From his maiden album, The Unforgettable and its soul-stirring number "Baat Niklegi To Phir Door Talak Jayegi " to his gazals for Mirza Ghalib, Jagjit Singh has made a steep uphill journey in terms of popularity and contributions to the gazal genre. The purists have often accused him of unrestrained experimentation with the art-form, but his listeners and patrons have only responded with mesmerised adoration.
Jagjit's deep voice is like the softest beanbag cradling your sensibilities, while the lyrics cull out your hearts deepest aches and aspirations and softly hum them. This Padma Bhushan awardee is famous for playback singing too .Remember Kasak, Arth, Saath Saath, or even Sarfarosh? Apart from his wife Chitra Singh, he has also sung with Lata Mangeshkar in the album Sajda. Maa, Hare Krishna and Hey Ram are the bhajan albums by this versatile doyen.
The 25th of February is the lucky day when Jagjit Singh comes to Hyderabad and performs at the Shilpa Kala Vedika in a concert starting 1930 hours. If you are a Jagjit fan, hurry to one of the donor-pass outlets before your fellow-admirers of Jagjit beat you to it!
