On the 15th of January, 2022, Gyaan Adab hosted Kahat Kabir Suno Bhai Sadho under its initiative Guldasta-e-Urdu. The programme featured young artists and brothers, Satish Kumar and Vinay Kumar.
Coming from a lineage of Kabir Panthis, Satish Kumar has nurtured his musical inheritance of Nirgun recitals based on the writings of Kabir and passed down the generations. Along with being a vocalist and singing tutor, Satish is an active performing artist.
The evening began with a rendition of Had Had Tapay So Auliya, a Kabir composition that elucidates the many limits that are overcome in order to live the life of a Fakir. In line with this sentiment, and other teachings of Kabir that speak of overcoming religious constraints, a well curated set of compositions were performed by the sibling duo.
The set included other compositions such as Sadho Sadho Dekho Re Jag Borana Lage, Durlab Manoos Janam Hai, Deh Na Baaram Bar, Biraha Ke Agiyaa, Laagela Tan Mein among others. The audience truly enjoyed the performance as was shared in the post performance discussion.
This event was curated and arranged by our trustees Nasima Merchant and Farook Merchant.
