“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.”
“Soothing, haunting, brimming with mystery and groove…”~Boston Yoga
“Some artists can bring true commitment to age-old meditations, urging everyone from pop stars to theater audiences to fall in love with the words of South Asian sages. Some artists have that presence that both highly engages and soothes, an ear that can hear the resonances that bridge continents and souls. Vocalist and songwriter Simrit, born in Athens, Greece, adopted and raised in the American South, is one of these artists.” ~Rock Paper Scissors
As a child Simrit was joined and raised with a brother with special needs who was also adopted from a different family in Greece. With her unique upbringing and with no one in her family that was blood related, Simrit learned at an early age that connection is profoundly deep through the heart and soul. Her voice has been what she has always experienced as her true connection to herself and others.
“The Revolution is the courage to be who we really are…to speak our truth in the midst of fear…to be authentic, no matter what people may think or say. It is the strength to walk alone knowing we are not alone, and it is the strength to walk together into the unknown” – Simrit
As listeners describe her music as otherworldly, Simrit is known for her profound relationship with melody and rhythm, and she continues to inspire an authentic and fresh experience through her albums and her live concerts. By simply existing within her natural relationship to music, she enchants the listener into a world of wonder and mystery. Simrit’s music brings the depth of the sacred and ancient to the modern, and her timeless sound deeply weaves the listener into what many have described as an altered state of consciousness while simultaneously bringing them into the depths of their own healing and humanity.
Simrit is a student, practitioner and a certified teacher of Kundalini Yoga and Naad Yoga (the sciences of sound and consciousness). She is also a certified level II Reiki practitioner. Her highly acclaimed yoga of the voice and sound course, ‘The Supreme Sound’, continues to be studied by thousands worldwide. She records, composes, produces music, and tours with her band giving concerts and workshops across the globe.
“The universe is powered by a central, cosmic vibratory sound. The useful part of this sound current is called the Naad. This is the mystic force revered by sages and yogis. Simrit has a rare and precious power: She can interlock and interrelate with this sound current and open spaces where prayers are answered.”
