Last Of The Rababis

Recommended Posts

The rababi tradition within Sikhism is associated with the first rababi, Bhai Mardana, a Muslim musician who had been a virtual lifelong companion of Guru Nanak throughout his epic travels. Remarkably, the tradition actually survived within the Golden Temple until relatively recently, and visitors to the new Golden Temple exhibition in London will be able to hear one of the last rebabis perform....

Does anyone have a recording of the last of the rebabis? It would be interesting to hear the kirtan.

Bhai Ghulam Chand will be performing kirtan in London in September. Check out www.gt1588.com and go to events!

Nothing beats listening to Kirtan from a hukka smoking Muslim! I wonder if he still does a kurli after doing Kirtan so as to clean his mouth after having to recite 'Kafir' scriptures? One hopes he does Ishnaan at least.

Enjoy the beauty of what he does and stop slandering him for his personal behaviour regarding hookah. Do you also check all the Sikh granthis personal lifestyles before listening to their kirtan at your local gurdwara?

Where did u hear about the kafir cleansing thing

if he smokes then is he really enjoying the kirtan he sings? think about it.

My father saw a rababi from Bhai Mardanas kul being ejected from Gurdwara Dehra Sahib for having tobacco in his pocket.

Would Guru Nanak Dev Ji have ever let Bhai Mardana smoke?

This Kul thing is the biggest scam going. Any Tom, Dick and Abdul makes out that they are of the kul of some Gursikh and Sikhs go ga ga over him. The biggest scam of recent years was that descendent of Rai Kalha who takes the Ganga Sagar on tours to fleece Sikhs of their hard earned money. I have seen women place gold rings and bangan as charawa to the Ganga Sagar. Does anyone seriously believe that Guru Gobind Singh gifted the Ganga Sagar as a means of fleecing his Sikhs?

It is not about Kul, it is about Kala, the arts. At least give some respect to someone who has put a lifetimes effort into an art propogated by the Gurus, and not wasted his life slandering others on forums.

HAHA true. that descendant of Rai Kalha carrying the Ganga Sagar is the biggest scam artist today. Why the hell do Sikhs give him hard earned money when that same money can be used for better purposes such as Gurmat Parchar.

Look up the word slander before you post your sanctimonious claptrap. It's not propogation of the art but a way to make money. If they cannot sing Gurbani yet live a life contrary to it then what does that make them?
