An English album with 7-songs rendered by a promising Tezpur-based singer Nirmata Borah, was released by eminent music director Bhupen Uzir at a function held at the Guwahati Press Club recently. The function was also graced by cultural activist Surya Hazarika, cine-journalist Arunlochan Das, writer-journalist Naba Thakuria among others. Everyone on the occasion heaped high praise and appreciation on the singing skills of Nirmata, who has also tuned and written the lyrics in the album. The album musically arranged by Anirudha Baruah also includes a song called ‘The power of your songs..’ rendered as a tribute to Dr Bhupen Hazarika. The music video of this song was released in 2013 on u-tube.
The release function also coincided with the release of music video of the song ‘Just Sing..’. Directed by Jyoti Kakati and Sanchita Talukdar, it talks about love and hope despite a profusion of obstacles in life. Some other songs were inspired by true events. Nirmata, who is equally proficient in dancing, acting and painting, has also earned her Visharad in Bharat Natyam. Apart from singing, she has also made a name for herself as guest anchor in the popular reality show ‘North East Got Talent’, currently shown on Rengoni channel.
Its quite heartening to know that Nirmata Borah, who is undergoing musical training under Jiten Basumatary, has released a music video – ‘God bless us..’ on the u-tube recently as a homage to the victims of heinous terror attacks that took place in the heart of Paris on November 13. The album produced by Lakhi Prasad Borah under the banner of ‘One Man Journay’ is marketed by Ashok Music.
