@dalsingh101 This is the Afghani Rabaab correct?

I recently learned that this type of Rabaab isn't used in Gurmat Sangeet/Raag Kirtan. I believe the Seni Rabaab and more rarely the Sur Rabaab is used:

 

 

Thanks for the share. I have zero knowledge of these things.

Is this the more Sikh style?

I don't either - there's so much about Raag Kirtan that I don't know, it's a much bigger topic than I thought.

Also I should have worded my eariler comment properly....the Afghani Rabaab wasn't traditionally used for Kirtan although today it is. Seems to be the most popular.

From what I was told, it's rare to come across anyone who's learnt the two types of Rabaab I mentioned. Maybe with the exception of Namdharis - thank God they have preserved this Vidya.

In the video, I think it's still the Afghani one. It's has a very distinct 'Arabi' sound to it (in Kirtan it doesn't sound as obvious). My ears aren't trained but if you listen carefully, I think, I think it sounds the same as this...notice the Arabi vibe it has:

There is a rabab of Guru Gobind Singh Ji's still preserved at Anandpur Sahib. It is more towards the style of the one played by Somjit Dasgupta in the video above.

The above rabab of Guru Sahib was used by an australian Sikh (convert) to reproduce a replica.
