The long awaited SIMRIT Tour is headed your way! Come experience this mind-elevating, soul-transporting sonic force. We are going to get down, and lift up!
SIMRIT is creating waves with packed theaters and concert halls, chart-topping albums, and raving fans world-wide, powering a palpable musical movement. Transcending genres with their eclectic and eccentric blend of instruments and lineages, the SIMRIT experience is based around lead singer-songwriter, Simrit Kaur, born in Athens, Greece and adopted by Greek Americans into South Carolina. Traditional Greek music, Roots Reggae, Motown among many others, have proven deeply influential as Simrit has unlocked her own unique sound. Filling out the SIMRIT sound and experience is Salif Bamakora on the 21-string West African kora, Shannon Hayden on electric cello (which she runs through a pedal board with wild effects) and guitar, Jared May on bass & Moog synthesizer and Devon Ashley on drums and other percussion. SIMRIT’s music is known for its healing effect; hypnotic, deep-pocket groove, haunting beauty, edge, and mind-bending atmosphere.
“Everyone in SIMRIT is a master of their craft…Even more critical than individual skill is the fact that their collective chemistry…Their whole is substantially greater than the sum of its parts.” -OZ FRITZ (Grammy Award Winning Sound Engineer)
“Imagine that the Aurora Borealis could sing: that’s Simrit’s voice. Timeless, Strong, and Ethereal as a whale’s song…” -LA YOGA
“For Simrit, singing is not a performance, it is a sacred worship of the Divine. Her voice, her music, and her teaching, reflect this devotion which seems to come from her so effortlessly. This devotion is a gift, a talent beyond any, that will lead thousands into the lightness of being and awareness that is so vital to humanity in this day and age.” -SNATAM KAUR
“First of all, I’m such a fan of Simrit. Her sense of melody, her energy, and her musicality set her apart. Simrit, to me, is the voice of this new day and age.” -BELINDA CARLISLE (Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame, The Go-Go’s
