Sacred Sounds: Sacred Sounds tells some of the largely forgotten stories of British India’s role in the First World War. Over one million Indian combatants and non-combatants participated in this devastating war. Of these just under 100,000 were Sikhs – an astonishingly high number – considering they represented a tiny percentage of India’s population. Inspired by an evocative photograph of Sikh soldiers performing Gurbani Kirtan or Shabads (Sikh sacred hymns) in a French barn, this live concert showcases the music that Sikh soldiers took with them to camp and battlefield. Sikh Music Traditions and the First World War.
