Raag Asa Kirtan Darbar

I had got an opportunity to attend a kirtan darbar in raag asa on 18th November 2006 at Bhai Vir Singh Sahitya Sadan, New Delhi. A small booklet was distributed there. Here are some pictures from the booklet. I also got to read a wonderful article on Raag Asa by Dr. Jagir Singh (editor of the monthly ‘Amrit Kirtan’) You can read the scanned article by downloading at this LINK

A part of recordings of this kirtan darbar you can down load HERE

A similar kirtan Darbar was held in March 2004 on Raag Asa, Bhai Avtar Singh ji , Bibi Jaswant Kaur and many others participated. You can down load those live recordings HERE

An artist's imagination- though, those who play the rabab know better but I think the jeel is held in right hand and left hand glides over the strings. But here it is the opposite.
