Guru’s Greatness: Guru Brahma by Sarves Thiru: Review:
Upon hearing Sarves Thiru’s ‘Guru’s Greatness: Guru Brahma’, I immediately pictured a boat ride and painting along the way. This is because her music is like a splash of color that helps your mind breathe and feel complete. Sarves’s soft voice is a beautiful way for anything to be said really. She could say say ‘hello’ and it would sound equally peaceful. Her lyrical and singing style is pretty natural, and the vocal vibrato she instills in her singing is fantastic. The saxophone and guitar accompaniment feel amazing to hear and blend beautifully with the song. The genre is a mix between Carnatic, Indian classical, and some western fusion mixed in. I really enjoyed listening to the entirety of the song because as a musician, Indian music is a favorite of mine because of the likes of Ravi Shankar and his daughter Anoushka Shankar.
The melody of the second verse is a bit softer with the piano coming in. When the song can’t get any calmer, I mean, it enlightens you with an even stronger glow of tranquility. I was awestruck by the vocal harmonies too. Guru’s Greatness: Guru Brahma ends beautifully as the vocals and instruments tempos slow down for a sensational exit.
London-based singer and composer Sarves Thiru uses her music to promote positivity, health, and happiness. Sarves was educated in Malaysia and received early training in Carnatic music. She combines elements of that classical tradition with those of other global types of music to produce stunning mantras.
