TEAM OF MUSICIANS
SATT NAAGAR (Vocal Accompanist)
Satt Naagar began singing at an early age of 5 years with sacred hymns of Guru Nanak. At that tender age he of course didn’t know what a divine gift it was. He was then simply following the instructions of his Uncle (Gurmel Singh Munder) to learn Gurbani Keertan from him, which he did till the age of 18.
Life took a new turn and he became a Punjabi Singer post that and kept writing, composing and recording many punjabi songs. In 2016, he became greatly influenced by OSHO and got initiated into Sanyas which brought the colours of Guru Nanak’s Grace back into his singing along with many Sufi saints guiding his soul. Satt now lives in Chandigarh with Swami Visarjan in whose singing he says, the soul gets such nourishment that doesn’t allow him to go anywhere else.
