Pt. Jagdish Prasad
Pt. Jagdish Prasad (died July 18, 2011) was a Calcutta-based Hindustani classical vocalist of the Patiala Gharana.
Panditji had tremendous control over both melody (sur) as well as rhythm (lai) and could effortlessly perform both serious khayal and lighter genre of Hindustani music like thumri, dadra and tappa. Though Panditji hailed from the Patiala gharana, he sang in Purab style with equal prowess. With an impressive blend of technical mastery, appealing emotional expression, craftsmanship, and a high artistic sensibility, Jagdish Prasad wonderfully built on Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan Saheb's legacy.
