Gurbani Raag: Majh
This raga is attributed to Guru Nanak, who developed it from a Punjabi folk tune. It does not appear in the Ragmala nor does it seem to be a classical raga today. Possibly it has been reserved purely for Gurbani Sangeet. Majh was the setting for compositions by Guru Nanak, Guru Angad, Guru Amar Das, Guru Ram Das and Guru Arjan. No information about this raga is available from English sources. The reader is referred to a Punjabi text Gurmat Sangeet by Bhai Vir Singh, published by the Chief Khalsa Diwan, Amritsar.
