8th February will mark 77th birth anniversary of the man who made Ghazals synonyms with romance in India. On this special occasion, a seven cities musical concert has been planned to pay tribute to the Maestro starting with Mumbai on 8th.
A special pack of a beautiful coffee table book, a DVD of never seen before footage from his Paris concert and a documentary called Kaagaz Ki Kashti based on Jagjit Singh‘s life, made by Brahmanand Singh will be launched that day for the fans of Jagjit Singh.
The documentary also has people like Gulzar Sahab, Subhash Ghai and Jagjit Singh’s wife chitra sharing anecdotes about the maestro’s life.
“While Jagjit was a man of depth and gravitas, he never took himself seriously. This is a small effort to pay a humble tribute to him. The book celebrates his life, music, success, failure, the pain and personal tragedies in all its glory, told through photographs and unheard of anecdotes”, said Bharmanand Singh, who is behind this effort to organize the 7 cities musical concert.
The evening is aimed to recreate and reinterpret the maestro’s immortal, soulful and rare ghazals celebrating and bringing out the very essence of the magic created by Jagjit Singh.
