Clearly, if there is one place under the sun where nothing has been left undone, it has to be India – an ancient land with an absorbing history, a vibrant present and an opportunist future. And much of its enthralling galore has been because of its exquisitely talented pool of nationals who have constantly worked hard to help India stand tall in the world forum, be it in art, culture, music, business, politics, science, technology, philosophy or military. Talking specifically of music, the country has given the world some of the world-class singers who have redefined the field of music through their exemplary work and talent. Historically, Indian singers have succeeded in installing a unique style or character into their work, thus changing the panorama of Indian and world music completely. It is to these Indian singing legends that this section is committed – an incredibly large lot that has through their talent alone inspired a world way beyond their country’s borders. The Nightingale of India, Lata Mangeshkar, the man with a Golden voice Mukesh, the versatile hero Mohammad Rafi, the legendary genius Kishore Kumar, the Ghazal king Jagjit Singh, the teen idol Shreya Ghoshal, the melody genius Sonu Nigam, the superstar’s voice Udit Narayan – the list is interminable. Know in details about some of the greatest Indian singers, their life and works through this segment.
