Kaur Voices Talk Show
By SikhNet & Jasvir Kaur Rababan
There is much that often gets labeled as taboo or falls into the hush hush culture within the Punjabi and Sikh Community. Kaur Voices Talk Show is a space to unveil these topics and discuss them openly in a non-offensive manner where we can encourage healthy dialogue. Kaur Voices Talk Show is a space inspired by the Kaur Voices movement to give every voice a choice. Talking is necessary and on the Kaur Voices Talk Show we hope to cultivate a non-judgmental, open space which is welcoming to all in order to provide support to those that need it and encouragement to share your stories for those that are able. We want to hear your story, your story is valuable and has the power to inspire others because its real, this is your space to share your story. Jasvir Kaur Rababan is the CEO of Raj Academy and co-founder of KaurVoices.org, a platform for the empowerment of Sikh women. SikhNet has teamed up with her to create a regular talk show available as a full podcast as well as excerpt videos posted to SikhNet's youtube and facebook channels. Jasvir Kaur Rababan MBE, is an educator, activist, musician, film maker, music therapist and the founder of the Kaur Voices Movement. Her own journey of abuse and trauma led her on a path of self discovery, where she discovered the techniques of Guru Nanak’s healing music and found her one true love, her Rabab. Jasvir has been actively engaged in the field of Sikh Music revival and education with Raj Academy for more than 17 years, completing her B.Mus and MA in Sikh Music Therapy in England. Jasvir has used this technology of Guru Nanak to heal her own wounds and hopes to share these techniques with others who need emotional support through her work at Kaur Voices. Kaur Voices is a space for all voices, all people and all stories, it is a space inspired by Guru Nanak’s message of Oneness and that is what Jasvir hopes to achieve, a sangat of love, support and oneness.
