vaheguru ji ka khalsa vaheguru ji ki fateh!

The akhand kirtani jatha does kirtan the way you described. They are not doing "weird kirtan" nor are they taking the "mick" out of sikhi. the people of the AKJ are very devout sikhs and are dedicated to the sikh lifestyle. they have their own way of doing kirtan which gives many people anand. everyone is different and there are many different types of kirtan tunes. They do naam simran like you described b/c they are in anand. The tunes they use are not bhangra beats but are the tunes Ragis used to used in the olden days. these tunes are very simple compared to complex rags.
