Rags of Guru Teg Bahadar Sahib

Project/s Description/s

Majority of Sikhs know Guru Teg Bahadar Sahib for his sacrifice and as a 'champion of human rights'. Through this project, we want to highlight a shade of Guru Teg Bahadar Sahib’s life, unknown to many in Sikh world and beyond, which is his love for music. Guru Teg Bahadar Sahib was a great musicologist, expert Pakhawaj (Mridang) player and recited Bani in 17 Rags. To introduce Guru Teg Bahadar Sahib’s love to many and celebrate his 400th birth centenary, Nad Music Institute will record & share Guru Teg Bahadar Sahib's 17 Sabads in 17 Rags from Guru Granth Sahib. On this project we will collaborate with expert musicians around the world who will create new compositions in all 17 Rags based on traditional string instruments and Pakhawaj tals. This is the first ever effort to record Guru Teg Bahadar Sahib’s Bani in all Rags on Pakhawaj tals. The recordings will be shared publicly and free of cost to worldwide sangat. We believe that this is an important project because it brings forth the rich heritage of Kirtan as it was practiced, with traditional instruments (Saranda, Taus, Pakhawaj etc.) during Guru Sahib's period.
