U.N. International Day of Peace
SACRED CHANT CONCERT
Snatyam Kaur has become one of the most popular international artists of our time and she performs her sacred music around the world. Crystalline and radiant, Snatam's voice is grounded in the musical lineage of the Punjabi Sikhs but with a decidedly Western flavor. It's a call-and-response kirtan tradition, which builds an energetic momentum that has been called a musical group meditation and a yoga class in melody. She may lead audiences in a round of pranayama (yogic breathing) or get everyone on their feet for a stretching exercise that soon becomes a sacred dance. By the end of the night you will be let in on a great cosmic secret: devotional music is great fun.
Snatam plays harmonium (Indian pump organ), as well as violin and guitar. She is ably supported by Guru Ganesha Singh, who handles the guitar with effortless grace. Percussion is provided by Ramesh Kannan on tablas.
