It will not be out of place to mention here that as early "as the mid-60s HMV, the name that SaReGaMa was then known as, was the first recording company ever to bring out a song recording of Jagjit Singh - the ghazal was "Saaqiya hosh kahan tha..." that he sang in his own inimitable style. And the rest, as they say, is history -yes, His Story! Because since then there has been no looking back for this prolific singer and our company SaReGaMa as we have been with the maestro through his thick and thin, through his entire musical journey. Needless to say that we therefore pride ourselves in possessing the best song renderings of this great master - Jagjit Singh! Long live the ghazal king!
For thousands of sensitive souls allover the world, Jagjit Singh stands for catharsis. There is no other voice, which can sing out the notes of emotions deep within the recesses of our hearts quite like him. Listening to him is like an emotional release, almost therapeutic in nature. It is said that, an artist is one who can express the unexpressed feelings of the masses. If that is true, Jagjit Singh is an artist-par-excellence by the very definition. His deep voice holds the key to perhaps every emotion locked within us.
