Jashn-E-Ghazal is a Mushaira organised at Nehru Centre where you get to listen to a gathering of shayars from all over the subcontinent. The term Mushaira refers to a gathering of poets who recite ghazals and other compositions.
The event has been organised as a tribute to ghazal singer Jagjit Singh by his close associate tabla player Abhinav Upadhyay who has toured with Singh, extensively. A 70-show tour had been planned by Singh last year, which was to culminate with this event.
From this year, the Mushaira will become an annual event. The one-and-half-hour programme will feature ghazals by some of Singh's favourite musicians including Nida Fazli, Nawaz Deobandi, Anjum Rahbar, Mansoor Usmani, Waseem Barelvi, Naseem Nikhat, Manzar Bhopali and Rajesh Reddy.
