BABUL SUPRIYO

 

Babul SupriyoThey say when there is music within your heart, it has to be heard.

So was the case with Supriyo Baral, aka Babul Supriyo , who gave up a lucrative job at the Standard Chartered bankback to what he loved and did best - singing. Getting to where he stands now, was of course, no easy task. That probably explains his easy, unassuming disposition.Today at the age of 30 he is being regarded as one of the most promising talent around. He is the voice behind the nation's current heartthrob (Hrithik Roshan). With superhit song - Dil ne dil ko pukara from Kaho Naa…Pyaar Hai he never looked back.He shot to fame with Dhai Akshar Prem Ke , where he renders all Abhishek Bachchan's numbers. He has also landed Chori Chori Chupke Chupke, Hum Tum and has cut a private album with Alka Yagnik, Khoya Khoya Chand.

SAUGATA GANGULY
 

A sarod player in tune with changing times, a diehard follower of tradition, Sougata Ganguly is, however not a stick-in-the-mud. A graded artist and regular performer of All India Radio, and Television of Kolkata, and armed with a post-graduate degree in Indian Classical (instrumental) music, this young and bubbly sarod player was drawn into music at a very early stage of life. Coming from a family where music was a way of life – his ancestors were all well known sarod and tabla players – he honed his skill under his grandfather Pandit Shyam Kumar Gangopadhyay. He also learnt sarod from Pandit Buddhadev Das Gupta, the late Bimal Mukherjee and Ustad Ali Akbar Khan Saheb.

Sougata was recipient of many prestigious awards including Suramani by Sur-Sringar-Samsad , Mumbai and Central and State Music Academy. He secured first rank in his post graduation in music. Having performed in numerous classical concerts all over India, Sougata does not twitch his nose at the mention of light music, unlike many classical musicians like him. He is a keen observer of the changing trends in film music and has even honed his skills in western music. He recently scored background music in several tele-serials like Astha , Shudhu Tomari Janya and provided music direction in feature film Neel Nirjane and tele-film Int-Kath-Itihas . The motive he says, was rather to drive home the one point that one can - and one should have rational outlook on the different styles of music. Sougata says his spirits had lifted a few notches when Ustad Ali Akbar Khan Saheb attended his concert and appreciated his performance. After all, the onus of saving classical music from losing its footing lies with the young generation.
