Deenga performing live on stage
DC, May 10, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio) Thir name, "Deenga",
literally means a small boat in Bangla language. They are six guys
sailing on an ocean of music. Meet the promising young Bengali folk-rock
fusion band from Kolkata.
Deenga’s members are influenced by different genres of music which is
reflected in their compositions. Deenga is very much influenced by
Bengal's folk and rural songs, and they rearrange those songs to create
their signature sound.
Their philosophy is to do simple music and spread peace and harmony.
Deenga’s first album published by Asha Audio in 2005 was titled "Bhese
Pori" (let's sail).
Formed in 2003 when six like minded professional musicians thought of
getting together and doing something on their own, Deenga are a pretty
well known band in today's Kolkata music circuit, which they attribute
to their belief and confidence on themselves and hard work, though they,
of course, feel there is still a long way to go. Their music is
sometimes about the present political scenario, love and emotions of
human heart, and the society we live in. "Nothing is compared to hard
work and dedication. Music flows from your heart so don’t be too
technical…it is feel that gives rise to good music" summarize Deenga
about the path to musical success.
