BIG Music inks 3 album deal with Jagjit Singh


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 – 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, “Poetry 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 Music”.


BIG Music & Home Entertainment CEO Kulmeet Makkar says, “We 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 ji’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.”
