Singing voices from across the border – II

It is rightly said, music knows no boundaries or barriers. The other day, I chanced upon one more voice from across the border via You tube . It is Alvin Thomas Jacob paying tribute to the legendary Ghazal king Jagjit Singh. . I listened to three songs / ghazals originally sung by the maestro :

. Hothon se chhoo lo tum….

. Tum ko dekha to yeh khayal aya ….

. Chitthi na koi sandesh……

-rendered by this upcoming singer and the striking similarity with Jagjit’s voice and style simply left me enthralled.

It would suffice to google the name of the singer to reach the link !


  1. will do that - google him for the link.

    the three songs by the way are really good

  2. ....and please let me know, how you liked them Thanks !

    1. yes you were right - the similarity is quite something

  3. It's always good to hear songs, specially from this genre!

  4. I have heard his songs! The lyrics he writes are commendable! so true! :)
