This book is an outcome of the seminar jointly organized by the Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts and Punjabi Academy, Delhi in December, 2006 on "Confluence of Traditions: Bhagat Bānī in Śrī Guru Granth Sahib". The IGNCA, since its very inception has been conducting research and documenting musical heritage of diverse communities of India under its Ādi Śravya (primal sound) programme of the Janapada Sampada Division. The focus of the Ādi Śravya programme is on the chanted, sung and recited word. The bānī of gurus and saints contained in Śrī Guru Granth Sāhib provides a unique and distinct experience of this sacred Śabda. Folk, devotional and classical music has flourished side by side in Punjab for centuries. Sikhism, Hinduism and Islam, the dominant religious faiths of Punjab, each have their distinct music repertoires, linked to a specific setting; spiritual and aesthetic needs. The four divisions of Punjabi's musical repertoire­ Sūfiānā Qalām, Qawwśli, gurmat saṅgīt and bhakti saṅgīt - are rooted in specific spiritual experience.
