Waheguru Thankk you for such a lovely shabad Very beautiful indeed
Wish you wore lively or Light colours Black does not suit a Kirtan Sant or Sikhs.
Thanks Amarjit Singh ji for appreciating our Gurbani Singing. Sure, we would try some more lively colors for Album cover next time.
Although one year late, but I do not agree with Bamrah Sahib. Many Sikhs use this colour for dastar. As far Sants, Kale mande kapde Kala mainda vase… So far as colour for a Keertania this has very rich golden embroidery and provides a beautiful glow to the face. Every Gurbani shabad is lovely so we can not single out one. However we must appreciate the sweet vocals, and understanding of the Raag sung by the Keertania.
Thanks Gurdip Singh ji for being here and for appreciating the Raag based Gurbani singing by Gurmat Gian Group. Do Keep visiting.
