Washington DC, Feb 7, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio) Utpalendu-da has passed away, leaving back a legacy and memories with millions of Bengalees across the world. I had a chance to meet Utpalendu-da in October of 2008 and vividly remember his inspiring words, and we recorded this interview in a casual setting. May his soul rest in peace. - Supratim Sanyal, WBRi.

WBRi Exclusive Utpalendu Chowdhury Interview Utpalendu Chowdhury is one of the most popular singers of the present genre. Utpalendu gathered his repertoire under the guidance of his father Nirmalendu Chowdhury, the legendary folk singer from Bengal and carries on his quest to know more intimately the splendors preserved by the teacher-to-disciple oral transmission. With a single-minded purpose he looks forward to popularizing the folk songs that he has inherited from his father and the rivers of Bengal.
