Renowned music producer Kuljit Bhamra collaborates with new artist Ram Meetook
One of the UK’s leading South Asian musicians Kuljit Bhamra (Bombay Dreams, Bend it like Beckham, Bhaji on the Beach) has produced a spiritual new album entitled Sanctuary – a soothing, relaxing and meditative album working alongside new artist Ram Meetook. The album which comprises of seven tracks will be released on Keda Records and available on 8th December 2014.
Ram Meetook is the only person thus named! Hailing from a religious family in Mauritius he dedicated his life to meditation and spiritual practice. Firmly settled in the UK now, his parents strongly preserved their Hindu beliefs as immigrants and kept their rooted traditions alive with the young Ram growing up embracing his faith through music. During the summer months, Ram’s work also sees him spend time at Chelsea Physic Garden - a medicinal plant garden in London. He says that the peaceful surroundings and atmosphere have also helped nurture his soul. All of this has led to him fulfil his main passion, which has been singing and his distinctive voice is to be clearly heard resonating throughout the album.
Producer Kuljit Bhamra worked with Ram Meetook to orchestrate the music on the album which includes a Mumbai choir, Bamboo Flute, Dholak, Toombi, Guitars and Tabla. Kuljit said: 'Ram's voice is very unique. He has a deep, earthy and distinctly recognisable tone. It has been transformational for me producing this album and I feel that it has returned me to spiritualism in a strong way.'
