Biography

Sada Sat Kaur’s name represents within yogic circles the alchemy of everyday custom turned into high art. For over 30 years she has toured the world, chanting mantras and singing kirtan in ashrams, concert halls, schools, public parks.

In India, audiences have been known to flock to her as if she were the Beatles. “We play to crowds of 200,000 people,” she says. “They want to touch you and get your autograph. You go to these parks when it’s a Sikh holiday, and they hear that these American Sikhs are going to sing, and you can’t even see the end of the sea of people.”

As the decades have passed, that sea of people has never managed to hoist Sada Sat Kaur toward a recording studio-until now. “The feeling inside myself was that this was all going to happen when it was supposed to happen,” she says, “and it did.”

In 2000 she was hanging around the watermelon tent at a Summer Solstice retreat in the mountains of New Mexico when she fell into an exchange with musician and producer Jeremy Toback. “We just got to talking and Jeremy and I were like, ‘Let’s do an album.” The result of that chance encounter is Angels’ Waltz, a debut disc from a 56-year-old homeopath and yoga instructor who also just happens to be a master of a musical and spiritual form.
