  • The world of music would not be complete without ghazals. The world of ghazals would not be complete without Jagjit singh. It is sheer good fortune for music lovers of this age that such a maestro came along and not only transformed the ghazal but the entire genre of non film music. He successfully changed the vista of the ghazal to a whole new generation of music lovers thus changing the common mans home into a mehfil of ghazals Lata Mangehskar, singer

    He is able to communicate the ghazal because his voice is beautiful and so is his rendering. He presents each word in the context of the verse, like bringing to the ear something fragile, so that its intent is clear Gulzar, poet

    When words are given their proper musical meaning, it gives them new life, they are immortalized I have only written the words, he has ornamented them, dressed them, given them depth and shading, given musical voice to the poets concept Rana Sahri, poet

    Need we say anymore... We are truly blessed to have had Jagjit Singh in our lives and in order to celebrate his life and music we have invited his beloved student - Tauseef Akhtar to perform the maestros famous ghazals in the most intimate of settings.

  • Tauseef received his initial education in classical Indian singing from the renowned Late Pt. Govind Prasad Jaipurwale. It was only after the demise of the latter that the teenager Tauseef came under the able guidance and tutelage of the king of ghazals Jagjit Singh. Through him, Tauseef received invaluable training in not only ghazal recital but also vocal classical rendition.

    With his typically natural and effortless style of singing and a gifted soz in his mellifluous voice Tauseef s listeners cannot help but be impressed and carried away by his music and instantly connect with his warm and straight-from-the-heart rendition!

    A melodious voice begs no introduction. Tauseef Akhtar is among one of my more promising disciples. He thinks properly before composing and comprehends properly before rendering the shaayari (poetry). Just as Music has become well-ensconced in his nature, so has shaayari become an inseparable part of his mood.

    I am happy that he has sought his very own path in ghazal rendering. My blessings are with him! JAGJIT sINGH

    I mustve been a gawky teenager, all of 15 years my voice was changing from that of an adolescent to settle into adulthood. Jagjit Ji, then at the peak of his singing career, would keep busy - mostly pre-occupied with concerts and recordings of his various now legendary albums. Sensing that my training is perhaps not up to his desired level, Jagjit Ji lovingly ordered me to come daily during his recording sessions at Western Outdoor Studio - the haven where his hugely popular albums used to be recorded. This, I was later to realize, would prove a turning point during my tutelage the greatest boon for my career and training, for which I am to sit today and thank my fate eternally

  • Madhus have a long and established relationship with Jagjit Singh. Our grandfather, the Late Mr Bishandas Anand, back in the late 1960s heard of an unknown artist that had come over form India to perform in Nairobi. After meeting the young Jagjit Singh, our grandfather arranged a Mehfil at the Brilliant Hotel. It was the beginning of an enduring relationship and Jagjit Singh kept an association with our family ever since.

    I have been a fan of the man and his music throughout my life and I often remember after his concerts my friends, family and clients would always complain either about timings its either too early to eat before the concert and gets too late after or arent ghazal evenings supposed to be a late night affair? or the setting itself .. most of them wanting a more intimate experience..perhaps with a glass of scotch in hand!

    The Unforgettable concert will ensure that hospitality and entertainment are provided for you hand in hand. Great food, drinks served at your table throughout the performance, opulent surroundings and a world class artiste are the true recipe of a superb night out.

    Paying tribute to a legend is daunting but perhaps the job is made easier when you have the protg of the legend himself - Tauseef Akhtar rising to the occasion.
