Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

This is the 1st of many posts that I will be doing about the various kirtaneeas who did kirtan at the 3 day samagam held at Talkatora Garderns, New Delhi.Dr. Gurnam Singh
Dr. Singh is the son of Bhai Uttam Singh Ji, a shrimoni ragi. He was introduced to kirtan at an early age by his father. Later on he studied kirtan under the famous Professor Tara Singh of Patiala. Gurnam Singh Ji has written numerous books and edited some of the books written by Prof. Tara Singh ji. In addition he as an album to his credit in which he sung shabads in the vairous raags mentioned in the Guru Granth Sahib ji.

Currently he serves as the Professor and Head of the Gurmat Sangeet Chair and Department of Gurmat Sangeetat at Punjabi University Patiala. Also he is a Senior Fellow at Sangeet Natak Academy in New Delhi.

In 2002 he was honored at the Harvallabh Sangeet Samiti. In addtion he also received the Gurmat Sangeet Award.

The shabads which Dr. Gurnam Singh Ji sang at the samagam are as follows:

Kalyan – Hamre Eh Kirpa Kee Jay

Barah Mah Tukhari – Veshak – Nank Veshaki Prabh Paveh

Dhanaasree – Aarti

Malhaar Partal – Prey Ki Sobh Suhavnee Nee Ki

The recording can be downloaded from here. However, it will be pulled down in about 5 days so please download it as soon as possible. The reason is that the server is not working nor are they responding to my emails.

I apologize for the quality of the recordings. For some reason the organizers would not let us record. I managed to record but the quality aint the best cause I had to hide my recorder.

Guru Fateh!

    I’m not able to download the file at work, but hopefully tonight I’ll download it at home.
    I really wish I could have downloaded more of your stuff before akji went down. I did get all the Dr. Gurnam stuff, which is amazing!
    Also I noticed all the shabads match with the shabads that are in his book!
