Wot ppl say abt GURDAS~~
| Ssa ji..|
Here is an article I found on the internet about Gurdas Ji - titled 'What others say about him'
rakesh roshan (actor,producer,director):
Jis dharti per panj darya behti hain uski ek Tehzeeb hain aur woh yeh hain ki jaha Gurdas Maan jaisa Mahan Kalakar perform kar gaya ho, us Stage par kisi doosare kalakar ko aana nahin chahiye .
sardara gill (singer )
I have been listening to his songs since my childhood. Very few singers have the range that he has in his voice. he has been singing for the last 20 years. His voice is sweet, his pronunciation -- excellent. Make him sing any song in any language he has perfect tuning. And, whenever he sings, you will feel as if someone is singing in a temple. Mori rakhyeo laaj guru dev...
samsher sandhu (writter):
Her voice is like a shaft of pure light, a glow that illuminates this world as it were.
Ab main Maan ji ke bare mein kuch kahu, yeh to Sooraj ko Diya dikhane ke jaisa hoga.
preeti sapru (actress):
Maan ji kisi tareef ke nahin, balki parastish ke kabil hain. Unki awaaz sunne ke baad kuch aisa aalam-tari ho jata hai jise bayaan karana bada mushkil hain. Yun samajhiye jaise koi dargah ya mandir main jaye, to vahan pahunch kar ibadat ke liye khud-ba-khud sar jhuk jaata hain aur aankhon se besakhta aasoon bahne lagte hain.
charnjit ahuja (music director)
Gurdas ek Ehsaas hai jo Mehsoos kita ja sakda hain Baiyan nahi.
anand raj anand (music director)
I wish was an actor and have the honour to perform a song sung by gurdas on screen.
devinder khannewala (film writer and lyricist):
The Earth has but one sun, one moon and one Gurdas Mann.
ashok masti (singer):
MAANJI han ta, assi haan, sadi Khoobsurati hai, sadi Punjabi gayeki hai.
amar haldipur (composer & poet):
The very heart of punjab throbs in his voice.
babbu maan (singer):
For me, he's like a member of my family. I've been listening to his songs since I was about 10 years old. he's like a guru for me -- someone I've always followed. He has been my inspiration, I've tried to mould my career like hiss. He's perfect -- his voice, the way he sings.
surinder sodhi (composer and singer):
Unparalleled - there is no other word.
My love for music arises because of Maanji's songs. Not just his voice, he is the ideal exponent of everything to do with music. For me, there cannot be anything greater than him... I'm not talking about the pure classical format, but the light music format with words in it.
500 years from now, there'll be only two names which will be remembered in punjabi music, surinder kaur and gurdas maan.
adesh sri vastav (composer, singer ):
The greatest songster of all times.
kuljit bhamra (composer and singer):
The more he hums, the more he sings, the richer our musical heritage becomes.
harbhajan maan (singer):
Many an artiste has touched the pinnacle of success but Gurdas Maan is rare one who, once having reached it, never came down
alm lohar (pakstani singer):
In Indian Punjab - Gurdas Maan sings....all others make a miserable effort.
jagjit singh (ghazal singer):
The 'blessed creature' never goes out of tune...what a miracle of God.
USTAD AMEER KHAN (classical singer):
What we classical musicians take 3 and 1/2 hours to accomplish, maan does in 3 minutes.
