ANNUAL SIKH FILM FESTIVAL 2006:
SAZ GURMAT SANGIT
The Saz of Gurmat Sangit is a documentary that focuses on the efforts being made to revive the Kirtan Parampara (tradition) of singing Shabads on Sikh Musical Instruments. Interviews reveal the history of Gurmat Sangit and talk about the personal initiatives of individuals in the Diaspora to learn Sikh Musicology.
The documentary also shows the art of making these instruments and gives the viewers an understanding of how intricate the process is. The intent is for the audience to develop an appreciation for this revivalist effort and to educate them of the richness of Gurmat Sangit.
The project was shot in India, UK and North America.
