Dreaming in Sanskrit
- Artist: NIKKO,MARTI / DJ DREZ
- Format: CD
- Release Date:2/17/2015
2015 debut album from Marti Nikko. In collaboration with producer/turntablist (and her husband) DJ Drez, Marti has created a diverse collection of songs with a devotional focus and Hip-Hop foundation. DREAMING IN SANSKRIT is grounded in Drez's unmistakably funky signature and gift for sonic construction, but the album is absolutely Nikko-centric. Marti's enticing, fiercely soft voice permeates a diverse collection of musical styles including Dub Roots, Indian hymn and Balkan beats. The common thread woven throughout is Nikko's spirit of love and devotion. Nikko's innate spark illuminates DREAMING IN SANSKRIT. Her soul-soaked vocals dance and play in the spaces impeccably arranged by DJ Drez, highlighting a natural chemistry developed and enhanced through years of performing, living and loving together. The result is a beautiful, eclectic collection of music made for all moods and conscious movement practices.
