Asa dee var...
No doubt this duo brothers satvinder and harvinder are doing perfect job with their sweet voice along with clearity.
Kirtan has to be such that one could atleast understand the word clearly which is being pronounced.
Keep it up brothers.
This is the best version I have ever heard. But I agree with one of the previous reviews that flute sounds little out of place and repeated alaaps or musical extensions make this very prolonged to be enjoyed in one sitting
My previous Review is just my personal opinion.
You might have a different one. Please excuse me if you think otherwise, and relax before sending me a flame email.
Given a chance, I would like to delete that review, as Bhai Satvinder Singh Ji is a great Raagi and I love to listen to his other creations, like "Koi Bole Ram Ram" etc.
It is very fantastic voice of the singers.
At very early I was not very entrusted in listening the BANI, but after listening Bhai Satvinder Singh & Harvinder Singh Ji there is no a day without BANI.My wife also very entrusted in Gurbani Kirtan. God save me.
Talented but bad direction
I may be a very small entity to comment on such talented singers, musicians and most of all Guru Ke Sikh. But following is what I personally feel:
I can feel the amount of Riyaaz, talent and labor that has gone into making of this album. However I didn't like it for the following reasons:
1. I am skeptic if this is a perfect "Raja Asraaj kee Dhuni". I think its modified. The musicians although have put lot of talent, but in a way modified the actual Dhuni.
2. I didnt like the Flute-like sound in the album. Sorry, but it sounds more like a Bhajan, not Gurbani.
3. There is a lot of un-sung space. The alaaps are too long, that throws the pleasure out, that the audience get when the Gurbani is being sung with Tabla and other Saaz. Would have been better if all/most of it were SUNG with small alaaps in between.
4. All the "Sur" are too loud (high pitched) to give any melody during the morning hours.
What are liked:
1. The tunes of all Shabads sung in Asa Di Waar by Bhai Satvinder Singh & Harvinder Singh have intrictate details. Very awesome talent.
2. The Tabla-Vaadak is extra-ordinary.
In conclusion: I would NOT like to listen to it (especially in the morning hours). The album is useful if I am trying to perfect my own music and looking for intricate Saaz, Singing and Sur details.
This may be appreciated by someone who listens to Hinduish Bhajans etc.
However, somebody who has been a fan of Gurbani might not like its music direction.
