Amar Biya Hobe Shaadi Hobe: Complete Shadi Audio Songs MP3 Download Collection

A Hindu bride during traditional wedding ceremony

Image via Wikipedia

Bengali weddings, both Hindu and Muslim weddings, have many rituals in common among a multi-day ceremony that brings joy for an extended time to the typically equally extended families of the bride and the groom.

The Ashirbad phase where elders bless the soon-to-be wed bride is rapidly taking on an added Western practice of the groom presenting the bride with a "wedding ring".  Subsequently, the bride and the groom's families separately apply turmeric on their bodies (perhaps to ward off diseases since turmeric is a proven antiseptic), followed eventually by the actual shaadi / bie (wedding) ceremony. After that, the bride is welcomed to her new home by the grooms family, and the bride and the groom live happily forever.

These, and many other beautiful events, take place over many days.

Popular wedding songs (biyer gaan / shaadi gaan) entrenched in deep roots of folk music are sung by well wishers and family members, often in chorus, all through these days - especially in rural Bengal.

Thanks to the age of the internet, many such songs are now available online for MP3 download via our affiliate Bengali audio song download service - click here to listen to free previews and download the Shadi songs and related Biyer Gaan and of course Shehnai tracks >

Brownface Gunna - The Talented Canadian-Guyanese/West-Indian Rapper From Toronto

[BROWNFACE GUNNA]Germantown, Maryland, Jan 13, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio) In life you have to accept the good and the bad, one can’t exist without the other. This is the philosophy Brownface Gunna, a young, talented rapper/producer hailing from Toronto’s west end, lives by. And he emulates it across the board from his laidback demeanor to the music that he makes.

The Flush (MP3 Download) »

Brownface’s style is mood music. It switches between angry and upbeat and everything in between based on the type of mood he is in and what he’s going through in life at that moment. The versatility he brings in his music keeps him and his audience anything but bored.

With a fast flow atop a booming bass, Brownface Gunna delivers a classic hip-hop banger with his latest release, “Big Dreams”. The track has caught on like rapid fire overseas where it remained in the No. 1 spot in Euro DJ Leagues for four weeks straight.

“It just came to me, there was no direct thought process behind it, I’m always dreaming” says the 22-year-old rapper who hails from Toronto’s Rexdale community. “It’s all about taking your destiny in your own hands and chasing whatever you seek out of life.”

[BROWNFACE GUNNA]After laying down the track, which was produced by long-time collaborator J. Freedom, Brownface quickly envisioned shooting the video in the ultimate location for big dreamers: The Big Apple. And that’s exactly what he did. Hooking up with MMVA-winning video director, David Cropper, Brownface brought his vision to reality. The video was shot between Brooklyn and Times Square and has helped generate even more attention to the single, garnering thousands of views on YouTube in just a couple of weeks.

With songs like “Big Dreams” Brownface connects to his audience in the same way rappers like Jay-Z, Nas and Twista did with him in the 90s. His songs tell stories of a young man on the come up, who goes through the rollercoaster of life. “[My music is] more serious between the lines, than up front in your face,” he explains. “It’s music people can relate to cause it about people & life.”

To date, Brownface has release two mixtapes, The Grizzy and The Green Harvest. Brownface Gunna’s third project, The Flush, features “Big Dreams” which is now available on itunes »
