With a nice mixture of Mantra, Gurmukhi and English, Satkirin Kaurs album Sacred Kiss surges with originality. And with its abundance of straight-up rhythmic pieces, it makes you stand up and dance for joy. If you want to introduce someone to Kirtan and spiritual Kundalini Yoga Music, this is the perfect album!
Many tracks on Sacred Kiss can be traced back to the songs shared by Yogi Bhajan in the 1970s. Satkirin Kaur was amongst the students who learned them, sings them, and brings them to us in this wonderful collection. This includes wonderful poetic songs such as the Marriage Song, the Mean Man song, a poem to Yogi Bhajan, and even a song for kids. Some tracks are coupled with mantras, while others are sung in both English and the sacred Gurmukhi.
Several of these songs are also being used in the Yoga teacher training Level 2 modules and have not been made available since the 1970’s, such as the songs All things come from God or Mean Man) – Sacred Kiss combines them all!
Two of the highlights on this CD are an amazing Guru Ram Das Chant and a full recitation of SoPurkh - that special, magical verse of Jap Ji which through its devotional power is said to be perfect for couples and for overcoming any difficulties in your relationship – nicely adding, this piece is accompanied by a male voice.
Musically, Sacred Kiss blends eastern and western instrumentation, creating a vast world of spaciousness. Listening to it, you’ll wonder if you’re in the West of America or in Asia. Picture Genghis Khan and John Wayne riding across the sandy desert of life, and you’ll understand why Satkirin has described Sacred Kiss as "the most enjoyable CD I’ve ever made."
