Fusion is Confusion

Recommended Posts

Blessed are those beautiful raags, which, when sang, quench all spiritual thirst.

(Guru Arjan Dev Ji, Raag Ramkali)

Sikh Musical Heritage, in collaboration with all the major student Sikh Societies across London, present a series of lectures aiming to shed light on the rich musical heritage of the Sikhs.

The lecture series, a first in Sikh academia, will lead you on a journey from the beginnings of Gurmat Sangeet, Sikh music, through the decline during the last century, and to the current state we find ourselves in today.

Continuing with Fusion is Confusion, the 2nd lecture in the series, Professor Surinder Singh takes us on a journey from the misl period to the present time. The presentation will deal with how new ideas, customs, cultures, languages and instruments have affected the evolution of sacred Sikh music. The lecture will also delve into the decline of Sikh musical traditions over the last 100 years. Packed full of multimedia and new research this lecture promises to be a unique.

The lecture is at 7pm on Monday the 16th January at the London School of Economics, in the new theatre, nearest tube Holborn (Picadilly and Central Line). Refreshments will be provided after the lecture.

The full itinerary of the series can be found below.
