Gurunam Singh Khalsa (don't mistake him for Gurunam Jospeh Michael Levry, the Numerology and Kaballah teacher) shows through his music his devotion for uplifting sounds, which he has composed and perfected in many hours sitting and practising in the Sikh Temple in Espanola, USA.
At age 22, he first got to know the teachings of Yogi Bhajan, Kundalini Yoga and Sikh Dharma. From that time on, he spent his time deepening his meditation experience and combining it with his music. His soft, deep voice may remind you of Krishna Dass or James Taylor. His compositions, evolving from his yogic practice, are both powerful and humble AND very enticing to sing along.
His music is a beautiful blend of different traditions and styles of music; Gospel, Folk, Country, classical Indian Raag and Sikh music to name just a few. Gurunam himself says about his music: "The music does all the work itself. The power of the mantras. I just get out of the way and then it's my blessing, like everyone else who comes to a kirtan, just to be there, to be part of that energy... to sing."
Pritam Singh, former employee at Sat Nam Europe, still enjoys the memory of a little story with Gurunam Singh: "It was the Winter Solstice Celebration in 2004. I was totally exhausted after doing kitchen seva and I was looking for a quiet place to relax... and I found myself sitting next to Gurunam. When he recognised my exhaustion, he invited me to sit back and close my eyes and the he sang Silent Moonlight Meditation and two other songs of his: those 15 minutes were more relaxing than a good nights sleep. This beautifully intimate experience of the power of Gurunams voice & music will stay with me forever!"
Gurunam is regularly teaching workshops and giving concerts in many countries around the world. He has also been several times at the Kundalini Yoga Festival Oberlethe in Germany.
Change by Gurunam Singh is full of the rich, and soulful tones he is known for. For him, this album sees the fruition of a dream, collaborating with producer Thomas Barquee once again added his magical touch to this music.
This CD features two classical Kundalini Yoga Mantras: Adi Shakti and Gobinde Mukande, each sung in a length of 31 minutes which is considered an ideal meditation time for transformation and for experience deeper layers of the self.
