‘Give peace a Chant’ is a contemporary music collection of traditional Kirtan and songs written by Alana Grier. These sacred songs or bhajans, are inter-spiritual, devotional songs, recorded in A-432 Hertz (Hz) tuning for it’s therapeutic properties.
Singing along generates the positive frequencies demonstrated by HeartMath science and research. Metta means ‘love’ (in a non-romantic sense), friendliness, or kindness. This mantra develops and cultivates Metta through gratitude, forgiveness and love.
Alana is a songwriter, vocalist, and bass player with a world beat, eclectic sound. She wrote her first songs performing in Reggae bands in Hawaii, opening up for bands like Alpha Blondie in the mid 80’s. Her first vocal coach studied Hindustani classical voice India. She went to her first Kirtan at age 17 and music has been an integral part of her spiritual practice ever since.
Alana released a CD of 10 original songs, Sweet Deal, co-produced by Grammy award winner, Larry Mitchell, in October of 2010. Her unique vocal style, engaging melodies and insightful lyrics are reminiscent of the breakout freshmen CD’s of Norah Jones (Come Away With Me), Sheryl Crow (Tuesday Night Music Club) and Corrine Bailey Rae (Corrine Bailey Rae).
