Gurbani Kirtan CD's by Gurmat Gian Group: Review

Devotional Hymns and Shabads by Gurpreet Kaur and Keerat Kaur

The Gurbani kirtan Audio CD's by Gurmat Gian Group are a collection of bhajans, shabads and hymns for all occasions, each based on a spiritual theme. Gurpreet Kaur, an instructor at Gurmat Gian Missionary College in Ludhiana India, founded the all women's group of which she and her daughter Keerat Kaur are the only permanent members. Original compositions accompanied by tabla, dilruba, and synthesizer are rehearsed hundreds of hours over a period of months before being recorded. All arrangements of the bhajans, or shabads, are composed in classical raag, the musical system in which the hymns of Guru Granth Sahib are written.

The sublime sound of Gurbani kirtan is an invaluable early learning language and musical experience. The exquisite ethereal performance is perfect as a soothing lullaby.
