Gurbani by young artists (March 27th, 2019)

An evening of Gurbani by Young Artists Prachi Makkar, Surya Makkar and Gurleen Kaur.

It was the second Gurbani Kirtan session organized by the Consulate in commemoration of the 550th birth anniversary of Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Prachi Makkar, a trained classical singer who has for long been singing devotional songs at Gurudwaras and temples, sang a couple of hymns (shabads). She was accompanied by Gurleen Kaur, trained in classical singing, on Surmandal, and Surya Makkar on Tabla The three enthralled the audience for an hour. Prachi cast a spell with her melodious voice. The roomful audience appeared to be in a trance while Prachi sang 5 shabads, followed by recitation of Anand Sahib and ardas (prayer). The Sikh community has greatly appreciated the initiative of Mr. Sandeep Chakraborty, Consul General who took a lead in having the Gurbani Kirtan session organized. It was his idea that the younger generation should be involved and encouraged to participate in promoting Indian culture in all forms .
