Gurbani Festival

The Gurbani Festival commemorated 400 years of Guru Granth Sahib. This sacred scripture embodies the spiritual wisdom and teachings of saints and gurus spanning diverse backgrounds, including Kabir, Guru Nanak, and Bhai Rabidas, transcending the confines of any single religion.

Gurbani belongs to everyone, not just people from the Sikh religion but also the rest of the world. It has the teachings of saints like Kabir Das and Ravidas, among other revered saints. It should be open to the world, not just to Sikhism alone.

By celebrating it beyond the confines of Gurdwaras and embracing a more inclusive approach, we invited a broader audience to experience its profound message.

The festivals had diverse renditions of Gurbani, ranging from traditional Raghi Ang to classical and folk interpretations, including the Qawwali Ang. Renowned artists such as Ajoy Chakrabarty, Madhup Mudgal, and Chand Afzal elevated the festival’s cultural significance, showcasing its versatility and depth. Rabbi Shergill sang Basant in his style, which reached out to the youth.
