On the last day of Zephyr 12– Orissa Engineering College’s annual fest, the crowd was great; buzzing with all the life and little did we know that we were in for a musical surprise.
Suraj Jagan had come down to perform in the fest’s finale night. Boy, what a performance it was!
A very old name in the music scene, Suraj Jagan was one of those individuals who has seen it all, from the Indipop crazy scene of the ‘90s till today. From those times he has been working on ad jingles, performing with an indie band and slowly carving a niche for himself in the music industry.
Today he is a name to reckon with, in an industry which has seen a lot formidable talent crossing its doors. His latest hit number is the title track from the movie Ishaqzaade.
It was his first time here in Odisha. Unsurprisingly, he rocked the crowd and had it swinging to his command. He sang some very famous numbers from Rock On, No One Killed Jessica, Shor in the City and many more. For 2 long hours, he held the OEC students in a shamanistic grip. It definitely felt like as if he was the shaman and the listeners his minions. Magic and aura reverberated through guitar strings, drums and Suraj Jagan’s voice gripping the newly constructed auditorium and its audience in trance.
So now it’s over to the photographs to give a peek into what all you missed in the case you could not make it to this amazing show.
Did you know that Suraj Jagan has a unique claim to fame in Bollywood? He has sung a track called Zeehrelay from the movie Rock On which apparently is the first Death metal song ever used in a Hindi film.
