ABOUT THE RELEASE


Born in Gabon from a father of the black panther people—the Bahoumbou tribe—and a Singaporean mother of Chinese, British, and Indian Brahmin origins, Devi lived a childhood of both violence and magic, of wealth and hardship.

At age 12, she ended up in the Bronx with her mother and two brothers in an even stranger land. She sought solace in the World Music section at Tower Records, seeking the mythical Africa that haunted her memories of childhood.

Over time, she found those fantastical sounds, too, in American and Western music: first in hip hop and R&B, later in ambient and drone. Devi became a vagabond of sound, DJ-ing all over the New York City nightlife scene starting at a young age with a fake ID.

Today, Devi lives in Brooklyn and studies sound therapy and conciousness. It is the mechanism that creates worlds that she channels through this leading edge, this music, her Masma Dream World.
