Donna De Lory
Donna De Lory is a singer and songwriter whose music is a seamless blend of east and west, a hybrid of English lyrics and devotional Sanskrit mantras set to modern melodies. A longtime accompanying vocalist for Madonna, Donna De Lory has also recorded with legendary artists Selena, Carley Simon, Jewel, Bette Midler, and Carole King.
A devoted student of yoga and spiritual teachings, she is inspired by Western pop, Indian devotional music, Sanskrit mantras, North African grooves, psychedelic arrangements, and dance beats. De Lory enjoys making what she calls “meditative music” that can smartly, and sensuously, lend itself to dance-friendly remixes and heal through contemplation and celebration. Her CDs include Sanctuary, In the Glow, and Sky Is Open.
