Description

'Sacred Words' is a mesmerising album from Manika Kaur, a world-leading contemporary performer of sacred Sikh vocal music 'Kirtan'.

Since recording her 2013 debut album 'Bandhanaa' with Bollywood legend Sukhbir Singh, Manika Kaur has become the fastest selling contemporary Sikh solo artist in the world, placing Kirtan in the European World Music Charts for the very first time and amassing over ten million views on YouTube.

Manika Kaur's previous work has won a plethora of widespread praise from the media, musicians and collaborators alike. Songlines have lauded the "emotive melodies that beautifully articulate the poetry she sings so hauntingly", while Perceptive Travel (USA) described a "dreamy soundscape...reminiscent of what Sigur Rós might sound like if they were Punjabi women rather the Icelandic Men". The success of this album culminated in a sold-out London debut at the prestigious Union Chapel, with features on the Sikh Network, a range of BBC Radio shows, ABC Australia TV and many more high profile appearances along the way.

'Sacred Words' represents Manika Kaur's most diverse and very best work to date, featuring collaborations with Scottish folk musician James Yorkston (guitar/dulcimer) Jyotsna Srikanth (violin) and Tunde Jegede (kora). The album was picked up by producer / bassist Martin 'Youth' Glover's (Killing Joke, Verve, Kate Bush and many more) for his new imprint label, Suriya Recordings. The tracks are produced and mixed by Talvin Singh, Punjabi-Glaswegian artists TigerStyle, Oskar Vizan and Youth. The result is an album that is a genuine force to be reckoned with.
