About Gian Singh Namdhari

He is a prominent artist of Jori-Pakhawaj which also known as "Guru Ghar Da Saaz". He represents the great legacy of Punjab Gharana and namdhari Community. Gian Singh is preserving the heritage of Punjab’s traditional music & continues expanding this traditional skill jori- pakhawaj & tabla punjab gharana. A jori pakhawaj is basically a pakhawaj split into two. (A pakhawaj is a north Indian classical barrel drum—precursor to the tabla—now used mostly in Dhrupad music.) In terms of technique, repertoire, and sound the jori falls somewhere between a traditional Pakhawaj and Tabla.

Because of  the kind grace and blessings of His Holiness Sri Satguru Jagjit Singh Ji Maharaj, at the age of 10 years he started getting the art of percussion( tabla) from Pandit Rajesh Malviya ji senior disciple of Ustad Allah Rakha khan Sahib. After a while in 2004 with Satguru Ji's prestigeous Gian Singh had started pakhawaj- jori vadan (punjab gharana)  training under Pakhawaj Samrat Ustad Sukhwinder Singh Namdhari Ji alias Pinky ji - disciple of Ustad Nehaal Singh ji & Pandit Kishan Maharaj ji.  As a result his playing style becomes intense and extraordinary. For a time he also learnt from Sri Sukhdev Singh Sukhi Namdhari - disciple of Baba Nihal Singh Ji. In conclusion we can say that he had great oportunities to learn from highly professional and well known artists.

Gian singh Namdhari is a first generation in family who is representing Punjab Gharana Percussion. In year 2019 his holiness "Sri Satguru Uday Singh Ji Maharaj" made Gian Singh disciple of Pandit Yogesh Samsi Ji at Mumbai in his house. Jori-Pakhawaj Vadan is a very traditional baaj of percussion in Punjab. He is doing his best to propagate and promote Jorhi Vadan with his continuous Riaz and Training.
