I heard Amittabh sing several of Kishore Kumar’s evergreen hits and those of other top singers too, at a small get together in Kolkata. It was one of the most enjoyable evenings I have had in a long time and I was thrilled that he was able to fulfill my song requests. His love for music is evident when he sings and he simply commands the stage.

We were invited to a private gathering (prelude to the JALWA event, a couple of days later in Zurich, Switzerland).
The moment we heard his first song, we were hooked and have become his huge fans. I had the privilege to photograph Amittabh during his stay in Switzerland. Amittabh has a beautiful soul and is an amazing human being. We are looking forward to his next visit in Switzerland. Take care Amittabh.

I spotted the passion for music in Amittabh the very first time we met and in October 2017, I organized a musical event in Zurich, Switzerland as a tribute to Kishore Kumar where Amittabh was the solo singer. Ever since then, people have been urging me to bring him again. It was a super success and Amittabh is now a known name in Zurich.
Amittabh is much more than just a singer. To captivate an audience as a solo performer for close to two hours requires charisma and charm, both of which Amittabh possesses in abundance. I wish him unending success.

I heard Amittabh sing at an event in Zurich entitled Yaadon Ki Baarat. He was fun, approachable and he sang songs which touched everybody’s hearts. I am a dancer and he had me and the rest of the audience on their feet. He has the ability to really connect with the audience. It was a wonderful experience to collaborate with him on JALWA. We had a lot of fun and I hope it's just the start to many more opportunities to work together!
I handled the filming and videography for Yaadon ki Baarat and I enjoyed working with Amittabh immensely. He was appreciative, humble and grateful towards everyone and he is a very high-calibre artist. I wish him continued success!
Peter is a movie buff and an absolute technical genius when it comes to music, sound, photography and videography. A true Indophile!
I was part of the audience at both of Amittabh‘s performances in Zurich. I was very impressed not just by his voice but also in the way he keeps the audience thoroughly engaged. Everybody who attended the performances enjoyed it just as much as I did, this was clearly visible. Keep up the good work Amittabh - I have definitely become a fan and hope to see you perform in Zurich again. And again! I wish you even more success in the future.
I was lucky and fortunate enough to attend Amittabh’s rocking performance in Zurich last year. What an entertainer! He has the charm to pull a crowd together with his vivacity and melodious voice. It's a shame that I missed his performance at Jalwa in Zurich last month due to my relocation to Penang, Malaysia. Otherwise, wild horses would not have been able to keep me away. I look forward to having him perform in Malaysia one day. He can surely count on my attendance and that of my friends.

As huge music buffs, my octogenarian husband and I were delighted to be invited to an intimate Meet n Greet with Amittabh as a prelude to his grand performance at Jalwa in August 2018 in Zurich. We were transported back to the beautiful melodious era when Music was King and lyrics were touching. Amittabh sang many songs, going from strength to strength as the evening went on, and his spontaneous songs without accompanying music were simply unforgettable.
We had expected Jalwa to be a run of the mill song and dance performance. How wrong we were! With the first song, the evening took off like a rocket, reaching unexpected heights. Song and dance, solos and duets, professional and amateur numbers followed seamlessly complementing and enhancing each other. The audience rocked, clapped and cheered on the artists until it was time to part... as the whole hall sang and danced to the tune of ' never say goodbye','kabhi alvida na kehna'.
We left with a catch in our throats, rather flashed and bedazzled, ready to come back for more. Amittabh, come back soon!
