Nirban Kirtan

Description This book is an informative treatise on Gurmat sangeet and Gurmat singing called "keertan". The bulk of Gurbani text is meant to be sung in the prescribed classical measures to the accompaniment of particular musical instruments. It gives a detailed definition of "Nirban" keertan, the details of Sikh Gurus who composed their verses in several Ragas and number of their verses under each Raaga. It also gives an account of ancient seats of Gurmat keertan as well as guidelines to the keertan singers about the intricacies of various classical measures, their timings and times. It also brings out several distortions which have crept into Gurbani singing and calls upon Gurdwara managements to set right these defects. The account, on the whole, is informative, based on the study of established practices, and reformative in tone and spirit[edit]
