Snatam Kaur has been singing and playing music virtually all of her life. As a young girl in California, she learned to sing with her mother in the Sikh musical style. As she has grown, her musical scope has expanded, and she now includes many traditions and many instruments in her exploration of sound.
In 2000, Snatam Kaur signed with Spirit Voyage Records — the founder of which, Guru Ganesha Singh, became her manager and guitarist. Her professional collaboration also includes New Age music producer Thomas Barquee. Titles of her Kundalini Yoga CDs include: Prem, Shanti, Grace, Anand, Liberation's Door, and Ras.
Snatam spends much of the year on the road, singing and teaching yoga wherever she’s invited. Sometimes the audiences are very large, other times they’re small. “My prayer is that of the 100 or 1000 people who come, every one of them will become a Nelson Mandela or a Mahatma Gandhi, that they—and we—will experience that level of unfolding of consciousness. “The purpose of our concerts is to create a beautiful experience, to offer people a chance to go deep within themselves and be uplifted from the inside out. The music allows them to experience the quietness within, a total sense of contentment and gratitude. “Sacred music can help people find peace inside themselves so they can express it outside themselves. It’s humbling but also empowering that our inner space absolutely does have an effect on the planet around us.”
Snatam's voice has the powerful combination of sweetness, purity and strength, and her unique interpretation of music comes from her soul. She can sing in styles of traditional Gurbani kirtan, American folk music, jazz, rock, and anything in between.
On her official web site she states, “Music is essential in my personal practice. It’s the core spiritual practice of Sikhs." Many of the words are in Gurumukhi, the sacred language of the Sikhs. “I play the harmonium, guitar, and violin, but my main instrument is my voice. It’s the way I communicate with my Creator.”
Snatum Kaur is available on a wide range of Kundalini yoga CDs. Her music is popular & well respected and her audience continues to grow. Be inspired - listen to one of her Kundalini Yoga CDs today. All her CDs on the Yoga Technology Website have accompanying free MP3 music samples.
