combination of an english song that came to me to inspire a friend when she could not feel or see her inner beauty and the 20th stanza of Japji, the morning prayer of the Sikhs. It's like a reset button for when we've lost our way, t remember all is forgiven, all is love, all is perfection in the eyes of the Beloved - it's a love song from the God to us.


bharee-ai hath pair tan dayh. paanee Dhotai utras khayh.
Hands, feet and the body that are polluted, With water the dirt can be washed away.
moot paleetee kaparh ho-ay. day saaboon la-ee-ai oh Dho-ay.
Clothes that are soiled and stained by urine, With soap they can be washed clean.
bharee-ai mat paapaa kai sang. oh Dhopai naavai kai rang.
When the mind is weighed down with burdens of duality, That can be cleansed by the Color of the Naam.
punnee paapee aakhan naahi. kar kar karnaa likh lai jaahu.
Virtue and vice do not come by mere words; actions repeated, again and again, are engraved on the soul.
aapay beej aapay hee khaahu. naanak hukmee aavhu jaahu. 20
What you sow is what you shall experience. O Nanak, by God's Command, we die and take birth.

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.
