Description

One of the world's leading interpreters of sacred Sikh Kirtan music, Manika Kaur releases 2021 album 'EK' on vinyl.

The album artwork for 'EK' has been created and designed by The Singh Twins (MBE): internationally renowned British artists whose award-winning work explores critical issues of social, political and cultural debate and re-defines narrow Eurocentric perceptions of art heritage and identity. The tranquil and mesmerising songs on 'EK' will accelerate and strengthen Manika Kaur's evolution into a public figure, known not only for the unique and captivating music she creates but also for the life-changing opportunities generated when people engage with it.

The music on 'EK' (meaning 'Oneness') remains true to the venerated traditions of Kirtan. It features some of the rarest instruments in the world, performed by the best (and some of the only) remaining players. Every song on the album leads with one of these different and specific instruments accompanying Manika Kaur's vocal to showcase each item and enhance the overall essence of the work. The music's traditional elements are combined with modern sounds created by some of London's most renowned music producers. This precarious balance has been handled with great care to ensure that neither factor outweighs the other - the result is a unique piece of art, as hypnotic as it is mesmerising.
