hello every body,
i got response to my comments, it is great. really passion is not slave to anobody, but singing is not a passion. singing real singing not singing you listen these days, you watch singing with naked teen ager girls with a singer who not even does not know a.b.c of ragas. in our punjab they just start singing taht does not make any sense, wordings of songs has no sense at all. singing has become a thing of watching not singing. singers just dance which even they do not know. all punjabi singers except few who really learned saree gamma or knows these are singers, al other are not singers, they are just entertainers. singing need hard work to get perfection as you know from lata mageshkar,jagjeet singh or other hindi singers.
in west punjab they learn rgaas before they start singing, that make you singer and really you can see difference of that. you can see difference in song akhiyan udeek dian, sung by late nusrat fateh ali khan and some singers of east punjab, big difference. listen to atah u. khan, gulam ali .... more and more you see meaning of music and deep depth of words not just lar giya paycha etc.
east punjab singers really need big improvement. singing is a thing of listening not watching. they should learn some rags.
