MUSIC MONDAY - Rasna Japti Tuhi Tuhi

It was a no-brainer that our first MUSIC MONDAY on Youtube was going to be an homage to our musical roots; which began at the age of eight when we started to learn how to sing Sikh devotional hymns, or SHABAD

This SHABAD has had a coveted spot in our hearts ever since we first learned how to sing it at the age of eleven - time is fleeting!

----------------------------

RAAG - an Indian Classical melodic mode of music
SAARANG - a light afternoon melodic mode crafted for and sung during noon
SHABAD - Shabad (devotional hymn) from Guru Granth Sahib ji
GURU GRANTH SAHIB JI - Sikh spiritual scripture, revered as our eternal Guru guiding us in this mortal world

-------------------------------

SHABAD TRANSLATION from Sikhnet.com
