Mithun Dhar will be on the stage and sing the immortal melodies by this legend. Attendees will get to hear melodies in Assamese, Bengali and Hindi languages.
Hazarika’s creations are mainly based on communal harmony, universal justice, empathy and humanitarian. Posthumously awarded with the second highest civilian award, Padma Vibhushan, Hazarika is a popular figure in Assam as well as in the music world of the country. He has also composed music for many Bollywood movies and has directed a couple of movies.
As a singer, Hazarika was known for his baritone voice and diction; as a lyricist, he was known for poetic compositions and parables which touched on themes ranging from romance to social and political commentary; and as a composer, for his use of folk music.In a poll conducted in Bangladesh, his song, Manush Manusher Jonno (Humans are for humanity)' was chosen to be the second most favourite number after the National anthem of Bangladesh. Some of his most famous compositions were adaptations of American Black Spiritual that he had learned from Paul Robeson, whom he had befriended during his years in New York City in the early 1950s.
