Continuing to bend genre and break new ground as a unique leader in the modern renaissance wave of New Age music, Sangeeta Kaur (Teresa Mai), is embarking on a banner year in her multifaceted career and she is today releasing her new transcending New Age album COMPASSION.
COMPASSION is Sangeeta’s fourth New Age/Classical Crossover album, presenting fresh collaborations with the Hungarian Studio Orchestra, Hungarian Studio Choir, and a Los Angeles-based choir, The Sterling Ensemble, which lift her heavenly soprano vocals to angelic levels. Renowned composer and producer, Nicolas Neidhardt, features again on piano and keyboard, while Duy Tran and Danaë Vlasse gift their talents in choral writing. Enhanced by the sonic simplicity of crystal singing bowls, improvised by Sangeeta Kaur and GRAMMY®-winning soprano Hila Plitman.
Cinematic and hypnotic in sound and scope, Sangeeta alchemizes her Vietnamese American roots, Classical Crossover operatic expertise and authentic connection with Sacred Mantra Music to create a new sonic and vocal experience.
She is the first artist to compose a “Mantra Opera”, that work known as “Niguma: A Mantra Project” and its sequel “Ascension” opened to rave reviews and was the first work of its kind to congruently combine Ancient Sacred Wisdom of the East with a cinematic visual choreography on the stage that built a bridge between the worlds of sacred chant and classical opera and modern dance.
With a great passion for performance, Sangeeta brings an award-winning pedigree aligning classical opera training, Kundalini yoga and a deep personal Tibetan Buddhist practice. Her unique style and commitment to honoring her dharma as a Voice for the sacred path, has taken Sangeeta all over the globe. From world-renown venues in the United States such as the Broad Stage and Segerstrom Center for the Arts to Sydney Opera House in Australia, Sangeeta delivers a presence and live experience that is internationally compelling.
Compassion provides a vocal healing balm for our souls, expressed deeply & emotionally from Sangeeta’s loving heart.
