Indra Mohan pays tribute to TagoreCultural Correspondent
Folk singer-researcher Indra Mohan Rajbonshi expresses his devotion for Nobel Laureate poet Rabindranath Tagore by releasing two albums- one featuring Tagore songs another featuring his original songs dedicated to Tagore.
The albums are Shardhashato Janmautsabey Shrodhyanjali, featuring Tagore songs, and Dersho Bachhar Agey, featuring original songs composed by Rajbonshi as his tribute to Tagore on his 151st birth anniversary.
‘Though my passion is performing traditional music, Rabindranath is someone who always sits on my soul. I have always been fascinated by his timeless creations, especially the evergreen songs. I also sing Tagore songs in typical style for my own pleasure. But, it is a pity that I took a lot of time to express my love for the great bard,’ Indra Mohan Rajbonshi, told New Age.
About the albums, Indra Mohan said that the Shardhashato Janmautsabey Shrodhyanjali contains 15 timeless Tagore songs having different themes. Remarkable songs of the album are Ei monihaar amay, Bhalo jodi basho shakhi, O amar desher mati, Bhalobeshey jodi shukho nahi, Anandolokey mangalalokey, Ami jeney shuney bish korechhi paan, Aji Bangladesher hridoy hotey and others.’
‘As expression of my passion for the great bard I wrote and composed 40 songs glorifying Rabindranath Tagore, of which a selected 15 songs have been included in the album Dersho Bachhar Agey,’ he added.
The songs of the album are Dersho bachhor agey, Shardhashato janmautshabe pranam tomay, Oi jey udiroley notun rabi, Tumi bolo kobey amar hobey, Aloye dipto kirti tomar, Bolo keno rahi rahi, Phutechhile ekti kushum, Pachishe Baishakhey eshey and others.
‘I’ve tried to follow Tagore’s lyrics and composition styles while composing these songs,’ Indra Mohan Rajbonshi said.
He hopes that the songs will be well accepted by the Tagore devotees.
