Kabir Suman doesn't like overdose of sentiment in many modern songs
Kolkata, Oct 1 (IBNS) Former MP and popular singer-songwriter-actor Kabir Suman is not happy at the way some modern Bengali compositions are rendered.
"I don't like the overdose of sentiment in many present day songs. I don't enjoy listening to them. The lyrics and the tunes all look so un-original and synthetic," the mercurial singer says at the launch of a Nazrulgeeti album Café Kazi as a tribute to Kazi Nazrul Islam, the late iconic poet, writer, musician, and revolutionary who is also hailed as the national poet of Bangladesh .
Suman feels the stress and pressure which triggers depression among the people in present times are not properly communicated and the angst is not coming through in most of the numbers.
Suman, whose songs draw upon both Bengali adhunik (modern) and Western folk and protest music and recorded albums of Rabindra Sangeet, says "Rabindrasangeet have enjoyed far greater popularity than Nazrulgeeti but this has also caused deviation in 'mul gayaki' at times."
The intrepid balladeer of Bengal is all praise of Cafe Kazi, and called it a contemporary interpretation of Nazrulgeeti without tinkering with the 'bhab' of Nazrulgeeti.
"This will help in popularising Nazrulgeeti among the present generation," he says complimenting the singer Shaoli and her motivators Cactus frontman and leading Bengali rock singer Sidhu and their team.
Suman describes 'Bajichhe Damama...." by the rebel poet as one of his favourite numbers.
