Purshottam Das Jalota (9 September 1925 – January 18, 2011) was Indian classical and devotional music singer, best known for his bhajans. He was awarded the Padma Shri by Government of India, in 2004.[1]

Born in Phagwara, Punjab, he learnt Hindustani classical music from Master Ratan of Sham Chaurasia gharana[citation needed]. At the age of twenty four he shifted to Lucknow and started singing professionally. He gradually shifted to singing Bhajans and set to tune several Bhajans based on Raagdari Sangeet. He considered that this would propagate India’s rich cultural heritage as well as popularize classical music. He is the father of singer Anup Jalota. He died at the age of 84 on 18 January 2011
