Bhakti (Live in Trinidad-1)

In a trip to Trinidad in 1989, Chitraji & Jagjitji gave several concerts. These were released as a two set CD albums and LPs. One interesting aspect of these albums is that the first CD is a Hindu devotional where as the second CD is an Islamic devotional. Later, both these albums were released separately under different names. The Hindu devotional album was released as "Bhakti". The Islamic devotional was released under the name "Chirag".

I will upload songs from the first volume today in two back-to-back posts. The second volume will be uploaded next week. Here is the first set of songs from the first volume...

Birha Da Sultan - A Punjabi Album

Shiv Kumar Batalvi who died at the tender age of 36 in 1973 was a noted Punjabi romantic poet. His songs touched many people’s hearts as they delved into pangs of pathos, heightened passions, agony of separation, and ecstasy of fulfillment. In 1967 he was honored with the Sahitya Akademi Award for his popular verse play that became an instant epic. Thus at 21, he became the youngest recipient of the coveted award. The play was based on an ancient legend of Puran Bhagat. That work “Loona”, published in 1965 when he was 19, is now considered a modern masterpiece of Punjabi literature.

It is only appropriate that Jagjitji chose Batalvi’s work for his first Punjabi album. The songs that created a new genre in Punjabi literature have been given to life, appropriately, in the vibrant and unique modernistic approach of Jagjitji and Chitraji. I am uploading these 10 beautiful songs written by Batalvi in two back-to-back posts. Here is the first set of these songs…

Ek Baar Kaho (1980)

Jagjitji sang only one song in this film. But it is a thing of lasting sheer beauty. This song he sang along with Aarti Mukerjee appears piecemeal throughout the movie, some six or seven times. Several albums published it as a duet with and without dialogues. The one that includes dialogues is about 20 minutes long. I am uploading the duet version without dialogues in the first post. Many other albums released most of this song by separating male and female portions as two songs. I am uploading these in the second post.

These songs came either from CD collections or from a DVD. Whereas the quality of the songs from CD is very good, I feel that the quality from the DVD could have been a tad better.

Now, for the songs in the first post...

Concluding Songs from "Ek Baar Kaho (1980)"...

The following two solo versions are already in the duet uploaded in the first post. Because many albums carry these as two separate solos, I am uploading these here.

Aakrant

For this Zahira starrer released in 1973, music was composed by Jagjitji. Unfortunately, I don't have a single song from this album to share with you. I am requesting members to share any songs they may have from this album. Thank you.

Concluding Shabads from "Man Jeetai Jagjeet (Gurbani)" - A Punjabi Devotional Album...

This post contains a lengthy shlok (sholok). It is over 27 minutes of duration. Therefore, I have to split it into three parts. To access the shlok, you have to upload all three parts. Either one or two parts will not work.

Here is the shlok...

Come Alive - Vol. 1

This 1979 concert was originally released as two LPs. Each LP had six ghazals in it. Later it was released in cassettes and CDs. After a while it was released as one CD with eight ghazals selected from the 12.

I will upload ghazals from the first volume in two back-to-back posts here today. The second volume will come next week. This album is one of the liveliest of Chitraji & Jagjitji. Especially when Jagjitji sings "Sarakti Jaaye" the whole pandemonium breaks loose.

Here is the first set of ghazals from volume one...

Concluding Ghazals from "Come Alive - Vol. 1"...,

Here are the rest of the ghazals from this crowd pleaser. Pay attention especially to the ghazal "Sarakti Jaaye". When Jagjitji sings this ghazal he brings down the entire house, at once boisterous and noisy. Love it...

Here are the ghazals...
