Through history, artistes who have left the most indelible imprints on the sands of time have been the innovators, the ones who have dared to strike their own paths, to explore possibilities, stretch the seams of what is believed to be sacrosanct and holy. Pandit Jasraj is an innovator-an artiste who will be remembered and emulated by future generations for his contributions to musical thought.

Pandit Jasraj rose to stardom in the seventies, offering a totally new approach to classicism-arresting, haunting melody, soft, velvety tonality, delicate, filigree like clusters of ornamentations, sensual languor in phrasing and an overall sheen of romanticism. It captured the imagination of anew generation of listeners who were alienated by the robustness of the classical approach.

And now, into the new millennium, Padma Vibhushan Pandit Jasraj has opened up what can be a new dimension to raga music. He has merged classical values and structures with the rich spiritual ethos and literature of India. He is doing what was done for Carnatic music many generations ago. If a future for spiritual art music emerges in India, musicians and listeners will have to remember Pandit Jasraj for being one of the significant pathfinders. He has raised the Bhajan and the musical genre, which enhances music itself and infuses life into the mystical lyrics of the past. Millions of Indians today owe their basic exposure to Sanskrit texts to Pandit Jasraj.

The maestro has a gift for raising the energy of a space gradually, delicately, into a swaying crescendo of devout passion. He dedicated the session to compositions in praise of Krishna.
