Nice Keertan :)

I came across this keertan by Bibi Ashupreet Kaur jee and her sisters on Its really peaceful and soothing to listen to. Also I think it is done in accordance to the title Raag in the shabad. Its beautifully sung Keertan. The Keertan is from Jap108 Rainsbayee programme, which was held in Wolverhampton to commemorate the Shaheedi Diwas (martyrdom day) of the Chhote Sahibzaadey (young princes of Guru Gobind Singh jee) who were bricked alive at the age of 5 and 7, and Shaheedi of their elderly grandmother Mata Gujri Kaur jee.

Translation:- O people, O victims of this Maya (illusionary world), abandon your doubts and dance out in the open.

Ashupreet Kaur's jatha is seriously blessed by Mahaaraj. May they forever stay in Chardikala and serve the Panth!!!

Amazing.. she's sooo young - hearing her voice, one would imagine her to be a full grown bibi ji =)

I loved their Kirtan from the Manchester Smagam - it was funny, because that was the first time she had ever witnessed the implementation of 'Dhuni' in Kirtan. She liked it so much, she added it to her Shabad right there.

Manvir Singh Ji,

For the info of other Sikhs:

"Bibi Ashupreet Kaur & Jatha are will be at one of our "local" Gurdwara, Leyton Gurdwara
(71 Francis Road, Leyton, E10) this week Monday 9 Jan 2006 to Friday 13 Jan 2006 (7pm-8pm) and
probably saturday as well.

The jatha is of three sisters aged between 11-14, who sing brilliantly
both in Raag and 'khuu-la' kirtan. They were at the AKJ Manchester
Smagam and were said to be amazing and are also said to be the best
Jatha India has produced!

Leyton is the only Gurdwara they will be coming to in East London,
they have just spent two weeks at one of the Gurdwaras in Southall,
and prior to that they were in Manchester/Birmingham."

im a moorakh so i usually dont pay attention to a kirtan track unless its by a kirtani i like... but these bhanjees are AMAZING.

my elder sister who is not into sikhi at all still likes listening to kirtan sometimes but is very selective of what 'style' of kirtan she likes. however i think i'll be burning her a cd of this jatha's kirtan. :)
