Pandit Jagdish Prasad(1937-2011)

It is with deep regret that ITC SRA announces the passing of Pandit Jagdish Prasad on July 18, 2011. Jagdish ji had been hospitalised about 2 weeks ago and passed away at a nursing home in Kolkata at 9.30 am.

Pandit Jagdish Prasad was initially groomed under the guidance of his father Pandit Badri Prasad, who was the court musician of the former principality of Raigarh, Madhya Pradesh. Later he was under the tutelage of none other than legendary artiste Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan of Patiala gharana. Under the tutelage of both these Gurus, he enriched his repertoire in both classical and semi-classical music and could sing khayal and thumri with equal command.

He joined ITC-SRA in 1977. A gifted musician, he performed throughout the country and abroad with the ITC-SRA team. He left the Academy in 1984 and later joined Khairagarh University in Madhya Pradesh as a lecturer. He continued to serve the cause of music and performed all over the world.
