Dr.Bhupen Hazarika's Sangeet & Kailas Patel
Late Kailas Patel marrying into an Assamese family began to appreciate and admire musical culture of Assam. Eventually, Kailas with the collaboration of Dr. Bhupen Hazarika and his brothers and sisters produced a CD of songs with his wife Ruby titled ‘Nijaraparor Sur’.
In his life time Kailas always wanted to capture the lilting tunes and lyrics of Assamese folk songs in records and tapes through which this rich musical heritage could be preserved. His untimely death deprived Assam of his desired contributions towards the preservation of Assamese cultural heritage. However, after elapse of time, Ruby Patel with her brothers and sisters and their third generation progeny collected Dr. Bhupen Hazarika’s popular choruses and recorded in their original tunes and music with the help of up and coming established talented musicians in a CD titled ‘Rode Puabor Karone’ (to bask in the sun) to fulfil Kailas’s dreams.
The sale of proceeds of this CD will be partly donated to the Nilakanta & Shatipriya Hazarika trust and managements of two Primary Schools of poverty stricken, unfortunate children of Panikhaity in Assam which have been managed by Ruby Patel for the last 3 years through contributions of generous public.
We hope that the public will enjoy these songs and buy the CDs to help Ruby Patel for the worthy cause. Happy listening to ‘Rode Puabor Karone’.
