Sangeet Samrat

His music is soothing and spellbinding. It has the power to transport his audience to the realm of the Divine. Minna Zutshi strings together Pandit Jasrajís striking notes.

ITíS a rich, sonorous voice and it comes like a gust of cool breeze on a hot, blistering day. Within a few minutes (it could very well be a nano-second or an hour or an eternity, as you lose track of time), you find yourself awash with peace, and your entire being is suffused with serenity. Your spiritual sojourn has started. No wonder, you are tuned to the soulful music of Pandit Jasraj, the noted vocalist of North Indian classical music. Photo by Pawan Sharma

HE Himalayan peaks are forbiddingly inviting. They donít make for an easy ascent, yet their grandeur is inspiring. However, for young, glamorous opera singer Anita Lerche, who had come all the way from Denmark, the Himalayan tryst was not only about sky-smooching mountains, it was also about discovering the music in the hills.

Mozart magic
M
