Jaap Saahib, a prayer with a beat, was recorded with the concept that this powerful prayer, which Guru Gobind Singh composed for courage and strength, would lend itself nicely to a rock music style. With a little experimenting, Antion Vikram Singh and his producer Liv Singh came up with this high energy composition. Then Sat-Kartar was asked to sing as well, adding the final touch to this classic recording. The original analog album has been mastered to digital with all the original live recorded sounds.

I am very much enjoying this CD. It is very sweet and deep. I have Sikh friends here who I think will help me get the pronunciation right.
Former rock-star Antion Vikram Singh left Eric Burdon and the Animals nearly 30 years ago to pursue a spiritual practice that led him to study and then perform sacred Indian music in Sikh temples throughout the world. He was introduced, by chance, to Hawaiian music and has now succeeded in working it into his eclectic repertoire. And somewhere, is a vision that brings it all together in a sound as uniquely his own as the inner yearnings that guide him. Before he joined the Animals, the London-born guitarist played with entertainers like Rod Stewart and Dusty Springfield. Jimi Hendrix, who once named him as one of his three favorite musicians, alongside idols Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck.
