Come February 8, the Global Indian Music Academy (GIMA) will bring together the Indian music and film fraternity for a tribute concert held in fond memory of the late ‘Ghazal King’ - Jagjit Singh. The musical evening titled ‘Jagjit Singh -Yaadon Ka Safar’ which also marks his 71st birth anniversary is a special tribute to celebrate his musical legacy.

 

The many dimensionsof the maestro - singer, writer, composer, music director, activist and a philanthropist - are not unknown. An active member of GIMA who also mentored most of its music initiatives, Jagjit Singh always supported and inspired new talent. This intimate tribute concert put together by GIMA and the Indian music fraternity is an effort to celebrate his ‘musical journey’ - his iconic legacy and unmatched contribution to music, through performances dedicated to him by friends and colleagues.

 
Renowned poet and lyricist Nida Fazli along with well-known celebrities like Javed Akhtar, Shabana Azmi, Mahesh Bhatt and Dia Mirza who shared a special bond with him will be seen sharing personal anecdotes.



Speaking on the occasion, his wife, Chitra Singh, said, “I am filled with a deep sense of pride and joy that the music fraternity is coming together to remember and honour my husband on his 71st birth anniversary. The tribute concert has my blessings and support. My family and I look forward to a nostalgic night embracing his memory.”

 

Also slated to be present at the tribute concert are Ghulam Ali, Ustad Rashid Khan, Anup Jalota, Bhupinder and Mitali Singh, Talat Aziz, Suresh Wadkar, Hariharan, Dr. L. Subramanium and Kavita Krishnamurthy, Kailash Kher, Hans Raj Hans, Shafqat Amanat Ali, Shaan, Kunal Ganjawala, Richa Sharma to name a few.

 

A recipient of the ‘Padma Bhushan Award’, Jagjit Singh won hearts world over with his soulful voice, inimitable rendition and timeless music. Credited for the revival and popularity of Ghazals, he was responsible for single-handedly changing the course of music by infusing the age-old genre of classical Ghazals with modern instrumentation while preserving its soul and purity.
