The Friday live at Five FaceBook concerts have been tremendous fun and it has been great pulling out old songs, dusting them off and sharing them along with the stories that inspired them. Here are the recordings of the last three shows. Join us next time live on the Japa FB page Fridays at 5pm MST.
June 5, 2020 – Happy Donut Day!
Japa celebrates Donut Day with a set of fun, lively originals and a rousing finale in the Donut Day theme. Why can’t men be like donuts in a donut shop?
“Fallen for You”
“One Kiss, Tommy”
“The Donut Shop”
May 29, 2020 – A set of Japa Original tunes – a couple you might’ve heard before, a couple from deep in the archives. Enjoy!
“Light on the Shore”
May 22, 2020 – Japa goes polka!
A lively set on the accordion featuring:
“Your Neck for Dinner” (a Japa original)
“The Beer Barrel Polka”
Encore: “Gypsy Polka”
The “Sat Narayan” mantra, played outside on a sunny afternoon, just me and my guitar, put to water images of scenes taken during travels through the Bay Area, greater Lake Tahoe Area, Crater Lake, Maine and Baja.
This mantra brings peace. Enjoy. Blessings. and Waheguru!
On May 4th, 2020, Japa was the featured artist on the program, “Miracle Mantra”, a half hour radio show based out of Milwaukee, WI. What a blast! Super fun. The live radio broadcast included her version of the “Adi Shakti Mantra”, the “Sat Narayan” mantra for peace, and a special accordion tribute to Guru Ram Das.
…and super fun. I had a blast. It seemed like the people watching did, too. Hits of the day included “It’s all God”, “The Hopi Prophecy”, “Barco do Paz” and a little Grateful Dead/mantra mash up, “Ek Ong Ripple”.
Super stoked for the next one, Friday, May 8 at 5pm MST. Hop on the Japa Kaur Facebook Page to catch the live action.
Due to current world conditions, live events have been suspended and gatherings have been cancelled. Ironically, due to this strange and unexpected turn of events, I’ve suddenly become busier than ever with requests for engagements.

Just finished up a week at Kundalini Yoga camp in Florida for the 3HO winter solstice sadhana celebration. Super high vibes, great food, awesome music and incredible peeps! I felt super blessed to sing play guitar during the week at classes, in the Gurdwara, and at the final morning’s sadhana. Links to the highlights:
