Description

This book, for the first time, endeavors to highlight the importance of Shabad Kirtan in accordance with the established tradition of Sikh musicology by composing and singing the 31 Ragas and 31 Raaga-forms from Shri Guru Granth Sahib. The musical notations of these 62 raagas compositions are included in this book.

Based on the main motive of carrying across the message of the Divine Gurbani through the cosmic language of music too the vast sea of humanity irrespective of caste or creed, the Sikh musicology distinguishes itself from the other musical traditions of India, or the world for that matter, due to its character of originality.

In Sikhism, a specific tradition of Shabad Kirtan has been prescribed with the sole mission of disseminating the holy message of Shri 'Guru Granth Sahib.' We can define this music, that flows in tune with the Gurmat or the ideology of the Sikh Gurus, as Gurmat Sangeet or Musicology of Sikh Music. In Sikh Musicology, the pivotal importance of the Shabad lies in its being elevated to the status of the Guru. Specific musicology for Shabad Kitten has been established in shri Guru Granth Sahib with a view to spread the message of the shabad so widely as to cover the whole mankind. The historical development of the Sikh history is a testimony to the practical relevance of the same. The tradition of Shabad Kirtan has existed in Sikhism down the centuries. Apart from the divine recitations of the saints and seers preceding the Gurus and their contemporaries the special original ragas, the different forms of the raagas, the forms of classical and folk singing styles, special music signs of Shabad Kirtan, kirtan chaukis, stringed instruments, kirtan taksals and kirtaniaas constitute specific musical elements to illustrate the musicology of this tradition.

Based on the main motive of carrying across the message of the Divine Gurbani through the cosmic language of music, to the vast sea of humanity irrespective of cast or creed, the Sikh musicology distinguished itself from the other musical traditions of India, or the world for that matter, due to its character of originality. The voyage of the development of this exclusively spiritual tradition can be viewed as the predominant music movement of Indian music.

We can identify Sikh musicology from the Shabad Kirtan composed according to the Sri Guru Granth Sahib based music pattern and prevailing original and practical tradition. IT is with this purport in view that the author of this book, for the first time, has endeavored to highlight the importance of Shabad Kirtan in accordance with the established tradition of Sikh musicology by composing and singing the 31 Ragas and 31 Raaga-forms from Shri Guru Granth Sahib. The musical notations of these 62 raagas compositions are being included in this book.
