    Ustad Bhai Arjan Singh 'Tarangar'
    b.1900 - d.1995


    At the age of 5, his father the legendary Bhai Ram Singh of Village Bhullar, Tarn Taran in Amritsar, offered the young child nicknamed 'Chiri' to Bhai Sahib Bhai Jwala Singh of Thatha Tibba, Kapurthala.

    His early education in singing and playing the taus began under the watchful gaze of BHai Sahib Jwala Singh while his learning of tabla and jori-pakhawaj began with Ustad Bhai Karta Singh. In 1920's, he came under the direct tutelage of the legendary Ustad Harnam Singh 'Jammuwale'.

    Tarangar Sahib never lost a dual in any 'akhara' and was revered by all of his contemporaries. There were only two, they said; Tarangar and Bhai Santu. People tried but they could not get these two to dual...!

    Here in this image taken by me in 1994, he is singing a rare composition in Raga Vadhans. His last five years, he raised me - I am grateful and fondly remember him, always.....

    From the album: "Maestros Unique" by Bhai Baldeep Singh

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
