Nirvair Khalsa Jatha, the UK-based jatha that made its mark with dramatic and catchy video snippets of their kirtan and katha, emerged as the main draw at the five-day Dasmesh Pita Semagam which ended in Kampar, Perak.

“The crowds are certainly larger than last year,” one regular participant told Asia Samachar.

The fourth consecutive annual event was organised to celebrate the birth of Guru Gobind Singh.
