Bengali Singer Amiya Tagore
Written By - Team Nettv4u

Amiya Tagore was born on February 12th, 1908. She was a prominent Bengali Rabindra Sangeet vocalist. She was privileged enough to be the disciple of the eminent poet Rabindranath Tagore. She portrayed Pramada in Tagore's dance drama "Mayar Khela," directed by the poet. Amiya Tagore became part of the Tagore family after marrying Hridindranath Tagore, the grandson of Rabindranath Tagore's elder brother. Following her marriage, Amiya Tagore only performed in public on Rabindranath Tagore's birthdays. Her early education was at Calcutta's Bethune School and later at Bethune College. She began her musical education with a Muslim ustad and afterward studied classical music with Nagendra Kishore Bandyopadhyay.

Her most major impact, however, came from Rabindranath Tagore, who taught her directly and entrusted her with difficult tunes because of her lovely voice. Amiya Tagore's notable songs are "Hey Nutan Dekha Dik Aarbaar," "Samukhe Shantiparabar," "Hey Nutan Dekha Dik Aarbar," "Baro Bismay Lagey Heri Tomare," "Tabu Mone Rekho," and "Samukhe Shantiparabar." She also performed "E parabase rabe ke hay" for Satyajit Ray's film "Kanchenjungha" in 1962. She enthralled the crowd with her singing at Rabindra Sadan in Calcutta near the end of her life in 1979. She met her demise on November 13th, 1986. Sailajaranjan Majumdar, the international music teacher at Santiniketan, described in his memoirs his wish to learn a song from Amiya Tagore during his tour to Calcutta.
