Meditation Mix: Ami Dang

Ambient Classical

Baltimore artist Ami Dang creates meditative soundscapes using sitar sounds, electronics and vocals.

One year ago, the UK entered its first lockdown after Boris Johnson made the announcement on 23 March. To mark the one-year anniversary this week, we asked sitarist and producer Ami Dang to create a meditation mix. Something to help us get through – because, in the UK, we’re almost near the end of it now.

Dang’s work has often been steeped in a deep mysticism, finding a tension between ancient stories, fairytales and modern electronics. Her 2020 release, Meditations Mixtape, Vol. 1was created early on in the pandemic after her aunt and uncle became ill with coronavirus. Made up of ambient sounds, Hindustani classical music and Sikh hymns, it’s a mixtape that’s been designed for prayer and reflection. In the description she wrote: “Whether you or a loved one are ill, you’ve lost work, or are feeling general anxiety about the state of the world, these meditations are for you.”

Her Meditation Mix finds her, once again, in a reflective mood. Here, Dang dreams of “whispering secrets into ears, warm tides, summer leaves floating down the creek, pressure drops before the storm, flowers that look like snowballs, and roaring laughter”. Some of the small joys we haven’t been able to experience lately.
