About this Event
SIMRIT LIVE in Amsterdam!
A concert experience unlike anything out there...more than a concert, it's a transporting experience!
“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. The first time I saw her live I thought – wow she’s kind of punk rock. I don’t know why I thought that, but that’s the element that drew me to explore her music. 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
THE SIMRIT EXPERIENCE
Some artists can bring true commitment to age-old meditations, urging everyone from pop stars to theater audiences to fall in love with the words of ancient sages. Some artists have a presence that both engages and soothes, an ear that can hear the resonances that bridge continents and souls.
Vocalist and songwriter Simrit, born in Athens, Greece, adopted and raised in the American South, is one of these artists. Her music and artistry, which have attracted fans such as Steven Tyler of Aerosmith and Belinda Carlisle of the Go-Go's, is known for it's depth, haunting beauty, edge, and psychedelic atmosphere.
It won't take very long after the music begins for you to realize that this isn't your average concert. From the transcendent sounds, the hypnotic groove, world-class musicians, and Simrit's mesmerizing VOICE...Get ready for lift off!

Neo-Psychedelic World music band 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, The Grateful Dead, Mazzy Star, Led Zeppelin, among many others, have proven deeply influential as Simrit has unlocked her own unique sound.
Decades of study and experimentation with Kundalini yoga deepened Simrit’s relationship with the quantum technology of Naad (nod) yoga (the ancient science of articulating specific sounds using the power of the navel and the precision of the tip of the tongue hitting different meridian points on the roof of the mouth, impacting the brain’s neural pathways and chemicals, eliciting altered states of reality); the effects of which influence her music. 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 hypnotic, deep-pocket groove, haunting beauty, edge, and mind-bending atmosphere. It has been called exotic funk while also being likened to the epic, cinematic feels of David Lynch films.
