"Your concerts are very welcoming. I always feel like you are happy to see each one of us. And of course the music is joyful, earthy, vibrant."
Answer the Muse is a group of dedicated professional musical artists with relatable, inclusive, universally themed mainly original material that dovetails beautifully with going right into Kundalini mantra Kriya/ chanting. They combine performance art. The most striking element is their authenticity. Really powerful stuff.
Dr. Hari Kirin Kaur Khalsa
Their songs soothe ears abused by too much angry shouting and calm nerves frayed by life's mendacity. They walk it like they talk it. Sincerely. They sing well, play their instruments well and play together well, frequently using acoustic sounds. Support independent music by giving a few of your hard-earned shekels to Answer the Muse! They're doing their thing the right way.
