SAT SANG JATHA
Sat Sang Jatha is a Indian Classical kirtan group that was formed in the summer of 2006. The group consists of Baltej Singh Dhillon on harmonium and vocals, Onkar Dhillon on guitar and vocals, and Suminder Singh on the tabla. Sat Sang Jatha has come a long way and is now one of the most esteemed kirtan jathas in North America. They have mastered a sound like no other combining the harmonium with a westernized acoustic guitar sound to create a fusion of sorts that allows you to truly transcend and connect to the sound current.
