This cover version of Singh Kaur's "crimson" was recorded in a sweet moment at Ram Das Puri (sacred Hopi lands) in New Mexico after the Kundalini Yoga Summer Solstice Celebration in 2017. The land and winds soaked in the spirit of devotion and love left behind by the gathering of souls. In a moment of inspiration she recorded it live into her laptop speakers, hence the lo-fi quality.


(adapted by Bachan)

My eyes are damp with the Nectar of the Lord.
My Soul is filled with your Love.
you tested my Heart with your Touchstone,
and Found it to be Pure.
Through the Guru, I am dyed a Deep Crimson.
This body and mind are wet with the Love of the Lord.
Nanak, the slave has been drenched in your Fragrance,
and this life of mine has been blessed.

The song of the Lord's Love is like the piercing arrow.
It has struck deep into my Heart.
Those who have felt Love's pain know how to withstand it.
The one who dies to this life while yet alive,
has achieved Liberation in his lifetime.

Oh, God, make thy slave to meet with the True Guru.
So she can cross the difficult ocean...
So we can cross the difficult ocean...
So we can cross the difficult ocean of the world.
My eyes are damp with the Nectar of the Lord...
My eyes are damp with the Nectar of the Lord...

Bachan Mexico

The sound of Bachan Kaur’s voice can make you forget what you’re doing and remember who you are.

Mysticism infuses her sound with kaleidoscopic luminescence.
Sparse dreamy electronica, organic earthy acoustics, soul stirring poetics, and the occasional boom and clack.

Mother earth and the human heart are the bread and butter of this artist’s intention and you can taste it in every song.
