Kabir in Malwa

The Malwa belt of Madhya Pradesh lies in the western part of the state with Ujjain as the ancient centre and Indore, currently the largest city. The most interesting aspect of the folk music traditions of the area are the Bhajan mandalis that sing words of the mystic poets, especially Kabir, Meera, Surdas and others. There is a very strong branch of the Kabir panth (a sect that follows Kabir’s philosophy) here, and almost every village has a team of musicians who sing through the nights on a regular basis. There is of course the music that accompanies rituals, ceremonies or is sung at festivals and is very beautiful and rich.

    I am a fan of the Kabirproject and of Prahlad Singh Tipanya. His Sakal Hans Mein Ram Biraje is outstanding aur mere hriday mein is Kabir vani ni sakht chot mari hai…
