Default Full Life Story: Pandit Bhimsen Joshi (Photos..)



Pandit Bhimsen Joshi
Pandit Bhimsen Joshi's death marks the end of an era in Indian classical music. We pay a tribute to some of India's legendary singers and instrumentalists.

Music maestro Bhimsen Joshi breathed his last on January 24, 2011. The veteran vocalist and Bharat Ratna was the last of the titans of Hindustani classical music and a rare genius who could transcend the mundane and transport his audience to the sublime with his gifted voice.

What made him arguably the most popular Hindustani music vocalist of the current times was his impassioned renditions with a powerful and penetrating voice that showcased the aesthetic majesty of the 'Kirana' gharana of which he was the celebrated exponent, as also the eloquent expression of light classical, devotional and the popular variety.

Movie bhajans
Panditji also sang two bhajans for Amol Palekar's 'Ankahee' in 1985. He sang a duet with Pandit Jasraj from an early 70s film named 'Birbal My Brother'. The song is based on the traditional Malkauns bandish titled 'Rang raliyaan karat sautan ke sang'.
