Japji is the song of the soul
- a prayer, an infusion into the celestial sound current that was channelled by Guru Nanak in his 3 day journey under the water. It invites us to clear the universal confusion of the mind, come back to the magic, wonder and bliss of the present moment available through the remembrance of the holy Naam.

It is normally recited in the early ambrosial hours (4-7am) but can be enjoyed anytime.

This recording was done in the ambrosial hours with love in Phoenix Arizona, 2011 with the birds and wind chimes. There's a few pronunciation errors, sorry!

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.
