Sat Nam Wahe Guru stands out as a joyous celebration of the self. Multiple overlapping vocal lines are interwoven with lively percussion and harp to create this powerful healing sound chant which stays with you throughout an active day.
In ancient scriptures it is said to have the power to open the heart and develop intuition and spirit. It has three stages. Initial repetition of "Sat Nam" is the cycle of life, where in the midst of great activity you remember the true nature of who you are. Then the "Wahe Guru" is repeated which penetrates the heart center and opens intuition. The last stage is the slowly repeated "Wahe Guru" that consolidates the inner sense of dwelling within your spirit.

Singh Kaur (also known as Lorellei and Laura Drew) possessed both a keen compositional mind and a striking, crystalline voice.
Singh Kaur's musical journey was one of unique and magical magnitude. Her music reached a wide audience through the hugely popular Crimson Series albums recorded with Kim Robertson. Shortly thereafter, she joined Soundings of The Planet to produce her first Billboard-charting album, Instruments of Peace (1988), followed by What Child Is This, a Christmas album produced with Dean Evenson.
Singh Kaur was first exposed to the life of music at the age of five, listening to arias sung by her operatic grandmother. At age 14, she bought her first guitar and has been composing and arranging ever since. Her lyrical concepts can be traced to the 14 years that she spent in a yoga ashram studying ancient spiritual teachings and writing music to complement sacred texts.
Literally translated, Singh Kaur means Lion Princess, and a most appropriate name it was too. Long flowing red hair was her mane, accompanying an exuberant personality, both playful and ferocious. Yogi Bhajan, who crowned her with this name, often said that it held the key to her destiny: "Sing Singh Kaur!" As she sang, so did her soul touch the hearts of others, and in this way she bacame beloved to those who knew or heard her.
