Inside the Qila (fort) at Sultanpur Lodhi, home of Anad Conservatory

Harbhajan Kaur’s rabab, made by Bhai Baldeep Singh, is waiting for its “skin” at Sultanpur Lodhi. Bhai Baldeep Singh replicated Guru Arjan’s rabab in design (though Bhai Baldeep will use his own way of applying the skin that does not involve nailing the skin to the rabab, and he has carved the motifs in a 3-dimensional relief.) Parminder Singh (foremost pakhavaj student and apprenticing instrument maker of Bhai Baldeep Singh’s) with Sharanjit Singh, a ragi local to Sultanpur Lodhi. Parminder Singh has been doing some cleaning of the carving and polishing on the rabab carved by Bhai Baldeep Singh.

    Sat Shri Akal ji! How can we buy a rabab? Can I please have the address and/or contact number to get a rabab made? If not, is there any other sellers that I can reach out to for ordering Punjab style rabab? The ones available online are not Punjab style. Thanks and God bless.
