MUMBAI: Even before its release, the album Jeevan Marann Chhe Ek has become first of sorts. It is the first-ever album of Gujarati ghazals by Jagjit Singh and also the first non-film music album to be released by BIG Music.
BIG Music and Home Entertainment â€“ the Reliance ADAG Venture has signed a three album deal with Singh. The album Jeevan Marann Chhe Ek has a collection of Gujarati ghazals by him.
Says Singh, â€œPoetry and music are not constrained by any language. Instead, each language and region adds its own charm to both. I am happy that BIG Music has made an attempt highlighting the depth and range of Gujarati poetry. I am looking forward to many such interesting concepts with BIG Musicâ€.
BIG Music & Home Entertainment CEO Kulmeet Makkar says, â€œWe are thrilled at our association with Jagjit Singh. We were looking at doing something different in the music album market. And a Gujarati ghazal album looked exactly like the challenge we wanted. Jagjit jiâ€™s presence just made our decision easier. This album is also special as this is the first in series of the albums we will be releasing with Jagjit Singh.â€
