The name Mirabai Ceiba expresses the influences of both India and Native Latin America. The Ceiba is the sacred tree of Latin America, where these trees are never cut but are allowed to grow very tall. “We wish our music could be like that kind of tree, with roots deep in the Mother Earth and branches extending wide into Father Sky. Mirabai is for us the wandering, the devotion, the inspiration in all the different aspects of divinity,” says Algelika and Markus.
In 2001, their eyes touched in the crowd at a street fair in Edinbourgh, Scottland and their love took hold of them. They created together Mirabai Ceiba expressing their hearts through music and sacred chant. There is something magical about the combination of Angelika Baumbach and Markus Sieber. “Their music comes from a pure space of love and devotion. It is soothing, peaceful, and very meditative, ” says Deva Premal. Their voices and skillful dance with their instruments is so authentic and pure that you feel the sacred sound current in such a precise way that your heartbeat begins to beat with the rhythm and your blood flows with the melody of their song. A concert with Mirabai Ceiba is uplifting, purifying, inspiring and altogether powerful.
With deep, rich journeys into the sound that is lush, earthy and otherworldly, you will travel your inner universe through their music. Their incredible vocals are accompanied by Angelika’s harp and Markus’ guitar to stunning effect. Ancient Gurmukhi Mantra’s, sacred chants and songs of spiritual poetry by Rumi, Thich Nhat Hanh, Kabir and their own lyrics blend in a unique way towards the One.
