music east >>>>> 

the music over there is fascinating

Welcome to the eastern side of the world and listen to some popular music. I can tell you this - you will probably love this kind of music.  How is eastern music? Which countries are in the east?  That will be for you to find out.Don't worry, I will tell you more and more as time goes on.

Let me tell you the story of the musical side of my life.

To state simply, I am a music lover. I have grown up listening to music of 4 countries - Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and USA.

USA is not in the east. It is located just on the other side of the world from where 'East' is. I was exposed to English music just because I listened to some popular English music while at school and fell in love with those. Music by Carpenters, Beatles, Abba etc....a music lover will love music no matter what the language is ....

I will start this page with an authentic Bangladeshi music. During my lifetime,I have listened to this song for at least 2000 times .... maybe more .... ! ? :)   whichever .... The name of the movie was Nacher Putul, which means 'dancing doll', a romantic cinema made in Bangladesh during the  late 60s, possibly ... It was a musical comedy.

MOVIE: AASHIANA - PAKISTAN
IMAGE: IQBAL GUL - FROM YOUTUBE

From Bangladesh, travel towards the west and you will reach India. Travel further west, and you will arrive at Pakistan. All these 3 countries used to be one country [INDIA] and was a large British colony until 1947. This is a bit of geography and a little bit of history. 

Now let's listen to a very popular music from Pakistan (or shall I say Lollywood?)

This song is from the famous movie Aashiana, that was released way back in 1964. The song that you are about to see, was shown twice in the movie. This one song made the movie a superhit!!!! People were bound to go to the movie theatre again and again. Romantic song and you know how young people are ..... at that time there was no Facebook, but there was face to face version of Facebook - I mean socialising and word of mouth advertising ...... 

This extremely melodious music was the heart of this movie. Don't forget the time, 1964, Just emphasising, that was a long time ago. Carefully observe the quality of picturisation and the quality of music. The actor is Kamal and the actress is the famous Zeba.

Yes, the leading centre of film making was the famous Hollywood, but on the other side of the world were also some places with lights and cameras, superstars, musicians, lyricists and some extremely popular music.

This song and its picturisation shows the quality of talent of that time in Pakistani cinema. 


Please enjoy the music now ......

There are two songs (same song, picturised twice)

Akele na jana  ---> Movie: Armaan     Vocalist: Ahmed Rushdi     Musician: Sohail Rana      Origin: Pakistan

Back to Bangladesh, and I will now introduce to you the next Bangladeshi song. One of my real favourites. This one is probably the most popular Bangladeshi song sung in a female voice. The singer is Sabeena Yasmeen. She is a famous personality in the Bangladeshi music industry.

Bangla (also known as Bengali) is a language spoken by over 300 million speakers worldwide. This language is prevalent in Bangladesh and also in 3 Indian states. In the present globalised world, speakers of Bangla language can be found in almost every country.

This song is full of emotion and most people who understand the language will have tears in their eyes. I wish I had the time to translate the words to English...[may be one day I will]

The lyrics, the music and the acting have all mixed perfectly to create an environment where Bangladeshi audience feel mixed emotions [extremes of love, happiness and sadness]. They have viewed this movie over and over again and listened to this song probably millions of times.

As I already mentioned previously, Bangladesh and India are neighbouring countries.  Most popular songs in this side of the world have originated from cinema. People love to view movies. India has Bollywood, Bangladesh has Dhallywood and Pakistan has Lollywood. The origin, as you can well understand, is Hollywood. Copying is OK, [probably], if it can be justified for the purpose of creating a buzz... ?! .... entertainment?!.... having fun.... ? !!!

They say that all is fair in love and war. The situation we have here is 'love of movies', therefore, all is fair. True, it started from Hollywood. The city that is now Mumbai [in India] used to be Bombay, therefore Indians started calling their film industry Bollywood (the Hollywood in Bombay). Subsequently Pakistan started using the term Lollywood because their film production centre was located in Lahore (the Hollywood at Lahore). Finally Bangladesh followed the same trend. The Hollywood at Dhaka (capital of Bangladesh) is known as Dhallywood to many people, although the term Bangladeshi cinema is more common.

Now it is time to listen to this famous Bangladeshi song from another hit movie - Moner moto bou (released in the 60s)

I am sure you are eagerly waiting for another song from Bollywood ...? I mean, another superhit ....

All of these songs are superhits and there is simply no doubt about this fact. This is the concept upon which music east is based. Best of the best from the east.

The next song is from the movie Parineeta. The actor is Saif Ali Khan and the actress is Vidya Balan. The male singer is Sonu Nigam and the female singer is Shreya Ghoshal. I can't explain to you just how much rich and famous all of these people are. Just guess.

As far as I am concerned, I loved this song the first time I heard it. Now its time for us to listen to the song:

"Full Moon” by Exsodus  www.freedigitalphotos.net


On this charming night

Only of the two of us, alone and isolated

We will be sitting face to face

In this quietness, and away from everyone

We will talk with our eyes, so no one will hear …..  

Is it a poem? It does not rhyme*.

Does it follow the rules of a poem? I am not sure.  

I do not claim any credit for this poem, as this is just my English translation of a wonderful and romantic thought. With this thought, a Bengali  song was written and then music was created.

Lyrics : Khaleda Edib Chowdhury  [Bangladeshi songwriter, female] Music : Fuad Naser Babu [Bangladeshi composer, male]

_______________________________ 

* In the original lyrics, it rhymes. It sounds just like a beautiful poem.

___________________________________________________________


Finally, a song was sung by Shumona Huq [a Bangladeshi female singer known for modern music].

Fortunately, for us, listeners, this song was supported by highly talented musicians with various types of musical instruments.

Excellent lyrics + excellent composition + beautiful voice + extraordinary music =     ?  

Listen to the song and think about it …..  

This song is not from any movie. It originated for inclusion in an audio album. This song was a super duper hit in Bangladesh, the time was probably around 2000, or even may be around 2005 …. ????   This is the link at youtube. You will see singer Shumona Huq of Bangladesh, who introduced a slightly new style of singing on stage at that time when it was needed....   Proudly brought to you by Music East

BOLLYWOOD WAS NOT BUILT IN A DAY

We have heard about the famous proverb "Rome was not built in a day". Similarly, Bollywood was also not built in a day. The first film that was made in Bollywood was way back in 1913, more than a century that is!

The world, however, did not discover Indian movies until very recently. Bollywood seems to have given a big surprise to everyone! 

Outside India, Bangladesh and Pakistan being neighbouring countries knew Bollywood very well. Cinema enthusiasts in these 2 countries knew quite well how the film industry was progressing in Bombay (now the famous Mumbai). The countries in the Middle East, especially U.A.E (i.e. Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah) and Qatar with its capital Doha) discovered Bollywood since the 1970s  and the Bollywood film market kept expanding fast in that region. Europe (especially UK) felt the influence of Bollywood since 1980s, as more and more film units from Mumbai started visiting Europe for completing shootings in selected locations. Today, Bollywood has occupied a significant amount of market share in the international film industry.

Let's go back to see how Bollywood was in the mid 60s. This is a web page based on music, therefore the music has to be TOP CLASS, as the music lovers' expectations are very high. We are ready for that.

Here is the link at Youtube. You will see Dev Anand, the Indian male superstar of that time, with the beautiful Waheeda Rahman (the female film star, who was  also very popular in the history of Indian cinema). The singers are Lata Mangeshkar (female) and Kishore Kumar (male), two legends in the Indian film industry. How much rich and famous they are ....... I could never even imagine .... I don't dare to make any guess :)

CLICK ON THE FOLLOWING LINK - 

GAATA RAHE MERA DIL


Liked it? Most probably yes. Now here is another one. This is from the famous movie Johny Mera Naam (which means Johny is my name). The movie was considered a Dev Anand classic and it was a crime thriller. However, the song I have selected from this movie is full of romance with a mixture of comedy ... :) .... Romance and comedy in a crime thriller? Sounds interesting?

This time Dev Anand can be seen with Hema Malini, one of the glamourous female superstars India has produced. What makes these people so much popular so fast? Carefully observe their style, their acting, their facial expression and .... and .... there are so many things ..... everything they do is 'SOMETHING SPECIAL'

OK, now .... Let me tell you a story

Long time ago, in Pakistan, a movie became an instant superhit and suddenly everyone was talking about this movie. Actually they were all talking about a particular song that was in the movie. Such a romantic song is rare, extremely rare ...

People love to listen to this melodious song even today. I think more and more people are listening to this song now than ever before. Many vocalists have sung this song, but the one I selected for you is probably the best. Now is your chance to see Sara Raza (female) and Ali Abbas (male), two of Pakistan's rising stars singing this .....

The name of the movie was Road to Swat and it was released in 1970, that is 45 years ago ....

Ye ada ye naaz ye andaz aapka   this is the first line of the song.

The reason I love this one is because Sara Raza Khan and Ali Abbas both are very good looking. And it is wonderful to hear a romantic song from such a pair who are also so much natural in the stage, as if [after so many years] this song belongs to them ...

Watch this and you will understand what I mean ... 

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1c51x2_sara-raza-ali-abbas-ye-ada-ye-naaz-ye-andaz-aap-ka-official-video_music



Now this is another song sung by Sara Raza Khan. This is a superhit romantic song from India (and don't forget, Sara Raza Khan is a Pakistani female singer).

TERE MERE BEECH MEIN KAISA HAI YE BANDHAN ANJANA is the name of the song, which is from the movie EK DUJJE KE LIYE, which was a superhit in India. I will tell you more about the song and the movie later on, but first let us listen to this one ......

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWGkAcjEy0k


Ek Duuje ke liye.jpg

EK DUJJE KE LIYE was a romantic movie (released in 1981) through which both Roti Agnihotri and Kamal Hasan became superstars. It was full of romance from beginning to end. Just watch the song as shown in the movie (oh yes, I was one of the viewers soon after the movie was released) .....

The song was sung by Lata Mangeshkar and S.P.Balasubrahmaniam.   Music - Laxmikant Pyarelal. Here it is

ORIGINAL SONG - TERE MERE BEECH MEIN KAISA HAI YE BANDHAN

music east >>>>>

the music over there is fascinating



Now I will come back to the Bangladesh music scene and tell you something about Bangladeshi cinema in the 70s. One of the female superstars of that time was 'Bobita' who won the hearts of many film lovers. She  has recently received Lifetime Achievement Award in Dhaka, Bangladesh. When Bobita was enjoying her stardom, I was a student at that time and I was to be found in the movie theatres almost always. As you can well imagine, I was strongly attracted to movies and music all my life. When I think about Bangladeshi cinema of the 70s [and also early 80s], sometimes I have felt that black and white movies should have been here forever. Just watch this song in black and white form and you will know what I mean. This is also your chance to see Bobita singing a very popular romantic song of that time. The movie is Taka Ana Pai. In this movie she is acting in the role of a young lady who lives in the village. She has just fallen in love. This is how she expresses her feelings as she sings a beautiful song ....

The voice in the background is that of Sabina Yasmin [vocalist].

And last but not the least, this song will allow you judge the talent of famous musician/composer Altaf Mahmud, probably the best so far produced by Bangladesh.  

URU URU URU MON AMAR    YOUTUBE    click on this link



When we talk about 'Bobita' of Bangladesh, only one song does not actually reflect the true picture. The acting talent and attractiveness of Bobita must be shown properly. At least 3 or 4 songs need to be played. However, I will cut it short and include, for now, just one more song. Was the movie Shorolipi or Peech Dhala Poth? Really, I can't remember at the moment. But I will not stop writing, because I would like you to listen to this song as soon as possible ..... AND here it is    ....

The female singer in the background is another very popular Bangladeshi artist, Shahnaz Rahmatullah [vocalist]. I must also tell you now that the young man with Bobita (as you will see in this song) is Razzak, male superstar in the Bangladeshi cinema who was known as NAYOKRAJ RAJJAK (slightly differently spelt name)By the way, NAYOK RAJ is a combination of 2 Bangla words, that means HERO KING. Now is your chance to see this romantic pair who were responsible for creating many superhits in the Bangladeshi cinema industry in the late 60s and early 70s.

introducing eastern music to the western world


SURPRISE! INDIA DOES NOT HAVE JUST BOLLYWOOD ... ???


Well, what I am trying to say is, in India there are few other film production centres besides Bollywood. Bollywood has become famous as the films produced from there are in Hindi language, which many people can understand. It's not just the language, movies in Bollywood (in general) are made in such a manner where a Hindi movie in TOTALITY is attractive. The good looking filmstars, their facial expressions, their acting, their style, high quality of music, the choreography, the dances performed by large groups ... each element is carefully planned and produced. A very large amount of money is spent in composing some music - sometimes just one song can take weeks to be finalised .....

The most important thing (as I have learnt about Bollywood) is that many of India's best and brightest people prefer to go to the film industry. These people become screenwriters, music composers, choreographers, interior designers and the film directors. It's not only the glittering lights and the glamour, Bollywood is also full of talented people. Its a place where teamwork and brainpower come together. And the financial strength ... I mean investment ... is BIG .... just because the market they have developed is vast

So, India does not have just Bollywood. Besides Mumbai, movies are also produced in other centres and these movies are made in a particular regional language. Please don't ask me how many regional languages there are in India ... the answer is ... there are MANY

Now this song that you about to hear is not from Bollywood, it is from Kolkata, another major centre of film making in India. Many people call such movies 'Cinema of West Bengal'. The language of this song is Bangla (i.e. Bengali) and the same language is spoken in Bangladesh, which is an independent country just next to India (on the eastern side). In this song you will see Uttom Kumar, the male superstar in the Kolkata film industry, who is also very well known recognised in all of India. With Uttom Kumar is Madhobi (the female film star). Well, I have given a long introduction, now let's listen to this famous romantic song, which originated possibly in the 60s or 70s. The singer is Asha Bhosle, she is TOO MUCH FAMOUS in all of India as well as internationally.

AND NOW -

HERE IS A SONG FROM KOLLYWOOD ... !!

You probably have heard about a city called Chennai? It is a famous beach city in the south-eastern side of India, where there is an area by the name of Kodambakkam. Numerous films in Tamil language have been produced here. And this is how the name KOLLYWOOD was established. Using the alphabet K from the name Kodambakkam.

The next song is one from the movie Pudhiya Mugam. This piece of music is one of the best creations of world famous composer A.R.Rahman. You will see Revathi (actress) and Suresh Chandra Menon (actor) in some romantic scenes. There is something special about Tamil songs. Please don't ask me what it is ... because I won't be able to explain. It's just a special feeling ....

The playback singer is Sujatha Mohan.

I wish I could write few pages to express my feelings relating this wonderful piece of art. But time is so much limited .... Let's listen to the song instead ....

OLD IS GOLD?

SURELY, EVERYONE KNOWS. AND EVERYONE AGREES

Viewers, you may now listen a superhit song from a very old Pakistani movie, Tum Mere Ho (YOU ARE MINE). The playback singer is Ahmed Rushdi (the male vocalist) who sung the song jointly with Irene Parveen (the female vocalist). In the silver screen you will see Pakistani superstar Nadeem happily singing this romantic song. Ahmed Rushdi and Nadeem in their own fields dominated the Pakistani film industry for over 2 decades. Irene Parveen was also very famous. As you listen to the music, you should also enjoy the natural beauty of Kaptai Lake, in Chittagong Hill Tracts, Bangladesh. At that time, Bangladesh was known as East Pakistan. This movie was released in the mid sixties.

The music was created by Robin Ghosh, one of Bangladesh's most talented musicians of all time. 

I am sure you will love this song, the first time you listen to it. A classic! Here it is .... from Youtube

I can remember another Pakistani song of that time that I used to love (and still do). It was a duet from the movie Aag. As beautiful as the song was, equally attractive was the picturisation, and even more impact was created by the film stars (superstars of course!) Zeba and Mohammad Ali. Such a romantic song is still hard to find .... (And also, let me tell you that their on screen romance resulted in Zeba and Mohammad Ali actually tying the knot in real life). Just watch them, and like me, you may also feel these two were made 'just' for each other. Once again, it is Ahmed Rushdi in the background singing with Mala, another melodious female voice of the time.

The music was composed by Nisar Bazmi, one of the famous musicians of South Asia.He performed as a music director in the Pakistani as well as Indian film industry.

Which of these two songs do you think is better? I could never answer this myself. So I will now leave you with this very difficult question....

Haven't heard the second song? Well, here it is. Just click

AND NOW, BANGLADESH, AND ALSO, FAST FORWARD

I have used the term fast forward to indicate that now I will bring you to the modern age and introduce to you a new song which was produced quite recently. In this connection, I must tell you that a lot of wonderful music has recently been created in Bangladesh, the reason being there is no shortage of enthusiastic and capable artists in the country who are building the music industry for the future. They realise that the market now is a world market.

NA BOLA KOTHA  [ WORDS THAT WERE NEVER TOLD ]

Not sure how I can make you understand ....

What I could never tell you ..... I want to tell you today

FRESH SONG, REAL RECORDING, REAL COMMENTS BY REAL ASTISTS IN BENGALI LANGUAGE

The song you will now hear is again, 3 years old already, just because time travels really fast especially in the music and film industries. I have discovered this song quite recently and I believe this piece of music will be a good introduction to your understanding and evaluation of contemporary Bangladeshi music. You will meet Eleyas Hossain (male vocalist) and Tasmina Aurin (the female vocalist) - 2 rising stars singing a romantic song in one of the 28 (or more) private TV channels that are currently available to the Bangladeshi audience. 

The other artist you will see here is Imran (playing the keyboard) who is also the music composer.  

In the mean time, a major transformation has taken place in the Bangladeshi music scene. In the past, most superhits were produced in the film industry. Recently, we are observing that the TV channels are playing a significant role in the creation of some very popular music. Again, television is being complemented by video production. Currently there are many talented young producers of music video in a country that has a vibrant music industry dominated by 'stars of the new generation'.

I guess I have written quite a long introduction and now is your time to listen and enjoy ......

THE STORY OF SHABNAM

Back to history  ........

If you have followed this page  MUSIC EAST @ ONLINE BIZ TOWER carefully, you may have recognised the above movie still. This was my first selected song in this page. This was from a Bangladeshi movie Nacher Putul. The gorgeous female actress in this song O nodi o akash, ami bhalobeshechi was SHABNAM, who was born and brought up in Bangladesh. At one point of time in her acting career, she performed in some URDU films, which were made in Pakistan (at that time, today's Bangladesh was known as East Pakistan and today's Pakistan was known as West Pakistan).  Shabnam, after acting in some Urdu movies, became extremely popular in Pakistan and signed a number of offers made by Lollywood film producers. Eventually she made Pakistan her home and became probably the most popular female film star over there. Shabnam was a superstar in Pakistan during most of the 70s and early 80s (if my memory is right).  You may be curious to see how Shabnam, while growing up in Bangladesh, started attracting followers from Lollywood? I will now introduce you to a song from the movie TALAASH (this is an Urdu word which means SEARCH). TALAASH was in Urdu language, but made in Bangladesh. It was from early 60s. Watch this song as Shabnam sings with Rahman (thmale film star, who was also very famous in his time. Shabnam and Rahman made a very popular pair for a sure success formula for any romantic film in this region ............

Back to the subject of Indian music. Or should I say 'the glamorous world of Bollywood'? The word 'Bollywood' is really captivating, isn't it?

At the moment, I am thinking about a special time in my life when I was in Calcutta, in India. The time was 1981 or 1982, I think.

These days the name 'Calcutta' is no longer used. The mega city in India is now called and spelled as 'Kolkata'. This is exactly the way the name is pronounced in local language, i.e. Bangla. 'Bangla' is also known as 'Bengali', and this is the main language of Bangladesh as well as a large region in theastern side of India.

I was enjoying my holiday and counting the days for the release of 'Manzil'. The movie was just about to be seen and I was almost restless, impatiently waiting .... In those days, I used to read film magazines like I visit YouTube now. I read almost every article about Manzil available in Filmfare and Stardust, two magazines I used to buy frequently and read from A to Z.

Film journalists have been covering Manzil with a lot of attention and enthusiasm, as during that time, Amitabh Bachchan was a rising star ..... or was halready a STAR? I really can't remember. At a later stage, he was called a SUPERSTAR, and then, after a few more years, a MEGA STAR ...  what else is there? I mean what other branding is available ??????      :) :) 

I admire Indians for the way they inspire [and also show respect] to artists. And they are also so much creative .... surely, after MEGA STAR, some other labels will be available for future stars .....  there will be many, many more ..... that much I can say with all certainty....

The day Manzil was released, I was right there where I was supposed to be - in one of the cinema halls just close to my hotel in Kolkata. I was eagerly waiting to watch a romantic movie starring Amitabh Bachchan and Moushumi, two of my favourite filmstars of that time.

I will not keep you waiting any longer. I am sure you are eagerly waiting to listen to [and also see] a masterpiece from the movie Manzil. Here it is -
