    Instrument

    Sangat ji, Does anyone know which 'tanti saaj' /'purtan' instrument is the cheapest? - apart from vajja, dholki, tabla what would the price be (in pounds) if you brought it from india? Any shops in Punjab that you would recommend? thank you!
  2. Sat Siri Akaal ji veere, I just have an urgent question. Can you please tell me which Kirtan instruments were used before the british "Vaaja/Baaja" came? I mean what kind of instruments Guru jis played with , bhai mardana etc.. I really want to learn - I have this strong feeling and this is my only chance because my parents are recently in india and I hope I can beg to them that they can buy me a instrument.. Because I dont kno where to buy.. I just saw a video on youtube which instrument is this?? Sarangi , Tanti Saaj? I dont know the real diffence please tell me.. I really want to learn it.. because I can identify myself with these vibes and tunes... please!! I love these deep dark sounding string instruments combined with guru jis bani it is such a BLISS! I dont know how to explain . I like these deep dark tunes.. and not these happy jarring tunes/sounds. Here is another example , maybe this can explain more: thank you for helping me. And btw: if you ask why I dont go to a local gurudwara : its simple, I live in germany we have no gurudwara near here... I know it will be difficult to learn on myself etc... but what else I can do ? I have no choice and I really want to ... These tunes just fullify my a place in my heart.. I feel I am lacking something and this is the solution...
  3. Dear Sangat ji, Guruji has been kind to bring me to Amritsar in november. I would be there for a week and maximize my time there. One of the things i would like to do is learn the rebab. Is there anyone you know or any organization that would teach me how to play the saaj in one week? maybe just a begineer's level.? Thank you Gurfateh
  4. I am absolutely in love with keertan by Prof Paramjot Singh Ji. Audios are available on audio section on www.gurmatveechar.com under 'keertan' and then 'Prof paramjot singh'. I just wanted to ask can anyone share any information on Prof Ji, such as where they are based, their background etc? A photo or video would be nice too! Thank you.
  5. ‘Amrit Vela’ is the first official music release by The Gurmat Sangeet Academy (GSA) - a ‘not-for-profit’ Sikh Music school. The primary artists Bhai Harjinder Singh Lallie and Bhai Narinderjit Singh Lallie are very well known in the UK and abroad for their very traditional and orthodox kirtan which is performed using authentic stringed and percussion instruments such as the taoos and the Jori. During the twentieth century, kirtan became increasingly influenced by both internal and external pressures such as the growing popularity of popular music (film, bhangra etc). Sikh ragis were directly influenced by this and this led to a deterioration in upholding our musical traditions leading to a near extinction of particular Sikh instruments, reets (musical renditions and tunes) and even the rendition of some of our ragas. The GSA set out to reinvigorate these styles and in particular to raise awareness of the traditional style of kirtan. The release of 'Amrit Vela’ comes amidst a revival of traditional Sikh musical instruments and an avid interest in Sikh musicology around the UK and the rest of the world. The album features a number of traditional compositions performed with a number of Sikh instruments including the Sarangi, Taoos, Dilraba, Tarsehnai and the Rabab. All the recordings are accompanied by the Jori (Sikh percussion) and a tabla. This album contains sabads that are in Ragas generally recited in the early hours of the morning during sunrise. During these hours one has the opportunity for deep contemplation and self-reflection, it is an opportune time for spiritual practice and growth. The Sikh scriptures give Gurbani Kirtan the highest status with regards to spiritual practice and we hope the listener can appreciate the subtleness, penetrating and empowering sequencing of notes within the Ragas and sabads chosen for this album. Amrit Vela can be purchased directly from the Gurmat Sangeet Academy from here: http://www.gurmatsangeet.org/purchaseamritvela/. Alternatively, you can purchase from iTunes/Amazon by clicking here: http://www.gurmatsangeet.org/purchase-ambrosial-hours/. In addition, the album is also available from DTF stores (Birmingham UK). The Gurmat Sangeet Academy provides professional and high class Indian music tuition open to all regardless of background, colour, race, religion and perhaps most importantly musical ability! Their aim is to promote kirtan (Sikh music), especially Tanti Saaj (stringed instruments) based kirtan which is done in accordance with Gurmat (the way of the Guru) Contributions made by the musicians on the album are done solely on a Seva (selfless service) basis and all proceeds are going back into Gurmat Sangeet Academy projects. These projects are purely non-profit in which no money is made by any of the project contributors. All proceeds go back into Seva and to maintain the future longevity of the series. We urge you to offer your support by purchasing only legitimate and legal copies of the album. Press and media can claim a free copy of “Amrit Vela” from the Gurmat Sangeet Academy team by emailing harj@lallie.co.uk citing 'general enquiries' in the subject header.
