Ghazal Maestro Jagjit Singh
Jagjit Singh has made a name for himself by simplifying Ghazals for people who don’t understand the traditional lyrics. Today the audience for Ghazals has become worldwide.

His voice, a true gift of God, has the pain that an “Ashiq” feels after loosing his beloved, the love that a mother seeks for her child, the tranquility that a “Saaqi” delivers, the willing fear that a boy has when she walks in the room. There is absolutely no doubt that Jagjit Singh with his unique composing and singing style is the torchbearer of the survival of Ghazals in India.
