Sat Nam everyone! I loved making my first music video with Robin Layton. You can see from her words below that it is a soul connection that brought us together. I invite you to watch the music video for Earth Prayer that she made for me, and check out her website for other video and photo projects she has worked on.
Blessings, Snatam Kaur

In the words of Robin Layton...

I first heard Snatam’s voice when I was at a friend’s home.  I felt I had just heard an angel sing.  A few months later when my Mom was receiving chemo and radiation treatments in Seattle, I felt so desperately sad and the only thing that could soothe me was listening to Snatam.  It was during this moment that I reached out to her, to let her know what a gift she is to our world, how astounding her talent is and if I could offer her, as a fellow artist, my gift of photography.  

While my mother was in hospice, I photographed our little time together.  My mother passed in June and to honor her, I put a slide show of her last three weeks to Snatam’s song Ra Ma Da Sa.  The song expressed perfectly the feelings I had of faith and hope, and mostly my thoughts when I think of God. 

I have no words to describe the feeling I get when I hear Snatam sing.  I feel it is the song of God  singing directly to me, through me.  It takes me to a place I didn’t know existed.

We were able to work together as fellow artists and I am so honored to have had the privilege to share my gifts to honor Snatam talent.  

I am truly grateful for the moments I’ve shared with Snatam photographing and making our first music video together.  

Thank you Snatam; thank you for being in my life and for sharing your amazing gifts with me and the world.

only someone as gifted as Snatum could have put this video beautiful and resonant. Absolutely lovely!
Congratulations on your new video. I love it. It's beautiful, strong, and heartfelt, just like you. I could feel the emotion transending.
Sat Nam, **(-_-)**
I didn't know you had a blog. It's a similar mission of peace we share. Many blessings.
Similar experience and story. I so know what you mean about listening to Snatum the first time and how she continues to encourage and empower me as I continue through life. Truly she is a gift, and so is your video! Thank you both so much.
