बेडों के गीत (वादी भी कहते है )

गढ़वाली गीत जो की अब सुनाई भी नही देते हैं वो वाजे हैं (बैडों के गीत ) बैडों को बादी भी कहा जाता है और ये ही लोग हैं जिन्होंने उत्तरांचली संगीत की बुन्याद रखी है! उत्तरंखंदी संगीत को बढावा देने मैं भी इन लोगों का काफी योगदान रहा है

०३ गायक शिव चरण दास व विमला दास ०१ - भाग्यान बौ ०२- भानु बुरांस फूलिजा ०३ - चंपा फूली बुरांस फूली ०४- छोटी सयाली संकरा ०५- हे मेरी मन की प्यारी ०६ -जगदम्बा माता ०७- केचुवा की खोली

Other than the popular recording artists, Garhwal and Kumaon have a long tradition of wandering musicians and bards. These folk artists, known commonly as the baadi have traveled among the hill villages for millenia, carrying folk legends from valley to valley. Their oral traditions have served to preserve the old folklore and history of the Himalayas.

According to Ganesh Saili, Baadi songs can be classified in four categories:

Great Garhwali Personalities of Uttarakhand -1
 Jeet Singh Negi: First Garhwali singer of gramophone and Akashvani
                                                        Adaptation -Bhishma Kukreti
         “ Too wheli Beera uchi nisi dandyun man ghasiyaryun ka bhesh man…” stirred so much the insight of Uttrakhand written by Jeet Singh Negi that not only common men but even the knowledgeable Uttarakhandis perceive that this famous song is folk song .
        A couple of  few people knew  that Jeet Singh Negi created this song on the road, Agara road, Bhandup , Mumbai at  around 11PM. This author is fortunate that he listened the autos-story of Jeet Singh Negi about creation of this song by Jeet Singh himself at the residence of Mrs Pushpa Dobhal and her husband Professor Radha Ballabh Dobhal, Garhwal Darshan, Mumbai. Professor Dobhal have the recorded tape told the story of creation of ‘too wheli beera…” by Negi .
He was the initiator of creating Garhwali song, singing, performing cultural shows in various parts of India
   I tried for  searching on the net about complete biography of Jeet Singh Negi. However, my surprise that nothing  much is written about this great personality of India in web-world.
  This write up is to provide full honor to a legendary creative ever born in Uttarakhand.
  It is Negi’s  popularity that census department (jangana vibhag)  of government of India (1961) in its Vol.XV, Uttar Pradesh, Part V, Gramya Survekhsan, page48, describes the popularity of  song “too wheli beera…”
        Great Uttarkhandi personality Govindh Ballabh Pant was fond of the talent of Negi and he used to call jeet Singh Negi for performing of welcoming cultural show before foreign delegates as cultural show by Negi’s troop before Chines delegate, when Pant was home minister of India.

Patriotic and Soldier Oriented Folk Song Dance and Performing -4
Bhishma Kukreti
Garhwal Kumaun had been the land of patriotic people. For centuries, there was demand for Garh-Kumauni soldiers . Jeet Singh Negi is such a poet whose poems became popular at their initial stage. Kamla ar sipaiji is one his popular songs which became as folk songs
पाकी गाया गौंकी  सारी 
पोड़ी गे सट्यु   की  झड़ाई मेरी कमला
भेंटी जा तू आज मीतैं ,
हिमाला जान्दु छौं लड़ाई -- मेरी कमला
द्वी मैना भी नी ह्वाया
पैरियाँ नाक मां नथुली - मेरा सिपाई
कनकै जी रौलू मि ,
घर मा यखुली- यखुली मेरा सिपाई
बाली- कुंगळी  मुखडी को
हिमाली रंग ना सुखाई - मेरी कमला
धर्म आज मेरो यो इ च
छौं मि देस को सिपाई - मेरी कमला
जब भारी खुद लागली
दगड्या ज्युकड़ी मा ---मेरी सिपाई
खड़ी रौंलो योंयी जगा
तुमारो बाटो हेरी हेरी - मेरा सिपाई
बगत नी च रोणो को  ,
खिलै दे मुखडी को रंग - मेरी कमला
हंसी हंसी जाणि दे मि
निथर बीरता भंग - मेरी कमला
जावा मेरा बीर सिपाई ,
लगैक पैट्दा पिठाई -- मेरा सिपाई
आज हमारो धरम यो ही च ,
छ्याँ   तुम देस का सिपाई - मेरा सिपाई
छऊँ   मि देस को सिपाई -- मेरी कमला
छंयाँ तुम देस का सिपाई --- मेरा सिपाई
सन्दर्भ : जीत सिंह नेगी , श्याम घुंघरू बाजला
