Bhimsen Joshi died yesterday.

Genius. One time alcoholic. Eccentric sometimes.

And what a effing voice.

Bharat Ratna Pandit Bhimsen Joshi will always be remembered for taking Hindustani classical music to masses through his rendering of bhajans (devotional songs)in classical style.

He was a legend of Hindustani classical and who can forget "Mile sur mera tumhara". Amazing voice!. May his soul rest in peace.

The below song (first song) was sung more than 50 yrs ago and I doubt if anybody can even come close to that.

No doubt.....he is a Genius...Real Genius!

Never saw him on stage sober. I remember hearing him in Modern School Auditorium, Barakhamba Rd. We as school kids had 3rs seat behind the maestro. He came late, and had a must-must jhoom in his walk to the baithak.

But, once he began; he kept us captivated for a full 2 hours.

A great singer , a voice that had genius and above all an outstanding person. His biggest contribution is his sawai gandharva music festival - in my opinion the best music festival today in this country. Not only is it his humble tribute to his guru ; it is a stepping stone to many young voices and the holy altar of excellence for seasoned musicians !

For all those serious about Indian classical music I STRONGLY RECOMMEND A VISIT ! There is a little bit of dance and Carnatic music, too.

Pandit Bhimsen Joshi died days ago, creating a void in the music community. Today, more than 40 artistes united to pay tribute to the master in the only way possible: through music. The daylong “Swara Shraddhanjali” saw young and old performers surpassing the boundaries of their gharana to pay homage to the doyen of Kirana Gharana.

The programme that began at 8 a.m. went on beyond 10 p.m. Be it Raghunandan Panshikar , a disciple of Kishori Amonkar of the Jaipur Gharana or Dhrupad singer Uday Bhavalkar, all the artistes mesmerised the audience. A note that reverberated through all the performances was the immense respect and gratitude that each artiste had for Bhimsen Joshi, the man who was a music university within himself.
