MuZik StreeT
Kolkata Bangla Rock Blues Fusion Band

MuZik StreeT as a band was born at Asansol, West Bengal, India. The initial line up contained 7 members and then as of now they have concreted down to 5 (the usual stuff)! Music as a full time career option was not really appreciated by guardians of the band members, yet overcoming all odds and obstacles the band is still alive and rocking since the past 5 years. In this journey they have had some hindrances but music was to win all of them and that is exactly what happened! UIT, Burdwan was the first competition that they appeared in and guess what, they won! To add to that the band at that point in time was a mere 7 days old group! This was followed by a series of events like Muzik Street was ranked finalists in Band-E-Mataram II (Kolkata). After the talent hunt, the band was covered by the media, including Aamar 106.2 FM, Tara Muzik, S-FM 93.5, Sangeet Bangla and others. Till date the band has performed live in places like Kolkata, Siliguri, Midnapur, Maldah, Durgapur, Burdwan, Asansol and other places in West Bengal.

THE HAND THAT ROCKED THE CRADLE RULED THE WORLD
by Shoumika Ganguli

Shoumika Ganguli - Poetess - Washington Bangla RadioThe poem is dedicated to all the mother's around the world. Ma is the first word spoken by a new born baby. If there is anyone in the world whom a person should go to when he or she is hurt the most it's mother. The solace and the peace which she always brings is divine and unparalleled. She knows your dilemma and your unspoken words even before you utter them. Why then at times we forget that we owe her our full life, we are indebted to her. Why then does she cry at times when she is the one who wiped out all our tears? It's hard to believe that today we have old homes where we leave our parents into the hands ofsolitude whereas its was she who befriended us when even our voices were drowned in oblivion, when our highest pitch was subdued, when our heart was torn apart and there was no one to even see the pain. Why then do we forget her unbiased and non demanding love. Is it not true that by hurting her we hurt ourselves, our moral values, our ethics ?
Through this poem Shoumika targets not just the youth but also every parent just to make every individual realizes how special this relationship is.
It's divine and is probably the most purest ever seen in the world.

BIDDING ADIEU
by Shoumika Ganguli

Shoumika Ganguli - Poetess - Washington Bangla RadioShoumika dedicates this poem to all students who are on the brink of leaving their eventful college life and now stepping onto a world of taking up not just responsibilities but challenges too. "Time and Tide waits for none” so new colleagues will replace old friends and bosses will replace hard-line and strict teachers. But amidst all these life like changes that’s every human being is destined too we all share something in common, from the worlds richest man to the poorest runs a chain i.e. the chain of emotions. Shoumika sees herself as just an apprentice so she may not very vividly and correctly justify all the emotions that run through one’s soul during farewells but she can surely feel a world loosing away from her and thus pen it down in a way that most of us would feel.

Bengali Rabindra Sangeet | Nandini Mukherjee

Nandini Mukherjee is an experienced practitioner of Rabidrasangeet (songs written and composed by Rabindranath Tagore). She trained under Amar Lahiri, an outstanding exponent of the varied styles of the genre, and a disciple of Subinoy Roy. Earlier, Nandini underwent formal training in Hindustani classical music at Geetabithi founded by Subinoy Roy.

Nandini believes that the essence of Rabindrasangeet lies not only in its poetry and inimitable musical style but also in its unmatched emotional appeal. Her belief echoes Tagore himself, who, by characterizing his music as Bhavsangeet, sought to emphasize emotion over technique. He therefore classified his compositions in terms of their emotional appeal to people as Puja (devotion), Prem (love), Prakriti (nature) and Swadesh (patriotism), and not as the different classical or folk forms of music from which he drew inspiration.

Being Bhavsangeet, Rabindrasangeet has a universal appeal, transcending barriers of language and nationality. The cause of universality is furthered by Tagore's unfettered acceptance of musical styles from lands faraway and near, which he synthesized and harmonized to constitute his own, inimitable brand of music.

It is in continuance of this pursuit that Nandini's renditions have been accompanied by narration in English.

Nandini performs lives at venues in Bangalore and Kolkata.
