Snatam Kaur Khalsa
Snatam Kaur Khalsa (USA) The Kundalini Research Institute honors Snatam Kaur with our 2011 Outstanding Service Award. Snatam represents what our global community is all about, reaching across borders and cultures to embrace our common purpose—peace and tranquility in the Aquarian Age. One of the most popular New Age artists of our time, selling over 50,000 albums a year, Snatam Kaur has become an international favorite with fans across the globe.
Snatam Kaur has an amazing ability to transform traditional chants into a contemporary sound that appeals to the modern ear yet awakens an ancient yearning in the soul. She brings the sacred chants of Kundalini Yoga and the Siri Guru Granth Sahib to audiences all around the world. Sacred Sounds Radio calls her music “spiritually uplifting and deeply soul cleansing.” Ram Dass, celebrated author of Be Here Now, says that “in Snatam’s voice…there is purity, clarity, and love.” One fan spoke for all when he said, “We come to Snatam’s concerts to experience the beautiful atmosphere her voice creates, to heal and grow.”
Snatam Kaur is an ambassador for 3HO (a United Nations affiliate), and is deeply committed to supporting the U.N.’s Peace Resolution through her ongoing Celebrate Peace Tour. She brings music, Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan® and meditation to the communities she visits, as well as to hospices, juvenile detention centers, and schools she visits along the way.
KRI is a non-profit organization that holds the teachings of Yogi Bhajan and provides accessible and relevant resources to teachers and students of Kundalini Yoga.
