Chitra Singh launches Ghazal Maestros unreleased album with Universal Music India

MUMBAI: Remembering Jagjit Singh on his second death anniversary, Chitra Singh launched Ghazal Maestros’ unreleased album with Universal Music India.

The late Jagjit Singh’s album was presented with great pride by his wife, noted Ghazal singer Chitra Singh and leading music label, Universal Music India on 10 October.

Titled ‘The Voice Beyond’, the album includes seven of Jagit Singh’s unreleased, original compositions. The album was launched on the maestro’s second death anniversary at an event conceptualised by his wife Chitra Singh. Music and memories marked the evening which saw eminent personalities like veteran actor/politician, Shatrughan Sinha and director Subhash Ghai sharing anecdotes about the time spent with the singer.

The music fraternity came together to commemorate Jagjit Singh’s legacy. Creating a wave of nostalgia, a soulful medley of Jagjit Singh’s earlier hits sung by Anup Jalota, Deepak Pandit, Pandit Sanjeev Abhyankar and Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt stirred the audience.

Speaking on the occasion, Chitra Singh said, “If the album is successful in celebrating Jagitji’s music and the legacy created by him, then I am successful.  We wanted to pay tribute to his genius by releasing previously unheard tracks. As they are unreleased compositions, I am releasing them for him, as that is what he would have wanted as a gift to his million fans.”

Universal Music India VP marketing Sunil D’sa said, “We are proud to have the opportunity to launch the album of a true legend. Universal has always been a platform for talent. It will be exciting to see audiences react to the album, as we are sure Jagjit Singh’s Ghazals will create frenzy among his fans even today.”

The album The Voice Beyond will be available in physical and digital formats at all leading music stores.
