Info for From Dust
Jai-Jagdeesh's latest musical autobiography, "From Dust," is a poetry of broken loss that teaches how to become whole again. Jai-Jagdeesh spent the past few years confronting uncomfortable truths and questioning long-cemented beliefs – oftentimes in the wake of devastating revelations. Asking "why" and "how" came first, followed closely by introspection, and as layers of trauma revealed themselves and her foundation crumbled, a painful process began. This dark chapter, with its quest for understanding, learning, repair, and renewal, is revealed over the course of 14 tracks. Listeners are invited to bear witness to the grief and growth that comes from facing betrayal and disillusionment as Jai-Jagdeesh reclaims her whole Self – encouraging listeners to do the same.
Jai-Jagdeesh has toured globally, taking audiences on a musical ride that transcends the all-too-brief concert-going experience. Having amassed millions of listeners with songs that defy classification, Jai-Jagdeesh's relationship with music continues to span continents and cultures through the wide ocean of the human heart. During her career, she has collaborated with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Ian Urbina, charted multiple times in the top five of iTunes's World Music Charts, and charted in the top ten of Billboard's New Age Music charts.
Over the past decade, Jai-Jagdeesh has evolved into an innovative and courageous storyteller. Her music, rooted initially in mantra, has become a collection of songs that defy classification. These recordings have traveled the world — as has she, enriched by the profound friendships, diverse cultures, and varied musical traditions she has encountered along the way. Jai-Jagdeesh has toured extensively in North and Central America, Europe, Asia, and Australasia, always taking audiences on a musical ride that transcends the all-too-brief concert-going experience.
Having grown up in a spiritual community that recently and rightly shattered, Jai-Jagdeesh spent the past few years confronting uncomfortable truths and questioning long-cemented beliefs. Oftentimes in the wake of devastating revelations, asking “why” and “how” comes first, followed closely by introspection. Layers of trauma reveal themselves, the foundation crumbles, and a painful process begins. This dark chapter, with its quest for understanding, learning, repair, and renewal, is what Jai-Jagdeesh describes. It has fed each note and every word of this moment’s work.
On her forthcoming album, Jai-Jagdeesh visits new territory. A melancholy, curious, sad, mad, and bold statement, “From Dust” (coming in January 2023) is singer/songwriter poetry at its best. Listeners are invited, over the course of 13 tracks, to bear witness to the grief and growth of facing betrayal, disillusionment, and loss. We are invited to hear each quiet private thought and its spectrum of emotion. There is an almost painful sweetness and vulnerability here, supported by a deep strength and raw vocal power. “From Dust” allows us to witness Jai-Jagdeesh claiming her whole Self while encouraging listeners to do the same.
