Event Description

“For Simrit, singing is not a performance, it is a sacred worship of the Divine. Her voice, her music, and her teaching, reflect this devotion which seems to come from her so effortlessly. This devotion is a gift, a talent beyond any, that will lead thousands into the lightness of being and awareness that is so vital to humanity in this day and age.” - Snatam Kaur

“I’m such a fan of Simrit. Her musicality and energy set her apart. She is the voice of this new day and age.” – Belinda Carlisle

Her sound is hailed world-wide as haunting, hypnotic, healing and majestic, and it has topped World Music Charts, including iTunes at #1 for consecutive weeks, Billboard at #3. Her voice is known to communicate with so much humanity.

Simrit was born into a lineage of Greek women singers, with her great grandmother being the Greek famed Tula Demetriou. Simrit was born in Athens, Greece to a 17 year old singer (grand daughter of Tula Demetriou) who wasn't able to take care of children at the time. When she was just over a year old, she was adopted into the United States and raised in South Carolina by another Greek family. She was steeped and studied in the mystical Byzantine music of Greece from a very young age, and she was also influenced by the classical and folk music of Greece. She also grew up expanded by the swirling sounds of Nana Mouskouri, Singh Kaur, Led Zeppelin, Mazzy Star, The Grateful Dead, Bob Marley, Jeff Buckley, Loreena McKennitt, the devotional music of India and Africa, and many others.

Simrit is an independent artist who is the CEO of her own record label, Simrit Kaur Music. She is a Renaissance woman who is known for her revolutionary innovation with mantra music and her unique ability to transmit a potent level of humanity and pure love through her sound.

As listeners describe her music as otherworldly, Simrit is known for her profound relationship with melody and rhythm, and she continues to inspire an authentic and fresh experience through her albums and her live concerts. Simrit’s music brings the depth of the sacred and ancient to the modern, and her timeless sound deeply weaves the listener into what many have described as an altered state of consciousness while simultaneously bringing them into the depths of their own humanity.

Simrit is a student, practitioner and teacher of Kundalini and Naad Yoga (the sciences of sound and consciousness). Her yoga of the voice and sound course, 'The Supreme Sound', has been highly acclaimed worldwide. She records, composes and produces music, and tours with her band giving concerts and workshops across the globe.
