  1. waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh Question for the Raagi Gyanis and Ustaads: I am trying to differentiate between the main raag keertan styles. In the big Gurdwaras, the tanti saaj Raagis sing in a sing-a-long fashion (repeating melody, rapid progress through the shabad). However there is another rarely heard style where the singing is very different: substantive vibrato/voice echo, slow progress- once verse may be chewed upon for a very long time with great emotion and improvisation. Listen to the following two clips which demonstrate this (Man Japoh Ram Gopal - 1 in 'sing-a-long' style and 2 in the 'slow tempo' style). -Are there any names to describe these two types of vocalisation? Is it correct to say that the vocalisation of the latter is a genre such as Dhrupad? -In simple terms what is the difference between the two? Do they have the same core basis? -Can all ustaads teach the second type? Sample 1-Raag Kanra- Man Japo Ram Gopal-Prof Surinder Singh.mp3 Sample 2-Raag Kanra- Man Japo Ram Gopal-Ustad Harbhajan Singh, Balwant Singh Namdhari..mp3
  2. 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).
  3. 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
  4. 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

  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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.

  12. WJKKWJKF I was wondering, some Asa Ki Vaar recitations have the second part sung in a different raag (not asa), is it raag bhairavi, or some other raag? The tunes sound interesting so I am wanting to get a grasp of which raag is commonly used in Asa Ki Vaar (apart from Asa). WJKKWJKF

  16. Sat Siri Akaal ji veere, I just have an urgent question. Can you please tell me which Kirtan instruments were used before the british "Vaaja/Baaja" came? I mean what kind of instruments Guru jis played with , bhai mardana etc.. I really want to learn - I have this strong feeling and this is my only chance because my parents are recently in india and I hope I can beg to them that they can buy me a instrument.. Because I dont kno where to buy.. I just saw a video on youtube which instrument is this?? Sarangi , Tanti Saaj? I dont know the real diffence please tell me.. I really want to learn it.. because I can identify myself with these vibes and tunes... please!! I love these deep dark sounding string instruments combined with guru jis bani it is such a BLISS! I dont know how to explain . I like these deep dark tunes.. and not these happy jarring tunes/sounds. Here is another example , maybe this can explain more: thank you for helping me. And btw: if you ask why I dont go to a local gurudwara : its simple, I live in germany we have no gurudwara near here... I know it will be difficult to learn on myself etc... but what else I can do ? I have no choice and I really want to ... These tunes just fullify my a place in my heart.. I feel I am lacking something and this is the solution...
