Snatam Kaur's new release, Beloved, is a gift in the world of Mantras and Chanting.
The album builds landscapes of song that have Snatam Kaur's voice opening up in totally new directions from her previous albums.
Snatam worked with producer Jamshied Sharifi for the first time on this album, recording live in-studio with her band, with music that has been nurtured and developed over the last few years on tour. What Snatam shares on this album is raw and rich and filled with her love and longing for the Beloved. Stuart Fuchs'guitar brings a sweetness that translates the emotion and devotion of this music into notes and chords that you feel played on your heartstrings. Tabla player Neelamjit Singh creates a rhythmic heartbeat beneath the music that you feel your body beginning to sync with as you journey through the album. Bassist Sarah Siri Kirtan Carlisle creates the earthy undertones that pull it all together. There are also guest appearances from other incredible instrumentals including Steve Gore on Bansuri flute.
