Jagjit Singh Songs Bhajans
Singh, a Sikh, was born in the Punjab's Rajastan area. He began his musical studies at the Khalsa College Sr. Sec. School and pursued them at Khalsa College, Sriganganagar. He attained an arts degree and pursued post-graduate studies at Kurukshetra University in Haryana. He studied with Pandit Chhaganlal Sharma and Ustad Jamaal Khan. He began his professional singing and composing career for All India Radio in 1961. He moved to Mumbai in 1965 to try to establish himself as either a singer and/or composer in the massive Bollywood industry. It was hardly an auspicious beginning: he spent years writing and singing advertising jingles and eventually gained a slot doing playback singing in films. He met his future wife in 1967; they were married two years later. Though they performed as a duo, they were unable to record together until the middle of the '70s. Their debut album, The Unforgettables, was issued by HMV in 1977. Though they only sang together on two cuts, the single 'Baat Niklegi' became their first hit; it was celebrated for its juxtaposition of modern arrangements and the classical ghazal form. Though the following ghazals issued a year later did well, they paled in comparison to 1979's double album Come Alive in a Live Concert with Jagjit and Chitra Singh and 1981's Live in Concert at Wembley. 1981's Saath Saath and 1982's Arth -- both composed by Singh -- elevated their reputation to that of living legends. They are listed among HMV's best-selling soundtrack recording artists of all time. Singh's other film scores included Premgeet, Tum Bin, Sarfarosh, Dushman, and Tarkeeb.
