Voice of An Angel
During the '70s Hari Singh Bird taught Kundalini Yoga and meditation classes in several Colorado locations including state and federal prisons. At this time Singh Kaur Khalsa was a resident at the Denver House of Guru Ram Das. She accompanied Hari Singh to these classes on numerous occasions. Singh Kaur possesses a crystal-clear, angelic voice and presence. She led the meditation portion of classes with her voice and her guitar.
"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.
Ardas was known as the prayer that goes beyond all prayers. It has the power of all prayers in one.
The "Big Source" For Singh Kaur, music, was about something larger than individual accomplishment or creativity. Her lyric creations are love songs from a woman to her lover; from a mother to her children; and from a spiritual seeker to the source of her inspiration." -- Source.
