An Emotional Musical Evening Paid A Heartwarming Tribute To Rabindranath Tagore
In almost all his writings and musical compositions, we can realize how much Rabindranath Tagore was fond of nature.
Lately, a soulful musical event has been organized to explore various shades of monsoon and love, much like the way Tagore used to create lyrics and tunes for music written by him.
To make the event a mesmerizing experience for the different audiences, the song arrangements meet the tastes of today’s times.
At the same time, it holds the distinctiveness of the genre of Rabindra Sangeet.
Noble singers like Paulomi Mazumder, Sraboni Sen and Prabuddha Raha enthralled the audience at ICCR, Kolkata in the program titled ‘Swapne Amar Prem Bahurupe Barbar’.
Rini Biswas has won the hearts of the crowd with her excellent performance.
Soaking in the spirit of the current climatic mood and swinging in a razzle dazzle barish wala season as described, experienced and visualized by Tagore, the music evening paid the ultimate tribute to Gurudev.
While Surjit Das on Esraj, Nandan Dasgupta played the keyboard, Swapan Adhikari and Tapan Adhikari worked on the tabla, percussion and other instruments were excelled upon, and the concept was taken forward by Prabuddha Raha.
Although Tagore wrote successfully in all literary genres, he was a poet at first. Among his fifty and odd volumes of poetry are Manasi (1890) [The Ideal One], Sonar Tari (1894) [The Golden Boat], Gitanjali (1910) [Song Offerings], Gitimalya (1914) [Wreath of Songs], and Balaka (1916) [The Flight of Cranes].
