Bow to the grand masters of music and poetry - vocal maestro Jagjit Singh and Oscar winning lyricist Gulzar respectively, who are in town to perform a unique jugalbandi of poetry and singing at the Chowmahalla Palace, on 11th October. The performance will begin at 5pm.

It is not Gulzar the lyricist, but Gulzar, the veteran Urdu poet who will be in the city in a one-of-its-kind event, Gulzar will team up with ghazal singer Jagjit Singh to take centre stage and mesmerize the city with some soulful melodies. Jagjit Singh belongs to the classical gharana of poetry, and Gulzar belongs to the modern jargon of blank verse and open-ended stream of thoughts - the show will be a bridge between the 2 genres.

About Jagjit Singh

Jagjit Singh is a prominent Indian ghazal singer. He and his wife, another renowned ghazal singer Chitra Singh, created the first ever successful duo (husband-wife) act in the history of recorded Indian music. Together, they are considered to be the pioneers of the modern ghazal singing. Jagjit Singh sings in Punjabi (his mother tongue), Hindi, Urdu, Bengali, Gujarati and Nepali. He was awarded Padma Bhushan (2003), the 3rd highest civilian honour, for his contribution to music by the Government of India.

He is considered to be the most successful ghazal singer of all time, in terms of both critical acclaim and commercial success, having made the genre synonymous with his name during a career spanning over 4 decades now. He is the only composer and singer to have composed and recorded songs written by an incumbent Prime Minister - Atal Behari Vajpayee, also a critically acclaimed poet - in 2 albums, Nayi Disha (1999) and Samvedna (2002).

He is also the first Indian composer, and together with Chitra Singh, the first recording artist in the history of Indian music to use digital multi-track recording for their (India's first digitally recorded) album, Beyond Time (1987).
