Pritpal Singh hosted our 17th HomeKirtan & Chat Live Video Program on December 23 with special guests Mardana from Germany. Video includes live kirtan, stories and discussion with the artists!
About the Artists
Mardana is a spiritual music band from Germany. With Mardana, the three artists Sat Karam Kaur (Harmonium, Keyboards, Vocals), Guru Surya Singh (Tabla, Percussions, Vocals) and Gurbasant Singh (Guitars, Vocals) have created a musical project in which they enrobe shabads, spiritual songs and Kundalini Yoga Mantras in a virtuoso musical vestment with great variety.
The compositions, mostly sung in Gurmukhi, an ancient language that evolved from Sanskrit, are enriched with spiritual english songs and create an entrancing blend of western and traditional sounds.
The special attention of the trio lies in the multifold vocal settings, enhancing the character as a band, and finding unique expression in the choirs of many of their pieces. Mardana has a fantastic groove: capturing beats and invigorating rhythms are their speciality, yet as important as calm pieces and soothing ballads or an etheric chant which invites you to search for infinity.
