Jagjit Singh Ghazals Concert n BHUBANESWAR

The maestro came and charmed all and sundry. The packed-auditorium, on Friday evening, sat still savouring every moment, internalising every nazm of the ghazal king, Jagjit Singh, as he sat on the podium and rendered ghazals close to his heart.He started off with Chand Bhi Dekha a track from Hindi film Tarkeib and built up the mood with the teasing Kal Chaudhvi Ki Raat Thi.Making a departure from his quintessential serious style, he continued with the youthful Aag Ka Kya Hai, Pal Hi Pal Mein Lag Jati Hai.As the evening progressed, he went on to sing his most soul-stirring ghazals ably supported by his four accompaniments.The concert, jointly presented by Round Table India- Bhubaneswar Round Table-53 and Krupajal Group of Institutions, kicked off with presentations on the activities that the two organisations have been undertaking.Singh himself has been associated with Round Table India in the past and performed at Hyderabad and Chennai.
