Kalpana Patowary to perform in R.D.Burman’s Platinum tribute.

"Affection & Love Always Stay in Heart"
Kalpana Patowary's Tribute to Pancham da in 2014.

I think long before of the invention of the term WORLD MUSIC, R.D. Burman actually literally explored world music as he was ahead of his time - Kalpana Patowary.

Kalpana Patowary  will perform  in Lord of Melody R.D.Burman’s Platinum to celebrate his 75th Birth Anniversary organized by Rhythm D’vine on 27th June, 2014 - 6PM  Venue:  Sri Shanmukhananda Chandrasekarendra Saraswathi Auditorium, Mumbai.

The stage is set; the city is ready to celebrate the birth anniversary of one of its prodigal sons.

Rahul Dev Burman spent his formative years in Calcutta learning the ropes of music making from his father Sachin Dev as well as Ali Akbar Khan before accompanying his parents to Bombay. Years after his passing away, RD is more of a brand these days thanks to his ageless creations still appear as fresh as newly recorded songs.

But what makes the singer - composer whose 75th birthday anniversary falls on June 27th so relevant to the current times is the sheer canvas of his songs. They conveyed everything from pathos, romance, unrequited love, passion, loss, hope, fate and even lunacy through his inimitable and everlasting voice and voice.

To celebrate his 75th birth anniversary the Mumbai city is ready with a bundle of musical events, featuring singers and musicians to pay tribute to the musical maestro.

Rhythm D’vine brain child of famous Bolliwood Rhythmist Nitin Shankar will be presenting “Platinum Pancham”, and Kalpana Patowary would perform in Mumbai  in the city along with Usha Uthup, Suresh Wadkar, Anu Malik, Sukhwinder Singh,  Udit Narayan, Deepa Narayan, Shaan, Poornima,  Lalit Pandit, Aadesh Shrivastava, Vijeyta Pandit-Srivastava,  Abhijeet Bhattacharya, Sajid-Wajid, Pritam Chakraborty, Himesh Reshamiya, Sharib Toshi, Devaki Pandit, Payal Dev, Anand Raj Anand, Ismail Darbar,  Salim Merchant, Babul Supriyo, Kunal Ganjawala,  Ajay-Atul,  Javed Ali, Mahalaxmi Iyer, Srinivasan,  Vaishali Samant, Krishna Beura, Shabab Sabri,  Mithun, Naresh Sharma, Bela Shende, Kavita Paudwal & Sachin Pilgaonkar on 27th June, 6 p.m onwards at Sri Shanmukhananda Chandrasekarendra Saraswathi Auditorium, Mumbai.


It will be an unforgettable event for me, says Kalpana. I will be performing for the first time in any R.D.Burman’s tribute concert as a featured artist in Mumbai city. Says the singer, "He has entertained us over the years and how much his music has influenced us. I think long before of the invention of the term World music, R.D. Burman actually literally explored world music as he was ahead of his time.He reminds me of my college days. In Guwahati ASSAM all the artistes once decided to do RDs song version in Assamese and I sang and got to learn the compositions - ETA DESHLAI KATHI and AAJ KI RAATE …the project titled VIOLINA.  sedative music….
