From New Kerala website:

Sunset of Indian music: artists on Bhimsen Joshi's death
New Delhi, Jan 24 : "The sun has set on Indian classical music", "an irreparable loss" were how noted singers and artists reacted to Bharat Ratna Pandit Bhimsen Joshi's death Monday but said his music would live on to be celebrated by generations.

"Jab mein suna, laga ki subah subah surya ast ho gaya. Bharat ka sangeet ka suraj doob gaya hai (When I heard about his death, I felt that the sun has set in the morning...the sun has set on Indian classical music)," eminent Hindustani classical singer Pandit Jasraj said reacting to the demise of the 88-year-old legend.

"I would like to remember him as my brother, guru...as my everything," he added.

Joshi passed away in a Pune hospital at the age of 88 Monday following old age related ailments.

Blessings.

An all time great has gone to God's mercy and left an irreparable void in the musical landscape of the earth. All I can say is that we were truly blessed to have been his contemporaries and to have lived whilst this incomparable song bird was serenading the world . Thank you Panditji, we shall remember you always.

I owe my introduction to Indian Classical music to Pandit Bhimsen Joshi. Other musicians have come and and other musicians have gone, but he alone remains the standard.

If they are not available online I'll try and get some of the obituary tributes in the Indian paperes posted when I canm.

Having seen his son Srinivas perform at Saptak at Allahabad, and seen his disciples performing at DLMC over the last few days, I can only say he still lives on and his influence will endure.
