On Prabhu Nam Kaur`s second release, Seasons of the Soul, there is a sacred wisdom that is transmuted to the listener with every note. Gentle yet powerful, Prabhu Nam Kaur`s voice cradles you like the arms of the divine mother, creating a sense of complete safety and harmony as you are wrapped in the beauty of the music. Prabhu Nam Kaur is accompanied by her daughter, Snatam Kaur, with her sweet harmonies, as well as by Spanish guitar, acoustic and electric guitars, clarinet, viola, harmonium, tablas, mandolin, flutes, bass, and gentle keyboards.
Prabhu Nam Kaur has been singing sacred mantra and shabad from the Kundalini Yoga and Sikh traditions for more than 35 years. She aspires to sing these songs of God with devotion, so that their wisdom and beauty can shine forth, and so that listeners can find their own ability to sing and experience these gifts as well.
Prabhu Nam Kaur began taking piano lessons when she was 5 years old and studied the flute for a few years in high school. She sang in the school choir and with her sisters at home for fun. She never had any formal training in voice, but all the years of piano lessons transferred easily over to the harmonium. The first shabad she ever learned was Dhan Dhan Ram Das Gur in 1974. She studied with Amarjeet Kaur and Jasbir Kaur. Both of these teachers came to teach in the U.S. from India at the request of Yogi Bhajan. In 1977, Prabhu Nam Kaur went to Amritsar, India, and met Bhai Hari Singh who played at the Golden Temple for 54 years before retiring. She has continued studying with him whenever the opportunity has arisen, both in India and in the U.S.
Prabhu Nam Kaur says that her daughter, Snatam Kaur, continually inspires her, and if she has taught Snatam about music, Snatam has certainly taught her much as well. Yogi Bhajan taught that the basis of being a singer of Gurbani Kirtan is a willingness to serve the shabad, an exalted spiritual practice in itself. She looks forward to deepening that practice.
