Hi friends,

I grew very fond of the Sikh raga renditions of for example Surinder Singh.

Those are very interesting because some seem to be really old and codified for centuries.

Unfortunately, on the Sikh websites I found it is only mentioned that the Ragas are in the book, but not really tell me how they are written down.
Is it only the lyrics of the hymns, with oral musical tradition passed on, or is musical information in it?

Also, I would like to know if there is a CD box of all hymns played in traditional style (that is, with Sarangi/Taus, Bansuri, Sarod etc, but without harmonium - I really don't like the sound very much).

Thanks!

As it turns out, the Sikh community is very generous with recordings - I found a cornucopia of fine Ragas on Sikh.net! :)

For your enjoyment:

Naam Dharis not only have a very old tradition of kirtan in these raags but also sing in uncommon Taals. Have a lot of videos on youtube.
