This is probably one of the most beautiful tributes we’ve come across in memory of the Late Jagjit Singh, the King of Ghazals. Sonia’s voice magically takes us back to the famous 1982 tour Jagjit and Chitra did. It’s almost like Sonia’s voice is being guided by Jagjit’s spirit – a very heartfelt and simple melody – with that 2012 touch to amp up the beat. Charkha Mera Rangla will be out on iTunes April 9th, just in time for Vaisakhi! This Punjabi Folk Smash-Hit was produced by sound extraordinaire Phat Kat!
