    Career beginnings

    Pandit Jasraj is a much acclaimed artiste looming large in the present-day horizon of Indian Classical vocal music. Endowed with a marvellous voice, Pandit Jasraj has the rare ability to control its reach and richness in a manner essentially his own. Born at Hissar in 1930, Pandit Jasraj inherited his musical propensities from his father, Pandit Motiram of the Mewati tradition. But it was his eldest brother, Pandit Manfram, who groomed Jasraj in the true gurushishya parampara. Pandit Jasraj's style of singing is marked by commurticative alap, imaginative bol-taan, playful sargam and a variety of sprightly, cascading 'taan' patterns. Pandit Jasraj's presentation of bhajan is marked with devotional fervour.
