Jagjit Singh (1941 - 2011) , one of India's best known singers passed away this week. The world will remember him for popularizing the musical genre of ghazals in India. Hindus will miss him for his contribution to Indian devotional music, especially his Krishna bhajans, Ganesha mantras and Rama chants.

Singh took to religious music pretty late in life but his smooth and sonorous God-gifted voice lent a silken touch to the bhajans he sang and the meditative and relaxing quality of his mantra chants enthralled all. He not only sang but also composed the music for many Hindu hymns, including bhajans, kirtans, and aartis during his lifetime.

Today, we pay a tribute to this legendary singer with a selection of the best CDs of devotional music sung in Hindi and Sanskrit by Jagjit Singh. These compilations will certainly figure among your favorite music collections with lots of hummable hymns accompanied by some of the most relaxing music you've ever heard... Go to the CD List
