The trio was present at the Premiere ceremony of the 65th Annual Grammy Awards where Gurujas Kaur Khalsa, one of the members of the White Sun band, received the award for Best New Age Album in the New Age, Ambient or Chant Category for the album ‘Mystic Mirror’. The album contains three shabads (prayers) from the Guru Granth Sahib.

Two of the hymns are from Guru Nanak’s Jap while the other is of Guru Arjan Dev. The two shabads are “Akhan jor chupai nahi jor” and “Pawan guru paani pita.” The third is from the Guru Granth Saheb composed by Guru Arjan Dev and is called “Naam Niranjan neer narayan.”

The band wrote on Twitter, “We just won a GRAMMY for our album “Mystic Mirror” in the New Age, Ambient or Chant Category. We want to thank the @recordingacademy not only for the beautiful awards ceremony but also for all the amazing work they do on behalf of music creators.”
