Neo-Psychedelic World Beat & Ethereal Wave band, SIMRIT, has created waves with packed theaters and concert halls, chart-topping albums, and raving fans worldwide that have powered a palpable musical movement. Transcending genres with their eclectic and eccentric blend of instruments and lineages, the SIMRIT experience is based around its lead singer – songwriter, Simrit Kaur, born in Athens, Greece and adopted by Greek Americans into South Carolina. Filling out the SIMRIT sound and experience is Salif Bamakora on the 21-string West African kora. Shannon Hayden on electric cello (that she runs through a pedalboard with wild effects) and guitar, Jared May on bass & Moog synthesizer, and Devon Ashley on drums and other percussions. Their music is known for its hypnotic, deep-pocket groove, haunting beauty, edge, and psychedelic atmosphere. It has been called exotic funk while also being likened to the epic, cinematic feels of David Lynch films.
