Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life －Berthold Auerbach
Music is what feelings sound like!
500 years ago, Saint Srimanta Sankardeva introduced music and drama for the first time in Assam and in the world. From then on, music has been an integral part of the Assamese community. It is an important part of most cultures that prevail in Assam.
Following his footsteps of Sankardeva, Jyotiprasad Agarwala in 1935 directed Jaymati which was released in Kumar Bhaskar Naitya Mandir. This movie showed a new horizon to Assamese art and music. Jyotiprasad’s great work was carried on in the later period by legends of Assamese art like Bishnu Prasad Rabha, Phani Sharma, Hemanga Biswas, Nip Baruwa, Brajen Baruwa, Bhawendra Nath Saikia, Ratan Lahkar, Munin Baruwa, Jahnu Baruwa, etc.
Along with films, legends like Jyotiprasad Agarwala, Bishu Rabha, Parbati Prasad Baruwa, Pratima Pandey Baruwa, Dipali Barthakur, Bhupen Hazarika, Jayanta Hazarika, Khagen Mahanta, Zubeen Garg, and others have put their efforts to give Assamese music a new dimension.
