Ustaad Surjeet Singh
Raag classes and performances

Starting on Friday, February 17th, there have been classes on Raag Kirtan with Ustaad Surjeet Singh and his nephew Avtar Singh. I used to play the sitar in 11th grade at Miri Piri, but in 12th grade I stopped for studies. I picked it again, and am recovering my lost skills.

Here are some pictures of all the students of the class playing Kirtan in Gurudwara:

And a couple pictures of the Raag performance at Shanti Kaur and Tyaga Singh's House:



And Avtar Singh's short performance:


I also got the audio for all of the performances and I will try to post them later once I have edited them.

ustad surjit singh is a namdahri and one of the finest sarangias( sanagari player )in the world.

he received training frm the namdhari guru jagjit singh on the dilruba and then picked up the sarangi from pandit ram narayan ..he is his master student.

amongst his prominent students is prof. surinder singh or the raj academy.
