Snatam Kaur - Mother's Blessing (2005)

Snatman Kaur & Prabhu Nam Kaur Mother's Blessing

MOTHER'S BLESSING is a beautiful collaboration between mother and daughter, Prabhu Nam Kaur and Snatam Kaur, in celebration of the Great Mother. The music stays in line with what one might expect from a Snatam Kaur album - sweet, dreamy arrangements, a mix of Eastern and Western instrumentation (harmonium, strings, Indian percussion, light synth) and tender singing. The mantras themselves are derived from the Sikh tradition of Gurbani kirtan. They offer praise and ask for blessings from the Great Mother. Snatam and Prabhu have wonderful harmony - both of their voices are pitched rather similarly, so they complement each other well. This is a great album for exploring spirituality or providing an environment of love and peace during meditation.

Five classical kirtan tracks feature the rich vocal interplay between Prabhu Nam Kaur and her daughter, Snatam Kaur. Accompanied by layers of tabla, harmonium, viola, bansuri, keyboards, guitar and bass guitar On this gentle, deeply moving album, the intimate, musical conversation between mother and daughter wraps you in a soothing blanket of sound.

These devotional hymns are from the Sikh tradition of Gurbani Kirtan. The words are direct transmissions from the Sound Current, recited by Amar Das, the bards Satte and Balwand, and Guru Arjan, who lived in 16th century India. Anyone who sings or listens to these words with meditative mind and heart will be transported into the Sound Current from which the words have come.
