"Imagine that the Aurora Borealis could sing: that’s Simrit’s voice. Timeless, Strong, and Ethereal as a whale’s song.” – LA Y Magazine
"For Simrit, singing is not a performance, it is a sacred worship of the Divine. Her voice, her music, and her teaching, reflect this devotion which seems to come from her so effortlessly. This devotion is a gift, a talent beyond any, that will lead thousands into the lightness of being and awareness that is so vital to humanity in this day and age." -SNATAM KAUR
“First of all, I’m such a fan of Simrit. The first time I saw her live I thought – wow she’s kind of punk rock. I don’t know why I thought that, but that’s the element that drew me to exploring her music. Her sense of melody, her energy, and her musicality set her apart. Simrit, to me, is the voice of this new day and age.” -BELINDA CARLISLE
The Simrit Experience
Neo-Psychedelic World Beat & Ethereal Wave band, SIMRIT, has created waves with packed theaters and concert halls, chart-topping albums, and raving fans world-wide that have powered a palpable musical movement. Transcending genres with their eclectic and eccentric blend of instruments and lineages, the SIMRIT experience is based around its lead singer – songwriter, Simrit Kaur, born in Athens, Greece and adopted by Greek Americans into South Carolina. Filling out the SIMRIT sound and experience is Salif Bamakora on the 21-string west African kora, Shannon Hayden on electric cello (that she runs through a pedal board with wild effects) and guitar, Jared May on bass & Moog synthesizer, and Devon Ashley on drums and other percussion. Their music is known for its hypnotic, deep-pocket groove, haunting beauty,edge, and psychedelic atmosphere. It has been called exotic funk while also being likened to the the epic, cinematic feels of David Lynch films.
It won’t take very long after the music begins for you to realize that this isn’t your average concert. From the transcendent sounds, the hypnotic groove, world-class musicians, and Simrit’s mesmerizing VOICE…Get ready for lift off!
