Amazing and refreshing piece of music after a long time.
The music video for Lionel Richie’s “Hello” directed by Bob Giraldi, attracts attention as it tells the story of a music teacher (played by Lionel Richie) who falls in love with his blind student.
Rangabati is Odisha’s most popular folk song from the Sambalpur region and the composition has been known to the local’s since time immemorial. The song reached a larger public and became a popular household song after it was recorded for the first time in the mid 70’s in the voices of Jitendra Haripal & Krishna Patel with additional lyrics by Mitrabhanu Guintia & re-arranged by Prabhudatta Pradhan. On this platform it is re-interpreted as a beautiful bi-lingual conversation of Sambalpuri & Tamil. The eternal adoration of the beloved in Rangabati is connected to the love for one’s roots & mother in the Tamil Rap & finally celebrates the love for one’s motherland in Bande Utkal Janini . Sona Mohapatra sings an ode to her home state Odisha in her milestone 10th year as a music artiste & is joined by the rapper duo Tony & Rajesh from Dharavi, Mumbai & the latest musical star from the state of Odisha , the supremely talented Rituraj Mohanty.
