A voice of God – Jagjit Singh


Voice of God- Jagjit Singh

Many people in Western cultures believe that profession of the Devil is not other than that of Musician. Some says “Devil has the magic and holds invisible powers, so do a musician who strings waves in the air and creates a magic.” I strongly believe with lot of evident experience the similar kind of magic in the music of Mr Jagjit Singh. Myself have been sacred of such an artiste who surpassed the magic of God in his own given vicinity of music.

I’ve learnt that Mr Singh is creating this magic aesthetically contrasting from classes to masses. He strongly does believe in great public’s emotion and making connections with mass audiences, understanding the emotional mechanism of humankind. Appealing to large number of audiences from young to elder ones, touching the maximum number of people and connecting to them compassionately. I am listening to this legend since my childhood and grown up feeling and living his music. Whenever I used to shop for some music I used to locate many excuses or reasons to buy his music, sometimes awkwardly starts appreciating his art among friends who don’t even know about what music stands for. I do agree that I don’t call myself one and only connoisseur for this art, but do have some knacks and good nose for it.

Being an outstanding singer who constantly use in-depth knowledge of music, ragas, khyals and take care of all kind of parameters not to adulterate the soul of the song or thought of the poet. He has rendered all the leading poet of all times and in many languages, to name a few Mirja Ghalib, Shiv kumar Batalvi (Punjabi), Bulleh Shah, Ghulam Farid, Kabir, Saint Nanak, Meera, Kalidas, Soordas, Sudarshan Faakir, Qateel Shifai, Muzaffar Warsi, Meer Taqi Meer, Zauq, Ameer Minai, Jigar Moradabadi, Maulana Hasrat Mohani, Ibn-e-insha, Gulzar, Javed Akhtar and list goes on and on. Singing from the Traditional, conventional poets to modern, contemporary poets, hymning the sufi writings of bhakti rass saints and nobles. Compassing in every manner of traditional and sophisticated music, including some foot taping Punjabi songs, classical renditions in various ragas etc. He became such a unique artiste who never cared about the trends of the outside world, created his own world of music apart. Reckoning millions of listeners, fans, lovers from across the globe falling in that world of music where he is the only creator (God). What astonishes is that, artiste who is enjoying his early works, never paused or laidback but appeared sincere, incessant creator of innumerable melodies.

Nowadays when technology has been flawlessly adapted daily lives and people come up with virtual communities and fan clubs makes easier to discuss, share tête-à-tête beliefs, thoughts and ideas. Priorydejs.com is one of the examples of such phenomena reaching to the excellence of creating an event for widespread people with uncommon savours of music.
