Path dha Bhog


Path the Bhog

Using a variety of traditional melodies, Dya Singh brings the wisdom of these sacred verses to ‘live’, with occasional ‘inspirations’ in English by youngest daughter Parvyn. This album also brings Parvyn of age as she holds almost every alternate line of the scriptures in tango with her father, in her mother tongue Punjabi.

This ceremony which is prevalent amongst the Sikhs narrated normally in a melodious verse reading form starts with the ‘Saloks’ (verses) of the ninth guru, Guru Tegh Bahadur, then a couple of verses by fifth guru, Guru Arjan Dev Ji followed by the Raag Mala (Garland of Ragas). In completion there is another piece of divine poetry also from within the Sri Guru Granth Sahib, by the third guru, Guru Amar Das Ji, called ‘Anand Sahib’ (the Psalm of Bliss). Normally the ceremony only has the first five verses, buut Dya Singh has rendered the complete 40 verses.

Dya Singh has brought these sacred verses to live with vibrant melodies accompanied by tabla (Indian hand drums) and the occasional touch of the guitar. The strength of this rendition are the vocals of Dya and his daughter Parvyn and Parvyn’s powerful English inspirations.

The album starts off slow as Parvyn and Dya feel their way through the first half with a heady crescendo in the Raag Mala followed by a steady melodious eight beat rhythm narration alternating between the two voices.

Once again, Dya Singh’s mastery of his brand of music combining the traditional music of the Sikhs with cavalier touches of contemporary inspirations makes this album a must for Dya Singh fans. As usual, this is vintage Dya Singh verse and music to touch the soul. Sikhs will find a special significance with this traditional sacred ceremony and young Sikhs will start appreciating it even more, through Dya Singh’s rendition.

(Album 45 minutes. First edition pack also contains a complete booklet of the narration in Gurmukhi, romanised English)
