University of Saskatchewan Library holds a largest collection of Ginans online and its corresponding research material.
Over time and geography, the purpose, form, and style of these traditions have found diverse expressions accommodating local customs and contexts.
At times these expressions have taken melodic forms leveraging the power of poetry and music to bring faith, knowledge, devotion and worship into ecstatic harmony.
An exemplar of such melodic expressions is the devotional literature of ginans of the Ismaili Muslim community.
The purpose of this website is to serve as a portal to the ginanic literature.
