The musical compositions bring Chanting and Healing energies such as ALOHA Blessings, Veda, Upanishad, Dalai Lama temple chants, words of RUMI, Native American Chants, Tibetan Chants, Lord’s Prayer, etc. The music of AUM helps in meditation, yoga, and the healing of our minds through beautifully arranged tones and elevated vibrations as music therapy. Rupam’s research about Neuroscience and Music Therapy is currently ongoing at Disability institutes and Brain Research centres, documenting early intervention in pain relief, autism, and mental depression.

“With the sounds of AUM, we have brought new age and world music a large step forward. It is a unique experience of Eastern and Western music, based on roots of our culture and ancient mantras yet with forward-thinking creations of sound. My work reflects the message of Oneness, Humanity, Peace, and Love,” says Rupam.
