Pandit Jasraj

Pandit Jasraj is one of India's most esteemed vocalists. His 3 1/2 octave range coupled with his rich sonorous voice and subtle ornamentation of complex passages have won the popularity of audiences through out the world. Of particular note is his reintroduction of ancient Sanskrit texts to the singing of khayal, further enriching the content of his art. Khayal is a highly improvised style that is the predominant form of North Indian vocal music.

He is the leading exponent of the Mewati gharana (school) and performed for many years with his brother, Pandit Moti Ram, on All India Radio and at the court of Maharaj Jaiwant Singh. He has received many honors and awards including the prestigious title Padma Shree by the President of India and made numerous recordings and tours throughout India, Europe and the United States.
