I definitely remember when I first heard Simrit’s music. It was in a yoga class a few years ago at Wild Mountain Yoga in my hometown of Nevada City, California. After class, I asked the teacher who the artist was that was gracing our asana, and then I immeditately went home and purchased the album. Her sound is timeless and refreshing at the same time. When you hear her sing you know she is fully connected and in the flow. Her magestic world music sound has a way of bringing back the ‘remembering’ as well as inpsiring optimism for the future, all while being present. Her devotion appears effortless. All yoga teachers, music aficianados, and lovers of the mystery will appreciate this music. Thank YOU Simrit, for allowing us to catch up with you and learn a bit more about your story…

Why is the power of sound so important in yoga and life?
What are your insights on how to create a better relationship with the voice and how to use the human voice to heal?
Stop trying to sound like someone else and start working with your natural sound, uncontrived. Once we start trying to sound like someone else, we cut the soul out of our experience. The real healing happens when we embrace our own, unique sound and refine from there.

Simrit Kaur’s energy and music have a way of deeply touching people, understanding them, and bringing them with her into the unapologetic realm of the soul. Hailed world-wide for her haunting voice, music and undeniable and rare ability to transmit deep humanity and pure love through her sound, Simrit is known for her revolutionary innovation in hypnotic world and chant music that heals and evokes the innate power within all. She is a Renaissance woman who is the CEO of her independent record label, SIMRIT KAUR MUSIC, LLC, and she has topped World Music Charts including iTunes at #1 for consecutive weeks at a time, many times over, and Billboard’s top 5 in the World and New Age Music category. Her voice communicates with so much humanity. As an orphan child from the moment she was born in Greece, Simrit was the heir of a very distinct sound that she genetically inherited from a lineage of beloved Greek women singers going all the way from her mother (who was too young to take care of her) through her great grandmother. As a toddler, she was adopted by another Greek family from the American South, and she was raised in a rich Greek culture in South Carolina. Simrit records music and tours the world giving concerts and workshops with her band. She is the creator of The Supreme Sound, a yogic voice cultivation online course that has been attended by thousands across the globe. She is the co-creator of The Sweetest Love, an online course that she created with her husband that helps people deeply enjoy and succeed in their love relationships.
