Jeevan Maran Che Ek - Jagjit Singh (Gujarati Ghazals)

Watch the Album Launch on YouTube

With the release of his first Gujarati ghazal album ‘Jeevan Maran Chhe Ek’, Jagjit Singh has reasserted his position as a living musical genius of the entire Indian subcontinent. Multitudes of his fans across India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, for whom Gujarati is like Greek or Latin, are seeking out lexical aids to decipher the deep philosophical lyrics of Mareez, which Jagjit has rendered in simultaneously sombre and uplifting moods

In his journey of music and song, ghazal maestro Jagjit Singh has catered generously to the philharmonics. His beautiful renditions have always left the audience asking for more. However, it’s time for a change. Jagjit Singh has interestingly served us some new wine in a new bottle with his first ever Gujarati ghazal album, Jeevan Maran Che Ek. Not many know that the first song ever sung professionally as a playback singer by Jagjit Singh was a Gujarati song for a film titled Bahuroopi.

Singer & Music - Jagjit Singh

Lyrics - Abbas S. Vasi (Mareez)
