  • Description

     'Ras' translates as the 'Sublime Essence of God's Name.' On this release, you can feel that sublime essence in every note. Snatam's voice is open and filled with such a deep and abiding heart-centered longing for the divine, it is palpable. Snatam Kaur's voice is artfully blended with Manose's flute, Benji Wertheimer's esraj, Thomas Barquee's keyboard, Simone Selle's guitar and Sat Nam Singh Ramgotra's tabla. Produced and arranged by Thomas Barquee, this album marks their 10th year of musical collaboration in Snatam's recordings and is truly a tribute to the journey that their music has taken over this time. Snatam Kaur's music travels the globe, and with this album it is clear that it will continue to reach further corners as new listeners hear and fall in love with the sweet nectar of her voice.

    Snatam Kaur was introduced to music and spiritual practice at an early age. Schooled in kirtan, meditation, and Gurmukhi, the Sanskrit-based language of Sikh scriptures from Northern India, the young Snatam Kaur began to develop the devotion and skills that have grown and blossomed into a compelling, profound talent.

    Snatam Kaur's parents brought her up in the Sikh tradition as taught by Yogi Bhajan. From an early age, she practiced yoga and meditation daily and her mother taught her Gurmukhi. "My mother taught me the alphabet on my way to school every morning," recalls Snatam. Her Sikh community augmented these lessons with instruction in kirtan (devotional chanting). "Through these experiences, I learned the pronunciation," she says, "but also I learned the passion for what I was singing because these gatherings were so spiritual."
