anything by mallian vale singhs!! [akj.org] -Bhai Sukhpal Singh Ji, Satgur khotioh khare kare shabad savaranhaar. anything by bhai sukhpal singh ji on youtube.

Thanks Veer Uttam Singh for starting this thread and the links you have provided are beautiful. There is so much Rass in kirtan of Bhai Mani Singh. I listened to these Shabads many years ago and have always enjoyed Anand from them.

i'm a great fan of bhai balbir singh too. smiling smiley

for "raagi jatha" keertan, i really like bhai gurmail singh jee (amritsar), who uses simple tunes that follow the rules of raag. i'm just learning keertan, and i like the idea of playing in raag, but without the music overwhelming the shabad, i have found his keertan very easy to learn from:

[www.bhaigurmailsingh.com]
(the first shabad i ever played in sangat)


an of course jatha keertan is the best. smiling smiley

from recent samagams:

[akj.org]
(first time i heard sangat do swaas swaas simran so openly at a samagam, just amazing!

[akj.org]
(first time i heard giani gurdev singh jee, and it seems like he has some magic button he hits and all of sangat starts simran, even before he does. as though they simply can't wait to say waheguru!)

bibi manjeet kaur jee blew me away with this... i must have listened 20 times!




and of course, the indomitable bibi amarjit kaur jee:



if anyone knows where i can hear more of her keertan, PLEASE let me know!


and MANY MANY more, including some i can't post here because i know the sevadar might be reading. winking smiley

Veer Uttam Singh Ji thanks for posting Sant Mani Singh Jis recordings. I was looking for these recordings.

BHai Gurmail Singh Ji is my favorite raagi Singh along with Bhai Anoop Singh Ji. I think Bhai Gurmail currently lives in New York.

Great links!

The first time I listened to Bhai Gurmail Singh was about 20 years ago, when he came to Dixie Gurdwara Sahib. He stayed there for few months and did great Kirtan. He does wonderful Kirtan and as Bhain jee pointed out, his semi-classical style very soothing. Bahut Mithee Avaaz uhna dee.

Regarding Bhai Balbir Singh jee, I have noticed that when he sings Raag Kaanra, he really shines. It seems like this raag is his favourite.

The link of Bibi Manjinder Kaur provided by Bhain jee is excellent. I discovered it few months ago and have listened to it numerous times. Many I have spoken to claim that Bibi jee is just pretending but I say that Dhan is such pretending too. It's a delight to hear this Kirtan that is full of Josho-Kharosh.

Daas,
Kulbir Singh

Veer Uttam Singh jeeo, the second link of Bhai Mani Singh jee's Kirtan contains a Saakhi of a Gursikh (who passed away) who had an amazing spiritual jeevan. He used to do 5 Siri Sukhmani Sahibs a day plus 250 Siri Chaupai Sahibs a day. Once he did Ardaas to do 50 Siri Sukhmani Sahib paaths for Bhai Mani Singh's health and he completed these paaths in 3 days. WOW!

Could someone shed light on who this Gurmukh was?

Daas,
Kulbir Singh

I was going to start a new post on truly heavenly Kirtan, but changed my mind and will add to this thread instead. Please add Kirtan that you believe is mind blowing, pure ras and something that melts the heart.


I'll kick off by posting this very short video, it is pure Anand.

How do you tell if a shabad is in raags with the taal being played is kehrva or dadra?

Only if we are fluent in Raags we can tell which Raag is being played at a certain time. Depending on what combination of Surs are used, the Raag comes into play. The easily recognizable Raags are Bhairo, Bilaval, Bhairavee, Shivranjini, Bhopali, Malkauns, and Darbari Kanra because of their unique sounds and tunes. You just need some basic knowledge, that's all.

As for taal, its Dadra if the beats are 6, Teen Taal if the beats are 16 and Kehrva if the beats are 8. These 3 are the most common Taals. Upkaar Singh can shed more light on Taals.

Having said that, what's the need to know what Raag or Taal is playing. You eat your mangoes; why are you worrying about what trees these mangoes have come from?

Maybe, I misinterpreted the question, sorry.

Bhai Kulbir Singh jee has explained the beats well.

The simplest way to recognize a taal, is speak the bols in your head and match them along with the first line the keertanee Veer/Bhen is singing.

The hardest taals to recognize are Ek Taal, Jhap Taal, Deep Chandee.

Keharvaa, Teen Taal, Daadraa & Roopak are very common in the jatha.

To get a good taste of most of these:

Try getting Giani Gurdev Singh jee's 2+ hours rainsabaee track, from the Oct/Nov New Jersey Samagam 2009.

Filled with raags and its mostly Dasam Baani Keertan.
