12 MP3 Songs
WORLD: Asian, EASY LISTENING: Crooners/Vocals
My family is from Shantiniketan , India and I grew up with Tagoreâs rich music blended with poems and lyrics. I studied and practiced Tagoreâs music all my life. I vocalized the songs of Tagore with professional musicians all from Nashville. The 12 songs that I vocalized were composed by Tagore in Bengali, but the CD contains a booklet with translations of all twelve songs in English. It also contains prints of paintings of famous artists from India and never been published before.
Because of my passion in Tagoreâs music and love for children, the proceeds from the sale of CDs are being donated to the Childrenâs Cancer Research Funds at Vanderbilt University; $1,476 was donated in 2005.
Rabindranath Tagore was a world renowned scholar, poet, writer and a philosopher. He championed Indian culture and philosophy throughout the world. His scholarship embraced a wide realm of arts, including composing poems and, writing novels, short stories, dramas, essays as well as painting. Tagoreâs songs, known as Rabindrasangeet, have made everlasting impression in the hearts and minds of Indians, and in countless others throughout the globe. He was a great humanitarian and a social reformer.
Tagore was born in Calcutta, India, on May 7, 1861. In 1909, he began composing Gitanjali (offering of songs) for which he was awarded Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913. 1n 1921, Tagore founded Viswabharati University in Shantiniketan, Bengal, India and donated his money from Nobel Prize and royalties from his books to Viswabharati. Tagore passed away on August 7, 1941.
The cover of the CD depicts a painting by the renowned artist Nandalal Bose. This was a gift to his Grandsonâs (Suprabuddha Sen, Santiniketan) at a special ceremony at the age of 6 months. The inside of the cover portraying a fisherman is also by Bose and was a gift to his Grandson at his wedding. The childrens portrait was drawn by him for a food stall on the occasion of a childrenâs festival. The lass illustrating âJamunaâ painted by a renowned artist Abanindranath Tagore, Rabindranath Tagoreâs nephew, was a gift to Jamuna Sen. The sketches are the creation of Jamuna Sen.
