Simrit - Live on Maui

Sunday, Mar 22 2020, 7:00 PM

Castle Theater

Neo-psychedelic world beat & ethereal band Simrit is creating waves with packed theaters and concert halls, chart-topping albums, and raving fans worldwide, 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, who was born in Athens and adopted by Greek Americans in South Carolina. 
 
Roots reggae, the Grateful Dead, Mazzy Star, and 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 guitar and electric cello (which she runs through a pedal board with wild effects), 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 feel of David Lynch and Quentin Tarantino films.
 
This will be the first time she will be performing on Maui with her full band.
