Tambura Bhajans of Fiji
Brought to you by
A sizeable population living in Fiji islands have their origin in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. Tambura Bhajans are very important to people of Fiji and reflect our cultural heritage. These Bhajans are mostly of Kabir Das, Tulsi Das, Bramha Nand, Dharam Das, Sur Das, Jiva Nand, Kinkar Das, and many others. We are pleased to bring to you the collection of Tambura Bhajans collected for several years by Mr Jawahar Lal of Fiji who presently resides in London. His message about his bhajan collection is reproduced below:
"TO ALL THE TAMBURA BHAJAN LOVERS IN INDIA AND ALL OVER THE WORLD. MY NAME
IS JAWAHAR LAL S/O CHOTELAL COOK OF FSC LANE BA, NAUSORI, RAKI RAKI, AND SAMABULA
SUVA. I HAVE BEEN LIVING IN ENGLAND FOR OVER FORTY YEARS, AND COLLECTING BHAJAN FROM
ALL OVER FIJI FOR LAST THIRTY YEARS, HAVE OVER 1000 REAL TAMBURA BHAJAN, FROM 1970
TO 2007, AND I LIKE TO SHARE THEM WITH YOU ALL IN CANADA, UK, FIJI, USA, AUSTRALIA,
NEW ZEALAND, AND SPECIALLY OUR GREAT PARENTS MOTHERLAND OF INDIA, UTTAR PRADESH AND
BIHAR. I LIKE TO THANK DR P R PRASAD OF BIHARANDJHARKHAND.COM, FOR USING HIS
WEBSITE FOR MY FIJI BHAJAN. THIS IS ONLY FEW OF MY BHAJANS. SOON IF THINGS GOES
WELL, I WILL HAVE ALL THE BHAJANS ON THE WEBSITE.
THESE ARE THE REAL TAMBURA BHAJANS, HOW PEOPLE USED TO PLAY AND SING, NOT LIKE THE SO CALLED BHAJANIYAS OF TODAY, ITS MORE LIKE THEY ARE SINGING QAWALLIS, ALL THEY INTERESTED ARE IN MAKING MONEY, THEY HAVE RUINED THE REAL TASTE AND MEANING OF TAMBURA BHAJAN. MOST OF MY BHAJANS ARE OVER TWENTY YEARS OLD. LISTEN TO IT AND THEN YOU WILL KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT. MOST OF THE BHAJAN SINGERS HAVE PASSED AWAY, BUT I STILL GOT THE COLLECTION OF THEIR BEST BHAJANS. MOST WERE LIVE TAPING EVERY YEAR I WENT TO FIJI.
IF YOU LIKE TO SHARE YOUR VIEW ABOUT MY BHAJANS THEN PLEASE WRITE. MY E-MAIL ADDRESS IS firstname.lastname@example.org . SOME OF THE SINGERS LIVE IN CANADA, AND USA NOW, ENJOY THE BHAJANS, AND THANK YOU."
------ AAP KA.
