On 5th July, Charanjit Singh left the physical space of the world. But his soul lives on through his music. TBI pays him a tribute.

On 5th July 2015, one of the least appreciated music maestros of India, Charanjit Singh, died a quiet death. He was the silent beat and tune to the songs many of us grew up with. He was that session musician, playing the keyboard or the guitar, who gave Bollywood some of its greatest pieces. He is also said to have brought in Acid House Music to India. Well, relive those days through his 10 greatest pieces. Happy tripping.
