  1. Gurfateh Ji It has come to light that Maninder Singh (sri nagar vale) who is known for preferring singing geets to shabads has demanded over £3100 plus business class tickets to come to the UK for a programme in Leicester. Since when did Ragis become so commercialised? I am so disappointed by hearing this news as all I hear is that Ragis want so much money. Where has the love for Gurbani gone? I accept that this this is their livelihood but surely demanding so much money is just greed. If he wants to become a pop star then he should give up kirtan.
  2. WJKK WJKF The other week I came across a singing reality programme 'Gavo Sachi Bani' on PTC Channel. I love listening to Kirtan, so I enjoyed watching it and then it hit me. It's a kirtan competition!!! Are our gursikhs doing Kirtan for the wrong reasons? Ego? Name? Status? I understand competitions/reality programmes may be used as a way to bring in the youth. There's a fine line.... But surely if we focus on educating humanity of the meaning and understanding of each shabad, wouldn't that itself bring in Sikh youth? As a person, I am very open minded and liberal. As a Sikh, I don't do our daily nitnem, a bit of naam simran here and there. I do try to focus on being humane... I have joined this forum, like yourselves to learn and educate myself. Maybe Satguru ji will bless me with the thirst of doing paath everyday... Before I get carried away typing every thought... Back to topic, are we using Shabad Kirtan not as a method to unite us with akaal purak but making us slaves to our vices?! Forgive me if I have said anything wrong. I'm here to learn. Students make mistakes.
  3. WJKK WJKF, can anyone tell me the tune of this shabad on the harmonium . The shabad starts at 2:47
  4. Can someone list a kirtani(s) who do kirtan in raag. I know the famous ones like bhai balbir singh ji and bhai avtar singh ji. Actually I need something that I can practice my tabla to ( so someone who doesnt speed their rhythm in their kirtan).
  5. For a long time I been wanting to do kirtan. I really like and listen to a lot of Raag kirtan. I also like purtan reets from the 1980s or older( reets like the ones Bhai Jaswant Singh Hazzori Ragi Sings) becuase its easy to sing and has some raag involved. I looked around the internet and everything I saw of Raag was very hard for me( I don't know too much harmonium). Also all the reets I found, are the filmy tune ones that I'm not a big fan of. So I'm just asking if anyone knows any books or any other resources for easy Raag shabads and notations. Thanks WJKK WJKF
  6. PLEASE ATTEND AND LET OTHERS KNOW JI.

  11. I'm looking into learning how to play raag and obviously I'll need an instrument to do so. What instruments would you recommend for a beginner at kirtan? I'm leaning towards the sitar but im not sure. I'd like to hear your input. Bhagat

  15. Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh ji So I have a rather simple question about Sri Kirtan Sohila Sahib ji. My question is, does the phaat have to be recited before 12 at night even if the individual would be awake after that time, and will not be asleep right after reciting the phaat? Does the phaat have to be recited before everytime the individual goes to sleep? I for sure recite it before sleeping regardless of the time. Thanks for reading (:
  16. In Which Raag is this shabad being performed in? The shabad itself is in Raag Soohee but is it being performed in Raag Basant? And does anyone have notation for this shabad on harmonium? I really want to learn Raag Kirtan. I have been doing kirtan in tunes I made myself for about a year now and I only recently realized the importance of raag. I found the four volumes Gurmat Sangeet Sagar on discoversikhism.com and I'm trying my best to learn from there myself. Currently I am making an effort to learn Basant and Bahar for the spring season from Sangrand of Magh to Holla Mohalla. If anyone could give me another great source for learning gurmat sangeet that would be great.
  17. I was wondering if any of you guys know any ragi that does kirtan in tunes but still is in Raag. The reason is that I like raag kirtan and want Gurbani to be sung in the way it was meant to ,but I also want to make it easy so people can sing along. So I was thinking why not combine the two. Please if you know any ragi jatha that does this kinda of Kirtan please post it. Thanks
  18. great kirtan by bhai kulwant singh ji
  19. When I practice tabla, I like to practice with some kirtan in the background, because it gives me a feel of how it is to accompany someone on tabla. I was looking for some ragis who, don't speed in kirtan for purpose and do kirtan in either raag or simple( like Bhai Harjinder Singh). Thanks
  20. In Memory of Shahibzadey Shaheedi, Naam Simran Smagam is happening at Darbar Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Walsall, West-Midlands. Sangat Ji, We are fast approaching the 'festive season' again this year, but what does this time of the year really mean for Sikhs? This is the time of the year that one of the biggest sacrifices in history was given by our father Dhan Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj. In the month of Poh Maharaj sacrificed his four sons, his mother and countless Sikhs in the name of dharam. This was the fulfilment of a promise Guru Gobind Singh Ji made in 1699 when he, as Guru, knelt down in front of the Panj Pyaare and begged them for the gift of Amrit. The Panj asked Guru Sahib what he will give to receive this Amrit and Maharaj said they will sacrifice their entire family to get this divine gift. In memory of this Baljit Singh will be doing a daily katha over 13 Days telling the full story. This is part of the Naam Simran Smagam being held at the Gurdwara. Full details are below please be sure to attend! 19th December to 31st December. Daily smagam program: morning Simran 5am-6am & evening simran 7am-8pm 13 Larivaar Shaheedi Katha 8pm-8.30pm Darbar Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Rollingmill Street, Walsall, WS2 9EQ Maharaj has given and today continues to give so much for us, this time of year is a perfect time for us all to reflect on what we have really sacrificed to Maharaj. Please make effort to attend and share with others, it is so important that we all know about this chapter in our history!
  21. First Time Ever, Kirtan performed on the Great Wall of China, Beijing on Saturday 28th November 2015. By Bhai Gagandeep Singh ( Sri Ganga Nagar Wale) & Jatha with China Sangat with Blessings of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Video by Satbir Singh Thakral
  22. Does anyone know any raag kirtanies who have shabads that are independant ( meaning that not put all together into a Youtube Video or Soundcloud Track). Thanks WJKK WJKF
  23. I was wondering if any of u guys knows a ragi who does kirtan in tunes and at the same time in Raag (Combine both). The reason I want to know is because I like raag kirtan as it was the way the Gurus wanted us to sing Gurbani in. At the same time I want the sangat who is listening to the kirtan to be able to sing along with the shabad. So i wanted an example of a Ragi who does that. Please list the ragi name if u know one. Thanks.
  24. Anyone knows a kirtan artist who do good kirtan ,pronouncing gurbani correctly and his kirtan is melodious to listen? Mainly Nitnem banis kirtan. Also kirtan style similar to raagi's doing kirtan in Gurudwara Sahib's.
