Welcome to the Sirgun Kaur singer songwriter website pages!
Sirgun is an Arizona-based sacred songstress and Kundalini Yoga instructor. She was raised moving back and forth between Los Angeles and Southern France, and spent her adult life attending Brown University in Rhode Island, living in Connecticut and is currently based in Arizona. In the midst of constant change, one element has remained consistent in Sirgun’s life: Music.
From collecting nursery rhymes as an infant, sharing her adolescent woes with a sympathetic piano, to touring the United States as a singer-songwriter in her early 20s, it is no surprise that Sirgun was destined to pursue a calling of music.
Urged by her mother to not lose her authentic voice by way of vocal lessons, Sirgun developed her own sound by listening to her favorite artists, turning poems into songs, recording her music on a karaoke machine, and taking jazz piano lessons while studying at Brown University - the latter of which was encouraged by her father. Her piano instructor at Brown helped Sirgun learn new ways to create her own songs.
It was not until she discovered Kundalini Yoga, chanting, and mantra, however, that she understood the transformative and healing potential of music. Sirgun believes that our bodies and minds are both malleable and miraculous. Her music is designed to put listeners in a state where healing can naturally take place. By listening and chanting along, the nervous system is soothed, the mind becomes less chaotic, and the world seems a little less overwhelming. It was a gradual process of observing and listening to other chant artists, mixed with her own songwriting experiences that lead to this spiritual path. Since then, Sirgun has released five albums of sacred chants: -8, Reclaim Your Happiness, Dayaal, The Cosmic Gift, and The Music Within.
As a mother of two, Sirgun initially thought raising children would be a barrier to her music, but has found the opposite to be true. She recorded her debut solo album, The Cosmic Gift, soon after her first son was born. In fact, he was nursing while Sirgun recorded the majority of the vocals. Motherhood has enabled Sirgun to become more disciplined, diligent, and appreciative of her ability to make music. Sirgun’s music has been used by various healers in both spiritual- and medical-based practices. Renowned Kundalini Yoga teacher Gurmukh frequently plays “Amen” in her classes. “Bliss” was used across the globe during the breaks for day-long meditation event, White Tantric Yoga. Dr. Joel Kahn, a prominent holistic heart surgeon in Michigan, recommends her music to his patients. Sirgun has performed in Europe and across the United States, leading conscious festivals such as Bhakti fest.
Throughout her musical journey, Sirgun has lovingly realized that she has no control over who listens to her music and how it is interpreted. She strongly feels that the intention she puts into her music translates accurately to each recipient, regardless of where it ultimately ends up.
Sirgun currently resides in a yoga community in Phoenix, Arizona with her husband and two children.
