About Manbir Singh
Manbir Singh was first introduced to Gurbani Kirtan early by his grandfather, Bhai Prem Singh, who enrolled him into the Gandharv Mahavidyalaya in Delhi, where he studied tabla.
After moving to Sydney at a young age, Manbir started learning kirtan locally with Bhai Gurdev Singh before coming under the tutelage of Bhai Harjit Singh Delhi (nephew and student of Bhai Santa Singh Ji).
Manbir’s more rigorous Classical vocal training began with Ustaad Mazhar and Jawad Ali Khan (grandsons of Ustaad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan), who initiated him as a Ganda-Band Shagird of Kasoor Patiala Gharana. He also spent some time learning from Ustad Baldev S. Narang.
Manbir’s training in Shastriya Sangeet has since been and now continues under the tutelage of Pt. Shantanu Bhattacharyya with whom Manbir is studying the finer nuances of Raag Sangeet.
Manbir is also pursuing further Taleem in Punjabi and Rababi compositions from Ustad Badar Uz Zaman (disciple of Bhai Naseera Rababi, Bhai Faiz Rababi and Chhote Gulam Ali Khan of Kasur).
