composes and produces texturally rich electronic soundscapes, angelic vocals, powerhouse dance anthems and pop songs that carry a profound and timeless message about life in the positive possibilities.
Parvati’s background of study, not only as a musician and composer but as an architect, is reflected in the sonic structures she creates, combining a five-octave singing voice with effervescent, multi-layered sounds.
Parvati began her career in Montreal’s electronic underground. This quickly expanded to performing in the rave scene in Toronto, where she became an impresario for conscious, drug-free raves.
While teaching yoga at a fitness club in Toronto, Parvati heard her spoken instructions mixing with the beats of a dance song from the next room. This inspired her to write and produce her boundary-breaking song Yoga in the Nightclub, which brings ancient yogic wisdom into the everyday of the new millennium. Its cinematic, fan-funded video illustrates how our inner light can transform dark places through the story of a futuristic interpretation of the ancient Hindu goddess Durga. Parvati herself created its costumes and narrative, and co-directed the music video with Adam Nathan, an award-winning MTV director. This video also features the work of HBO award-winning cinematographer Roger Singh. Parvati says, “Yoga in the Nightclub reminds us that we can find awakened presence everywhere.” Still to be officially released, this track has already attracted significant attention from fans and industry alike.
Inspired by Parvati’s life-changing trip to the North Pole, where she performed to raise awareness of the melting polar ice caps, Parvati’s upcoming self-produced concept album ETHOSgives voice to our connection with each other and our planet, which Parvati sees as our collective mother. A concept album that blends traditional Sanskrit chants with lush soundscapes, electronic beats and soaring vocals, ETHOS will be available in stereo and 5.1 surround sound to feature Parvati’s immersive, audiophile production style.
Parvati’s previous works include her theatrical show Natamba, in a similar artistic current to David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust and Peter Gabriel’s flower character. The narrative follows Natamba, an intergalactic being of liquid gold light, who comes to Earth to experience human form and share a message of love and interconnection. The show set a new direction for Parvati in live performance art, weaving together lights, video, fantastical costumes, music, poetry and electronic soundscapes. Natamba has attracted the attention of Cirque du Soleil directors, toured Europe and headlined significant US festivals since it was first piloted in 2007. Natamba the character returned in 2016 and introduced Parvati’s new character Krystelle, with the single I Am Light. Watch in 2017 for the characters Durga, Shakti, Quan Yin and Illuminelle.
