Snatam Kaur Live in Portland
Snatam’s concert tours bring her joyous, uplifting music to audiences everywhere as she performs compositions from her new album Beloved and much-beloved songs from her rich catalog of classic world devotional CDs. Timeless Snatam Kaur recordings such as Prem, Grace, Anand, Liberation’s Door and Light of the Naam, have brought inspiration and a deep sense of peace to listeners worldwide with their captivating blend of traditional sacred mantras and expansive musical settings blending Eastern and Western influences. But the best way to experience the music, warmth and wisdom of Snatam Kaur is live in concert.
“The concert is an opportunity for people to be awakened to the power of mantra,” she says; “to fall in love with mantras and be healed by them. With these concerts I hope to connect people with these mantras so that they get a sense of their own intrinsic light and love. I know for myself that chanting together in these settings is super healing and super powerful for relieving stress, tension and that feeling of being overwhelmed that I think is pretty common for in this day and age. It’s a way for people to come and find that sense of peace again.”
