There is a very special performance in town that I wanted to let you know about. It’s been a spiritually uplifting experience for me. Please do try to attend and pass on this announcement to others that may be interested.

Come experience a unique opportunity to listen to this Living Treasure performing extremely rare classical Kirtan using such instruments as the Taus, a string instrument used by Guru Gobind Singh. Bhai Avtar Singh is the 11th generation singer of an illustrious family of Ragis that have been performing Kirtan since the time of the third Sikh Guru, Guru Amardas (1479-1574). His repertoire of compositions has the stamp of the style and structure of the singing practiced during the times of the Sikh Gurus and almost extinct today.

The Sikh Gurus wrote Sri Guru Granth Sahib as a musical scripture, breaking down the chapters by Raags which convey different moods and providing detailed musical instructions alongside their poetic composition. Rather than ignoring the Gurus musical instructions and singing Kirtan to Punjabi pop tunes or Hindi film tunes, Bhai Avtar Singh has remained true to the style and structure of the singing practiced during the times of the Sikh Gurus. His singing is marked by an emotionally intense spiritual yearning that is truly unique to listen to.

Listening to this priceless and rare form of Kirtan one is taken back to an earlier time when a devotion to the Sikh musical tradition was a lifelong commitment. Bhai Avtar Singh and his nephew Bhai Swaran Singh on tabla have been performing together since 1946. Since 1999 his son, Bhai Kultar Singh has joined his father to help carry on this priceless family tradition for the benefit of the entire Sikh Panth.
