Baah Baah Black Sheep in Raag

I couldn’t help but share this with you all. I missed this on the SikhBlogPulse a while back last month but found it while browsing. I never would have imagined someone singing the nursery rhyme "Baa Baa Black Sheep" song in a raag style! Hahaha. Thanks Jagjit Singh’s (Malaysia’s), for sharing this video of Gurmukh Singh.

Ps. In case you don’t know this nursery rhyme, the "Baah Baah" part is the sound of the sheep talking (It is not "Baba" like Baba Deep Singh).

    That was great. It actually sounded a lot better than the original. In fact, he should make an album.

    Guru Pyaari Saadh Sangat Jio, hun aap ji de agge, apni ras-bahri awaaz vich RAAG Kavith gaayan karan gay (Hazoori Ragi Malasiya Gurdwara) Bhai Jagjeet Singh Ji (Malasiya wale)

    I know his uncle. The family is a family of kirtaani musicians and granthis. In Malaysia. His uncle who knows everything about gurbani kirtaan teaches kirtaan to children as just one of his many occupations. He had to have inherited a love of fun and poetry from his uncle. Reaches out to the little one inside each of us.

    It is very nice to hear that all of you guys enjoyed the video. Gurmukh is a truly talented person. He is a lawyer by profession and still is so good when comes to Kirtan. You can check a short complilation of kirtan videos of him at

    and another thing, he is working on his next nursery rhyme “twinkle twinkle little star” in RAAG! stay tuned for that!!

    I must say i am only goes to show that music is just an expression of the mind
