The Gurmat Sangeet Project is delighted
to make available high quality recordings that are reflective of the
rich traditions of Gurmat Sangeet. While there is no shortage of studio
recordings of Kirtan, most of the material available today is a product
of the commercial money making machine which, unfortunately has played
a large role in the dilution of this tradition. In most part these studio
recordings are over produced and over instrumented; the net result is
an extremely banal form of Kirtan which is almost completely bereft
of spirituality. Often times the melodies employed are cheap imitations
of film music, ghazal music or other prevalent popular forms. Additionally,
even when some good recordings are available, the accompanying information
on the shabads and the singers is very sparse.
All shabads are available for download
in high quality MP3 format.
are encouraged to download these MP3 files, save them on your computer,
burn CDs and widely distribute them to lovers of Gurmat Sangeet. These
shabads are the Guru's gift to everyone and should be freely shared.
The few copyrighted recordings on this site are an exceptipon to this;
a copyright notice is attached to each suh recording.
