Idea Cellular is organising Idea Jalsa 2008, a series of multi-city music concerts, in partnership with the Indian Music Academy, in which legendary musicians will be introducing the young next generation musicians, showcasing four genres of Indian Music - Classical, Sufi, Ghazals and Bhajans. The concerts which started during September 2007 in Cochin, will end on 29th February 2008 in Chennai.

The Hyderabad leg will be held on 2nd February, at the Nizam College grounds in which the legendary ghazal maestro Jagjit Singh will participate along with upcoming singer Runa Rizvi.Jagjit Singh is one of the topmost ghazal singers, born in Ganganagar, Rajasthan. He learnt music under Pandit Chaganlal Sharma for 2 years in Ganganagar, and later devoted 6 years to learning the Khayal, Thumri and Dhrupad forms of Indian classical music from Ustad Jamaal Khan of the Sainia gharana.

He has many music albums to his credit, many of which topped both the ghazal and the general music charts. He has done mostly solo albums, but his numbers with Chitra Singh (his wife) and Lata Mangeshkar are some of the memorable ones. His songs Sarakti Jaye Hai Rukh Se Naqab Aahista Aahista, Aah Ko Chahiye, Baat Niklegi To Door Talak Jayegi and Woh Kagaz Ki Kashti are some of his best. He was awarded the Padma Bhushan in 2003.

Runa Rizvi is the latest singing sensation in the world of music and is the worthy daughter of Ghazal maestro Rajkumar Rizvi & Indrani Rizvi. She belongs to the Kalavant gharana and has been trained in classical, semi-classical and light classical music & can sing anything from Hindi film songs to Ghazals, Thumri, Folk, Punjabi & Sufi Music as well as Western & Pop music, with equal elan.

Runa has rendered her voice for the serials like ‘Milee’ & ‘Kavyanjali’ on Star Plus. She has performed & worked with famous artists like Leslie Louis, Bappi Lahiri, Sandesh Shandilya, Sultan Khan, Abhijeet & Jaspinder Nirula. She has not only performed in India but all over UK & USA and conducts work shops regularly with her father every year in New York, Chicago and Toronto. Recently Runa had rendered playback for the film Provoked starring Aishwarya Rai.

The Prime Motive behind Idea Jalsa is to introduce young artistes to the Indian music listeners by reaching out to the people. Towards this, an interactive session will be held with the artistes after the concert to allow the audience to get to know about the legends and also the upcoming stars.

The entry is free for everyone. Please contact Idea Cellular at 6665-2000 for further details.
