Event Details

As part of the stunning new Sikh exhibition taking place in London this summer - 'The Golden Temple of Amritsar: Reflections of the Past' - we are holding a limited number of special Sunday Symposiums on a variety of topics connected with the Golden Temple.

There are five symposium days in all, each on a different theme. These engaging talks by international speakers will provide insights into the history, art, architecture, martial culture and musical traditions of the Sikhs' most iconic shrine.

Theme of the Day: Music

The day will include the following 2 talks (plus free lunch):

Old Broken Strings

Dr. Navtej Purewal is a lecturer at the University of Manchester specialising in gender issues and social inequality in South Asia and the Partition of Punjab.

‘Unstruck Melody’

In-conversation with one of the last great rababis who sang at the Golden Temple, concluding with a finale performance.

Bhai Ghulam Muhammad Chand is an accomplished exponent of the rababi tradition who was born in Amritsar but is now based in Lahore, Pakistan.
