The Dub Simran Experience is the debut album from London based artst Dubtician.
A spiritual album of Sikh meditative chant (Simran) set to a dub reggae backdrop. Recorded with his live band and heralding a new genre in sikh spiritual music, combining harmonium and tablas with organs and bass guitar.
Dub music originated in Jamaica when popular songs were remixed to bring the drums and bass to the foreground. Other instruments were then faded in and out at will by the mix engineer whilst adding echoes and other effects to enhance the sound, thus creating a new style of music.
Simran is devotional meditation commonly achieved by repetition of a word or phrase taken from enlightening scriptures.
Sikhi is a distinct contemporary faith, whereby the Realisation of God is attained through individual devotion and selfless service.
All three components are wonderfully brought together in this Empowering and Uplifting CD produced by Dubtician & Kuljit Bhamra.
