Bhai Gian Singh Ji 'Jogi'

Photograph contributed by S. Nachattar Singh Sahota Ji

Bhai Gyan Singh Ji, in his 90s hails from Kapurthala. He is one of the last of the old school Ragis still alive, who identify strongly with the Rababi style of Kirtan that was prevalent before the partition of India in 1947. Bhai Gyan Singh Ji is particularly fond of singing shabads in the Kafi ang, a light classical style of singing, most compositions usually set to Raga Kafi or a variant, usually in a 14 beat rhythmic cycle called Deepchandi. .

The kirtan was recorded live, in the huzuri of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib at the Bridgewater Gurdwara & in private sessions in New Jersey in the mid 1990s
