Kabir was a 15th-century Indian poet in the Sufi tradition. The Bijak is the best known compilation of Kabir's poetry, and holy scripture for followers of the Kabirpanthi religion. It is one of the earliest major texts in modern Hindi.
Kabir rejected false dichotomies—between Hindu and Muslim, Brahmin and heathen, body and mind. In the spirit of my namesake, Sun Kin rejects prescribed doctrines of rock, folk, and dance music.

"Their sound is the beautiful mix of many cultures...Sun Kin is here to reject false dichotomies, something we all need to remember in times like these." - Audiofuzz
Who can I tell?
Who will believe it?
When a bee touches a flower, he dies.
In the middle of the sky, temple blooms up.
Who can you tell?
Who will believe you?
They'll take any measure to kill you.
How can you tell who to follow, baby,
Will they be wearing a raincoat?
Who have you been listening to lately?
I don't know exactly what to swallow.
