A singer is not the one who has entered into the recording studio and recited the lyrics according to the composition, but the one who has felt the lyrics and lent his voice from the bottom of his heart. Most of the newcomers lack this quality and that’s why the standard of songs being recently recorded has degraded. However some of the newcomers are dedicated and passionate about music and have presented some soulful songs to the Assamese listeners. Though it’s a good sign that the new comers have shown interest in producing such singles, but if they fail to hold potential, then it will be harmful for the Assamese music industry as well as for art and culture.
Bikash Sharma, a promising singer, has recently released his first single ‘Jegat Lagi Jai’. Bikash Sharma, although not a professional musician, dabbles in music to fulfill his dream of becoming a popular singer of the Assamese music industry. The lyrics of the song ‘Jegat Lagi Jai’, which showcases the attitude and sentiments of a young man, was written by the cine journalist Kalyan Kumar Kalita. The lyricist has shared his feelings in this song by saying that in the case of love, the girls are always more serious than the boys, so every time when they meet the girl forces the boy to do things that strikes his mind – which is the main theme of the song. The song was composed by Hrituv Hazarika and musically arranged by Palash Gogoi. The entire song comes to life in its beautiful rendering by Bikash Sharma. According to the singer, the video of the song will release soon. He also added that, his second single titled ‘Urania Mon’ will also hit the markets soon in both audio and video format. Bikash, hopes that Assamese music lovers will accept his song ‘Jegat Lagi Jai’ and encourage him in his musical journey.
