Snatam Kaur has been singing and playing music all of her 28 years. As a young girl in California, she learned to sing with her mother in the Sikh musical style. As she has grown, her musical scope has expanded, and she now includes many traditions and many instruments in her exploration of sound.
Snatam's voice has the powerful combination of sweetness, purity and strength, and her unique interpretation of music comes from her soul. She can sing in styles of traditional Gurbani kirtan, American folk music, jazz, rock and anything in between.
Living in Eugene, Oregon, and a member of the group Peace Family, Snatam is just beginning to tap into her unlimited potential. Watch out for our future offerings from her.

Anthropologist and author David Wade gives a lecture on the current state of humanity as a web of cultural societies, threatened by climate change and egocentric nation states. An enthralling and compelling witness of how a dominant culture can wreak havoc for the sake of progress by destroying the very thing that identifies it as unique and wondrous. Our great diversity of culture spans the globe yet our western focus on racial differences obscures our true commonality from the genes of our DNA to the unrelenting questions of who am I, why am I here and what is my purpose.
