Product Description

Product Description

On this gentle, deeply moving album, the intimate, musical conversation between mother and daughter wraps you in a soothing blanket of sound. 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. 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.

Product Description

Snatam and her mother Prabhu Nam Kaur, a soulful singer in her own right, unite on this duet album "Mother's Blessing," where the deep love between them was first apparent to their audience. It feels stronger, as if the continuing cycle of life has brought them even closer together. On this gentle, deeply moving album, the intimate, musical conversation between mother and daughter wraps you in a soothing blanket of sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and Inspiring 21 Dec 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Being a British Sikh I was looking for shabad (religious songs) presented in a way that I could understand them. I wanted to know the meaning of these beautiful 'gurmukhi' words used in Shabad so when I sing them I could feel them from my heart. This CD helps me achieve that. These shabad are slow with beautiful music so that you can mediate and feel at peace. They also come with english translations. Sung by mother and daughter together they are a real inspiration. Absolutely perfect..

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and touching 8 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD
You don't have to be a sikh to enjoy this beautiful devotional music. Thomas Barquee has done a great job in making it appealing to the western ear. The blend of the two voices magnifies the beauty of Snatam's own voice. It is worth hearing for the first track alone.

I dont think Amazon have got samples up yet but if you want a taste of Snatam Kaur's wonderful pure voice, go to [...] and you can listen to many tracks. That's where I stumbled across her and once I heard that voice I have wanted every new release that comes along. It's the sort of music that you can just play on repeat and it has a wonderful uplifting effect. You dont have to be religious or even particularly spiritual to enjoy this music, but it will touch your soul and enter you deeply.

This is probably my favorite of all Snatam Kaur's music. It's magical and wonderful. I wish she and her Mother had even more albums together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful devotional hymns 23 Oct 2009
By Richard Cantor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have not listened to all of Snatam Kaur's CDs and music, but of those I have, this is one of my favorites, and by far, the one that comes closest to containing nothing but devotional hymns.

On this CD, you will not find any "popular" type ballads sung in English, with melodies that have crossover appeal to a contemporary pop genre. As the inner liner notes say, "these devotional hymns are from the Sikh tradition of Gurbani Kirtan."

The voices on the selections are those of Snatam Kaur and her mother, Prabhu Nam Kaur.

The cover did not appeal to me due to my perception that the theme of "Mother's Blessing," combined with the pairing of Snatam Kaur and her mother probably meant a highly feminine musical content that would appeal to women and mothers only. Was I wrong!!

The songs are among the most beautiful I have heard from her collection. What makes these special is that I have never heard them performed EVER in any of her concerts. In other words, I literally heard them for the first time with nothing to compare them to - being exposed to such beauty is a powerful experience.

My favorite is the song "Dhan Dhan Ram Das Gur." I played this CD for a Sikh friend who had neither heard of her nor her music, and watching him listen to this CD was like watching someone drink from a glass of water after being deprived of water for days. He could barely take all the beauty from this music.

Inner liner notes include lyrics and translation, as well as a short tribute by Snatam Kaur to the inspiration for the music.

A word of caution on who would enjoy this CD - the music I would say is more for purists who appreciate this kind of unadulterated devotional music vs. those who like the more accessible devotional music with English lyrics or familiar melodies.

For the record, many musicians are involved with performing on this CD, including the great guitarist GuruGanesha Singh Khalsa, and various instruments are used by other performers such as the viola, bansuri flute, bass, percussion, and harmoniums. The sound is that of a studio recording (not live concert performance), one without any audio engineering flaws.

A beautiful beautiful CD!

The music is lovely for a yoga class or just easy listening to mellow out to. It is soft, rhythmic and has beautiful harmonies. I find it very soothing to listen to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of Light! 5 April 2007
By Amitabha Amitabha - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I would say out of the many albums I have had the opportunity to listen too over the years. I am happy to say this album is full of light and inspiration for all to listen too. I feel the Mother of us all in the singing. I am not so sure that the person's playing the instruments hold the same vibration as the singer's, however this is irrelavent to this album. I am a devotee of Yogananda and all their music as SRF holds dear to my heart. As it is very difficult to find music that is pure today!!! If you are looking for that. Then this is for you. Many do not have a clue what music and sounds around us does to our conciousness. We are mostly oblivious to this. Thank you for performing and giving us something clean and pure for us all to enjoy while we are here. Namaste
