These beautiful recordings was made during some North American shows on her ongoing Celebrate Peace Tour. And where many activists only talk about peace, Snatam actually embodies and emanates it. She may not have the most wonderful female voice ever heard, but she sings from a pure Heart, bound to touch the listener and open his/hers heart too.
She is not affraid to take risks on stage, and here she is accompanied by a small but very accomplished band. With GuruGanesha Singh Kalsa on guitar, who certainly looks like a guru with turban and long white beard and plays some delighful fills and solos. The brilliant tablaplayer Manish Vyas, who has recorded with the likes of Deva Premal and Prem Joshua, besides releasing a string of fine soloalbums. And the very discreet keyboardplayer Ram Dass Singh Kalsa, who also plays some meditative clarinet-soloes, just as Snatam occasionally picks up her violin.
We get some of her most beloved tracks, ending with her 'hit', her hauntingly beautiful melody to the traditional Sikh-lyrics "Aad Guray Nameh". Vyas and GuruGanesha also contributing a song each.
The music is free and flowing, very well-played. The album can be listened to just for musical pleasure, but also for meditation, healing, relaxation, yoga etc..
