Citizens for Peace hosted a Peace Concert where Jagjit Singh presented some of his poignant renderings on January 27, 2009 at the Birla Matushri Auditorium, Mumbai. Beginning with the appropriate "Main na Hindu na Musalmaan, mujhe jeene do", he kept his audience enthralled with the melodious music and lyrics signifying that we are all one. Moving on to the more popular romantic and film songs, he performed his famous "Yeh daulat bhi le lo" and "Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi" to a captivated audience. While Jagjit Singh's voice kept the audience in a trance, the jugalbandhi of his accompanists on the tabla, flute, violin, electric guitar and dholak was what stole the show.
Citizens for Peace initiated the concert with a strong belief that there is an urgent need to share our concerns and spread the message of peace and respect. Attended by approximately 800 people, the event is one such effort by Citizens for Peace to foster a more humane and peaceful society.
