Personal Quote:

For a few years after learning music, I did not sing, I only listened; I heard a lot of music of different kinds. This is an education which is as important as practicing music. The singer has to be a great thief. From each person take the best to create your own style.


He was awarded the Bharat Ratna, India's highest civilian honor, in 2008. See more »
