Jalandhar, April 3

The Shri Baba Harivallabh Sangeet Sangeet Mahasabha today declared that the 145th Shree Baba Harivallabh Sangeet Sammlean shall be dedicated to Hazoori Ragi Bhai Nirmal Singh Khalsa. The declaration was made by mahasabha president Purnima Beri.

As friends and well-wishers recalled his humility and politeness even after getting huge acclaim, they also rued the loss of a scholar with immeasurable knowledge.

Teerath Singh Dhillon, a friend for the past 20 years, said Bhai Khalsa’s demise was a great loss to the world of music.

Bhai Khalsa spent a brief time at Lohian in Jalandhar, before settling down in Amritsar. Dhillon, his collaborator on several scholarly projects, said, “he was among the handful of people in the state who shareed an equal depth and insight into both the Gurmat Sangeet and Hindustani classical traditions. The first and only Sikh ragi to get a Padma Shri yet, he also learned from Ghulam Ali Sahib and shared a fond friendship with him.”
