The reigning monarch of Indian Classical Music, Sangeet Martand Pandit Jasrajji is renowned over the world, not only as a legendary artist, but as an ultimate guru. Like a lamp that lights another, Pandit Jasrajji has passed on the radiance of his own music to as many students as have been able to reach his high expectations. In his name, he has founded several institutions, including the Pandit Jasraj Institute of Music (PJIM) based in New York, New Jersey and Pittsburgh (www.pjim.org) as well as the Pandit Jasraj Music Foundation in Vancouver (http://pjsomfvancouver.webs.com/). In particular, the Pandit Jasraj Institute for Music Research, Artistry and Appreciation- the Mewati Gurukul has reached amazing heights as an institute to propagate Indian Classical Music in practice, performance and theory in the U.S.A. This institute is run by one of the premier disciples of Pandit Jasrajji- Pandita Tripti Mukherjee. Besides her already illustrious performing career, she is a loving and caring guru to wide range of musical shishyas- the next generation of the Mewati Gharana.

Thus, through inspiration from the above achievements, a landmark concert to mark the birthday of Pandit Jasrajji in Toronto titled the "Legend Turns 80" was planned by Shri Amit Arya, Smt. Nimmi Papneja and Smt. Rashmi Sharma. This concert was on October 31st, 2010 at the Living Arts Centre and was attended by over 1200 people. The proceeds of this concert were given to AIM for SEVA, a charity which provided for education of children in impoverished areas of India. This concert marked the beginning of this landmark venture in Canada to promote Indian arts and culture- the Pandit Jasraj Institute of Music Toronto.

In July 2011, the Pandit Jasraj Institute Toronto became a not-for-profit corporation in Ontario, Canada.

Classes commenced as of January 2011 in Mississauga, Ontario. For more information, please email pjimtoronto@pjim.org
