Diipak

Dogma

reviewed by Gary Levinson

“I wasn’t born to be afraid” Diipak begins in “Live Today”, the last song on his first full-length album, Dogma. “Wow” I thought when I heard it. “What a great lyric!” With these few words Diipak sums up the current debacle of our times. Although the sum of all material wealth is at a all-time high, peoples’ lives are simply not better.

It’s not hard to understand, just look at a newborn infant. Infants crave to be close to their parents, because when they are alone, then feel insecure. They are comforted by the feeling of security that comes from knowing that they will be protected.

In our current version of a market economy, the reining doctrine is that of efficiency. Efficiency rules our lives: the companies that are more efficient make more money, and more efficient workers make for more efficient companies.

Now, with what tool do companies hone their efficiency? They use the fear of losing one’s job. And it is this very fear that drives the employees to be ever more efficient.

Now is efficiency that endgame of humanity? Certainly not, the arts, education, research, simple sympathy are more defining of the human experience than efficiency.

This mania of efficiency is a dogma.

This and other dogmas, are the bogeymen that Diipak is railing against. Along with the substance of his lyrics, Diipak gives us an eclectic mix of musical styles in his first full-length album.

The Indian / Oriental influence is clear in the opening number “Greenest Grass”, which clearly has its roots in Indian bhajans. Among the 12 songs, others have a strong reggae feel to them.

The dominant style, however, is that of a simple folks singer. Diipak is a spiritual Jackson Browne, an oriental Phil Ochs, or a modern Woody Guthrie.

Diipak’s first class performance is matched by a silk-smooth production, something the earlier folk-singers could only dream of.

An impressive first album, listening to Dogma is an active first-class demonstration of Diipak’s fine, profound spiritual indie roots.
