In pics: The Indian legends music lost




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.

Suchitra Mitra
Legendary Rabindra Sangeet exponent Suchitra Mitra passed away at the age of 86. Born in 1924, Suchitra Mitra had for six decades kept music lovers enthralled with her mellifluous rendition of Tagore songs, and her records and CDs top the popularity ratings even today. Daughter of litterateur Saurindra Mohan Mukherjee, she received her first lessons from eminent singer-composer Pankaj Mullick and then went to Santiniketan with a scholarship. Her singing s****s were sharpened under the guidance of experts like Shantidev Ghosh and Shailajaranjan Mazumdar. She made her first recording in 1945.

Bismillah Khan
Shehnai maestro Bismillah Khan was the third classical musician to be awarded the Bharat Ratna in 2001, the highest civilian honour in India and gained worldwide acclaim for playing the shehnai for more than eight decades. Though a pious Shi'ite Muslim, he was also, like many Indian musicians, regardless of religion, a devotee of Saraswati, and often played at Hindu temples, including the famous Vishwanath Temple in Varanasi, on the banks of the river Ganges.
