Gurbani MP3 Pick

Well, I have to say I am really enjoying the Acapella Jatha Kirtan. Another featured clip. I just started hearing their voices after I got back from the UK. It’s great hearing their simple yet beautiful musical creativity. I hope they continue to create more beautiful music, which is uplifting to listen to.

Music by: Acapella Jatha – Gurpal Kaur, Rupjit Kaur, Gurbinder Kaur and Rajwinder Kaur
Shabad: Jo Mangai Takhur (4MB)

    Its okay… voice is great but I don’t like the sounds of drums in the back ground. it sounds like disco simran…

    It would be great if they know how to play the instruments properly and accordingly to soothe the soul.

    I attended Santam Kaurs concert in LA couple of months ago, she played violin which was magical and Guitar was played by khalsa (don’t know his name) was phenomenal and drums were played by another person. Everything sounded so peaceful with simran…

    I’m sorry in this mp3 it sounds like pop/disco going in the background. It is not a soul music…

    These acapella girls have only just started out, they are not a professional jatha as they say themselves. They only started out about a year ago, and they only have the one keyboard (not a professional one either)which they taught themselves. The cd was not recorded in a studio, but a home cd, which they greatfully copied for others to listen to, everything they have done is for seva and charity not for themselves. Oh yes and as for the drums, that was just a tester to see how it sounded, they were not intending on using it themselves but they had no tabla player so they had to use the drums. I would not make such a fuss about it. After all they are doing such great seva and they have limited amount of sources, i think it is great what they are doing and yes I agree Snatam Kaur is great and i love her singing too but not everyone is as fortunate as her to have all these wonderful instruments around her to play, and record producers to make her sound so beautiful and not forgetting professional! pul chuka muaf karna, sorry if i have offended anyone but i feel that comparing this jatha to someone as professional as Snatam Kaur is not right since they have only yet begun, and have onli their keyboard whereas she has a variety of instruments. Thankyou

    i think it sounds beautiful….we should always listen to kirtan in whatever way uplifts our own soul..personally for me i prefer western kirtan. Maybe it isnt the prefered choice of style but it helps me connect better and if it wasnt for western kirtan i wouldnt have learned so much of the basic words and mantras associated with sikhism.

    How can you connect better with a musical tunes of pop/disco music and mix with gurbani. I understand that our minds our tuned to whatever we are used to listen and thus we make connections…

    Then someone would say that they will make a better connection if Gurbani is sung with Rap music and hard rock or even metallica..

    We need to understand that we are trying to make connection with God NOT with what we used to listen on radio’s, TV or music channel.

    Our music should also be divine NOT a copy of main stream music.

    If you like main stream music thats great please listen but there is NO reason to mix Filth with divine Hyms……..

  9. I have to say they are doing a great job! Especially considering the minimal resources. Some people may not like it… but that is fine. I think it is great.

    Good Job Acapella Girls! Keep the Music coming!

    I understand what the anonymous is saying….

    we need to keep the standards high and Not listen to what our mind desires. If we do really want that then listen it separtely.

    The reason we adopted this path of sikhi is to reach the divine power, connect with it. Not to Connect what our Minds wants…

    Remember five thieves.. then we would say my mind feels calm by doing this or that… Aren’t we getting stuck in the Mud again…

    Please people lets not have club music with Gurbani…. Please do not fall into the Trap of our minds..

    I love guitar music, voilin etc, I have listen gurbani with these instruments at Guru Ram Das Ashram and it is DIVINE MUSIC with DIVINE HYMS… I love to go there and just drift away in Simran.

    It doesn’t matter what music simran is sung to as long as we remember Vaheguru’s name while singing it. I don’t think it’s right to say that we can only feel Vaheguru’s presence if we listen to a certain type of music – at the end of the day we are singing the Supreme Lord’s praises. It’s all about the pyaar with which it is sung :) and personally i can feel it when i hear simran and kirtan by the “acapellites” lol :D

    If the Recipe is not accurate then how can one taste the dish what it meant to be….

    So, lets do Remix music of Gurbani too so that we can enjoy what our minds wants! lets put some bhangra tunes into it so we can connect better, what else… lol

    I would like to understand what is Pyaar. If someone is in love with divine power then you don’t even need music because you hear it when you mediatate! you Drift into supernatural music.

    what is Pyaar!! it is easy to say.

    I enjoy the music, but I wonder why they refer to themselves as the acappella jetha? ‘a cappella’ means without instrumental accompaniment which they do use.

    well from wot i knw the reason they are called acapella jatha, is because they started off singing acapella 2without instruments’, they still do, but they also use instruments.

    Everyone finds their own way, no one can judge someone else, not everyone can get it right in one go, it takes mistakes and hard work to get the “recipe” as you put it.

    Bhangra is ‘folk songs’, there is a difference between using a beat and incorporating bhangra.
