SIMRIT SONGS OF RESILIENCE

Her energy and music have a way of deeply touching people, understanding them, and bringing them with her into the unapologetic realm of the soul.

Hailed world-wide for her haunting voice, music and undeniable and rare ability to transmit deep humanity and pure love through her sound, Simrit is known for her revolutionary innovation in hypnotic world and chant music that heals and evokes the innate power within all. She is a Renaissance woman who is the CEO of her independent record label, SIMRIT KAUR MUSIC, LLC, and she has topped World Music Charts including iTunes at #1 for consecutive weeks at a time, many times over, and Billboard Music at #1. Her voice communicates with so much humanity.

As an orphan child from the moment she was born in Greece, Simrit was the heir of a very distinct sound that she genetically inherited from a lineage of beloved Greek women singers going all the way from her mother (who was too young to take care of her) through her great grandmother. As a toddler, she was adopted by another Greek-American family from the American South, and she was raised in a rich Greek culture in South Carolina.

Steeped and studied in the mystical Byzantine music of Greece from a very young age, Simrit’s music stands on the shoulders of this very influential sound. She was also inspired by the classical and folk music of Greece. Growing up she was also expanded by the swirling sounds of Nana Mouskouri, Glykeria, Singh Kaur, Led Zeppelin, Mazzy Star, The Grateful Dead, Bob Marley, Jeff Buckley, Loreena McKennitt, the devotional music of India and Africa, and many others.
