An NCPA Presentation

This thematic presentation has been designed to enable uninitiated listeners to enjoy and appreciate the rich raga legacy of Hindustani music by associating a particular raga with a corresponding raga-based film song. The song selection is based on melodies immortalised by the legendary playback singer-composer, Hemant Kumar Mukhopadhyay, popularly known as Hemant Kumar (1920-1989). Besides regaling audiences with melodies sung in his rich baritone voice, Kumar excelled in Rabindra Sangeet and went on to sing as well as compose for films in a number of languages. The list of his non-film songs is equally impressive. Sagnik Sen has been hailed as the voice of Hemant Kumar. Trained in music under his father, Swapan Sen, he has to his credit a large number of national and international performances of Hindi and Bangla film music, and Rabindra Sangeet. His rendition of the popular song, ‘Yeh nayan dare dare’ recently won ‘The Akademia Music’ award from Hollywood, in the category of best video cover song.
