About Guru Shabad Singh Khalsa: 

Guru Shabad Singh Khalsa is a pioneer of Kundalini Yoga music. His tunes are evergreen and are played in Yoga studios around the world.

Classics such as Sa Re Sa Sa or Pavan Pavan were used by Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga, during various meditations, and are still being played thousandfold during yoga classes today.

In the 1990s, Yogi Bhajan instructed Guru Shabad Singh to compose music to the verses of Jaap Sahib, one of the central Sikh prayers. Hence the popular CD’s ‘Ajai Alai’ and ‘Raj Yoga’ came into being.

Guru Shabad Singh’s musical style derives from his unique and keen sense for beautiful and catchy melodies and their composition on the guitar. With his soft and carrying voice, he blesses his music with a unique quality and atmosphere. On his CDs, Guru Shabad Singh Khalsa is often accompanied by the wonderful background vocals of his former wife Sarab Shakti Kaur, as well as by his son Hargobind Singh (Hargo), who contributes bass, guitar and vocals. Guest musicians regularly are given a place of honor on his CDs.

Guru Shabad Singh Khalsa is also THE Sadhana composer: no other musician has ever composed and released as many nice Sadhana CDs as he has.

About Harijot Singh Khalsa:

About the Bani Jaap Sahib

Jaap Sahib was first uttered by Guru Gobind Singh ji, the tenth Guru. Jaap Sahib is made up of 199 verses and is the first Bani of the Sri Dasam Granth Saahib Ji (p.1-10). It is one of the Five Banis recited by most Sikhs each morning and the bani that the Panj Pyare recite while preparing Amrit on the occasion of Amrit Sanchaar (Sikh Initiation), a ceremony held to admit initiates into the Khalsa Panth. It is the second Bani of the five in the daily morning prayer routine of a Sikh, usually recited after Japji Sahib (SikhiWiki).
