Overview for Colours Of Bhairavi
Pandit Bhimsen Joshi
Pandit Bhimsen Gururaj Joshi leads the renaissance of Indian classical music with utmost passion and dedication. Born on 4th February 1922 in the small town of Gadag, Karnataka, he is renowned for his unmatchable brilliance and charismatic personality. A burning passion for music has made him a living legend. It is this passion for music that urged him to run away from home and pursue musical studies after he heard the recordings of Abdul Karim Khan at a local store. After he returned home, he started his tutelage under the Sawai Gandharva (Pandit Rambhan Kundgolkar), who was himself a pupil of Abdul Karim Khan for 10 to 12 years. This rigorous training chiseled his already tuneful voice and his constant quest for ever domains enabled him to develop his own distinctive style laced with brilliance.
He excels in gamakar, meend, taankriya and at adapting interesting characteristics from other Gharanas. His rapid tans gliding through all the saptaks sends the listeners in raptures. He has been honoured by the Padamshree, Sangeet Natak Academy Award and the Padma Bhushan. Mastery over the soul of swar and raga makes him one of the most popular and dedicated artistes in the realm of Hindustani Shastriya Sangeet.
One of the most popular contemporary khayal singers, Pt. Jasraj belongs to the Mewati gharana. His sonorous voice effortlessly traveses over all three and half octaves, Pandit Jasraj¬s vocal are characterised by a blend of austere and opulent elements, projecting traditional music and an intense spiritual expression at once chaste and densly coloured .He has perfect diction, clarity of sur and command over all aspects of laya are other highlights of his music. He pays great attention to the choice of the composition and the words in it. This sensitivity together with his pure classical approach have given his music a lyrical quality which is the quintessence of the Mewati style of singing.His biggest contribution to Indian music is the simple rendition of raga while maintaing its grammar. He is also credited for creating an unique and novel jugalbandi based on the ancient system of moorchanas, between male and female vocalists, each singing their respective scales and different ragas at the same time. He has also devoted a lot of time and energy in encouraging and promting new talent. Born into a family which has given to Indian music four generations of outstanding musicians, the Mewati maestro, Pandit Jasraj had his initial grooming in music under his father, the late Motiramji. He started his career as an accompanist tabla player. He then underwent intensive tutelage under his elder brother and guru, the late Sangeet Mahamahapadhyaya Pandit Maniramji. He has been guided by his spiritual guru, the late Maharana Shri Jaiwant Singhji of Sanand. He has received numerous awards and titles, including Padmabushan, Sangeet Markand, Sangeet Natak Academy award and Rajiv Gandhi Award for professional excellence.
