Because it migrates back and forth between the notes of “the people” and “the gods”, Amrit Kaur Lohia’s music has been described as being without borders. Kaur Lohias plays the sarangi (an Indian string instrument) and sings jazz, along with a mixture of Punjabi-folk music, Indian classical music and soul. By combining jazz standards, revolutionary poetry and religious ballads from all over the world with the Indian instrument, she takes the listener along on a journey that can best be described as a meditation.
Kaur Lohias is accompanied by Pratab Singh Lohia, who plays the tabla. He has studied under Harkirat Singh Rayatt, and played throughout Great Britain, India and the USA.
