Sikh Musical Heritage

Sikh History

With the multi-award-winning documentary Sikh Musical Heritage ‘The Untold Story’, Professor Surinder Singh makes previously unaccessible knowledge available. The powerful technique of Sikh Music would have almost been forgotten and its history never been told without the dedication and efforts undertaken by Yogi Ji to initiate a broad Sikh Music revival. You can explore the insight of the Sikh music writings and the Shabad kirtan which is almost completely unheard these days.


The documentary is one of our big milestones, which for the first time compiles and presents historic evidence and philosophical insight into the art of Sikh Music, also known as Kirtan or Gurmat Sangeet. In this picture, you can see Yogi Professor Surinder Singh Ji in one of the interview shootings sharing his great understanding of Sikh musicology, the study of the emotional properties of the musical moods (Raags) within Siri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
