Light Singing (Bhajan)
Bhajan is a type of Indian Devotional Music and
has its groundwork in the Hymns found in Samaveda - One of the Four
Indian Vedas and came into practice after the bhakti movement. 'Bhaj'
means worship or to serve or adore, so when bhajan singers, bhakts or
worshipers sing bhajan they express their love or adoration for God
through singing bhajans or bhakti sangeet therefore the teachings of
saints and descriptions of Gods have all been the subject of bhajans.
Tulsidas, Surdas, Meera Bai, Kabir are some of the medieval age devotees or bhakti geet sangeet singers. Thus, now a bhajan can be as simple as a mantra, Sanskrit sloka, spiritual chant, a simple prayer or a plain Indian temple aarti or a kirtan or it may be as sophisticated as the drupad or kriti as bhajan singing can be now based on Indian ragas and taalas.
