Kanu Ghosh, the Music Director for 1959 film, Pyar Ki Rahein, is my “unsung Hero” for this upload. Not only this name has been off the radar for most of us…. But this talent has been in the trenches working away as an assistant creating great music for a renowned Music Director we all know, Salil Chowdhary!! He served the maestro Salil da from 1953 (Do Bigha Zamin) to 1972 (Annadata). Some of the notable films include; Jagte Raho (1956), Madhumati (1958), Kabuliwala (1961), and Anand (1971). I do have the list of all 20 movies if anyone is interested.
Kanu Ghosh must have been either a shy musician or a selfless sage….. as there is no mention of his name, his picture, his biography or his accomplishments in the archives of internet blogs for Hindi Cinema. Yes, his name is mentioned as the assistant for at least 20 films directed by Salil da. It remains a mystery for me BUT I am glad to see him get some recognition as he lucked out to be the Music Director for two movies, one for the song I am presenting and another one in 1957 called Naya Zamana.
I have been a sucker for sentimental songs for as long as I can remember. About five years ago, when I found myself on the stage as an amateur performer, I started with this Gem to get in the mood and even now I get drawn to this Gem more often than not. I uploaded this song on March 5, 2011 as my first ever recording and audio mixing experiment on Muziboo. I vividly remember how supportive my virtual friends were despite my dismal presentation. Hopefully, I have improved in my presentation skills and you, my friends will find this upload reasonably acceptable.
NOTE: Use of a good pair of headphone is recommended for an enhanced listening experience.
