ਕਲਜੁਗ ਮਹਿ ਕੀਰਤਨੁ ਪਰਧਾਨਾ
In the Dark times of KalJug, the Singing of the Lord’s Praises are deeply revered.
Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji, Ang 1075, SGGS
Attune yourself to the vibrations of the Timeless being and learn how to sing, string and glorify Wahegurus praises just as our ancestors have done for the past 500 years. P6Academy utilise’s world-class Ragis to teach the detailed theory and intricacies of the Guru’s Raag tradition.
What is Raag?
Singing the praises of the Almighty Lord has been a practice of many religions & communities for millennia. In the Indian subcontinent, Raags have been used to convey emotions/feelings for thousands of years. Raag is almost like a framework within which a specific set of rules apply – within these rules, a melody is sung. The beauty of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is every single Shabad is attuned to a particular Raag. In total, there are 60 Raags, some that have been utilised from ancient traditions and others that have been created by the Gurus themselves. The Gurus developed Raag as a universal language that enables us to experience & communicate with the divine if done correctly.
By teaching students Raag, we are not only preserving ancient traditions of the Guru but are also providing students with valuable skillsets that will aid them in life. Learning tabla can enhance a student’s manual dexterity whilst learning how to sing in front of others can really heighten confidence. In a safe & humble environment, whilst being taught by world-class teachers, students have the opportunity to learn about ancient musical traditions as a family.
We seek to revolutionise the teaching of Raag Kirtan within the UK. A student learning Raag is exposed to a whole array of skills that can provide them with great benefit. It is unfortunate that while students have amassed such skills, there has never been some form of recognition. Receiving recognition/awards can boost a prospective undergraduates personal statement or a job applicants CV. Therefore, by teaming up with awarding organisations, we hope to fill this gap. Furthermore, we aim to safeguard the Raag tradition by providing sustainable incomes for teachers giving rise to a self-sufficient micro-economy. From vocals & Vaja to Tabla & Tanti Saaj, we endeavour to provide an authentic experience as possible for students.
