Washington Capital Youth Kirtan Sammelan – Information Packet

The dharmik committee of Guru Nanak Foundation of America extends its warm invitation to sadh sangat to participate in the 12th Annual Washington Capital Youth Kirtan Sammelan to be held at GNFA on Saturday, May 28, from 9:30 am-6:30 pm. The goal of this sammelan is to encourage our youth to sing shabad-pardhan gurbani kirtan incorporating traditional elements like mangalacharan and shaan, to the accompaniment of Sikh heritage instruments like rabab, saranda, dilruba, taus, sarangi and jori.

The rules and guidelines, judging criteria and registration form are attached. Please note that a Best Percussion Award in each age category has been instituted starting this year. Another change is that Layakari may be performed in place of Taan if so desired. Please note these changes in items 7, 8 and D of the Judging Criteria Sheet. Please also note the addition since last year of a new age group of 19-25 year old participants, in addition to the 7-10, 11-14, and 15-18 year old age groups (age on Dec 31, 2015).
