Mardana is a spiritual music band from Germany which emerged from the known formation Khalsa Jetha. With Mardana, the three artists Anna Japa Bhakti Rose (Harmonium, Guitar, Vocals), Guru Surya Singh (Tabla, Percussions, Vocals) and Gurbasant Singh (Guitars, Vocals) have created a new musical project in which they enrobe shabads, spiritual songs and Kundalini Yoga Mantras in a virtuosic musical vestment, and that with great variety. Until 2019, Satkaram Kaur was part of the formation as a key founding member.
The special attention of the trio lies in the multifold vocal settings, enhancing the character as a band, and
finding unique expression in the choirs of many of their pieces. Mardana has a fantastic groove: capturing beats and
invigorating rhythms are their speciality, yet as important as calm pieces and soothing ballads or an etheric chant which
invites you to search for infinity...
Every once a while, Mardana invite other guest musicians for their performances and musical productions, for example
Gurudass Kaur Khalsa, on whose newer albums the three have contributed a
large part of the music and arrangements. Currently, Mardana is working on their new album of which some pieces will
already be perfomed live.
