Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia — IMEE Ooi is a well-known music producer, composer, arranger and vocalist who has modernised Buddhist chants and let mantras (a religious or mystical syllable or poem, typically from the Sanskrit language) to music. Her Chant of Metta is frequently played at major Buddhist events all over the world. She is also the musical director and composer of two highly-acclaimed stage musicals, Siddhartha and Above Full Moon.

Ooi, a classical pianist by training, formed I.M.M, Musicworks in 1997 and to date she has released over 20 albums. Some of her other well-known compositions are Jayamangalagatha, Heart Sutra Nilakantha Dharani-The Great Compassionate Mantra and The Guan Yin Mantra.

“Music can touch our hearts and minds deeply. It is a very effective way of expressing emotions, transferring messages and delivering hope. Thus, learning the Dharma through music and using music as a bridge to bring the Dharma to people is a heartwarming journey of wonder and joy. It is an experience where religion, art and way of life come together,” said Ooi.
