Jantra Audio Title

Jantra – Pandit Bhimsen Joshi

Jantra is a trust. When devotion is mixed with trust and any goal is achieved through that faith, then it is said that the work of Jantra is completed. By embracing Jantra we become more real and more complete.

In this album, through renditions of bhajans, Pandit Bhimsen Joshi has fully succeeded in establishing a link between from the heart of the devotee and the God, thus enabling the devotee to experience the supreme happiness.

Acknowledged as the leading light of the Kirana Gharana, Pandit Bhimsen Gururaj Joshi is a sheer musical marvel whose singing invariably provides listeners with a divine musical experience. Born in 1922 into a conservative Brahimin family in Gadag, Karnataka, Bhimsen Joshi displayed the signs of a musical genius from an early age. He ran away from home and started learning music at the age of 11 against his father’s wishes. But when his father become aware of Bhimsen’s talent in singing and his fervent talent in singing and his desire for knowledge in music, he made arrangements for him to learn under the guidance of Sawai Gandharva of Kundol, a pupil of Abdul Karim Khan.

He has been honored with numerous awards and titles such a Padma Shree and Padma Bhushan by the Government of India and the Sangeet Natak Akademi award amongst others.
