Virtual Vaisakhi

This year we celebrate Vaisakhi in a Virtual Sangat online.

With Sikhs around the world quarantined in their homes and unable to visit their local Gurdwara to celebrate Vaisakhi, Sikhs are taking to the internet to connect and celebrate. Below are some resources you can use to listen to live kirtan, connect with a virtual sangat, hear inspiring Sikhi talks, and activities for kids.

Other Ways to Celebrate

 

Sikh Musical Heritage - The Untold Story:
The award-winning, feature-length documentary Sikh Musical Heritage - The Untold Story, explores the origins of traditional Sikh instrumentation and how a French instrument found its way into every Gurdwara (Sikh Temple) to become the central instrument in performing traditional Sikh music. Through a series of interviews, musical performances and historical accounts, the film journeys from the introduction of Sikh music by the founder of the Sikh faith, Guru Nanak Dev Ji, to the invasion of the British Empire in the 18th and 19th centuries that nearly destroyed all Sikh traditions.
