Beautiful streets! Small huts! Green fields! And the perfect scenario of village. Though you have planned a lot of time to come to your grandmother’s house, it’s your job profile which didn’t allow you to go in the small village which is very far from the city. Oh yes! There is yet another reason of coming in the village; it’s your documentary project on “Bengali and folk music” which made you come here. As soon as you reached your grandmother’s home, you were welcomed by your grand mom with tears in her eyes. City people are so selfish; they come to their grandmother’s house for their project. Learn from the people of village! So good and humble in nature.

Music is something which connects you with the real “you”, it makes you realize the beauty of life and also a good way of creating awareness in the society. How is music different from folk music? What is folk music? Folk music is a genre of music which connects people with the roots of people; it is more about the people and culture and mainly sung by the localities. Youngsters love listening to folk music; it’s the inspiring lyrics of folk music which touches the heart of a young lad. Unfortunately, folk singers are not being paid enough in the music industry which have made many folk singers to leave folk singing. Classical and play back singers are well paid.

Modern singers are now experimenting with the old folk music tracks; it’s more than hundred years of folk music. Folk music and art music were the major categories of music in the late nineteenth century; it was folk music which was more popular among people in comparison to art music. Art music here generally involves classical music which was a medium of entertaining the audience; it’s the beautiful composition of classical music which made it popular not only in India but also over the world. Classical and Rabindra Sangeet Singer in Kolkata are hired by many international companies for their events; it also gave a good platform to all the classical singers where they can perform and also earn good money.

Classical music is more about the pen and paper lyrics which is not the same as folk music; it’s more about the things which happens in the society. The concept of folk music changes with every generation, every generation has presented folk music in a different way. Communal recreation is the main concept of folk music; it’s about the activities which happen around you. It can be anything. It might be about the village dance or some rituals which happens during a Bengali marriage. More and more folk singers are now coming to cities in search of a good job; it is an unfortunate fact that the value of folk music is diminishing with passing time.

Bangla Band in Kolkata have now taken a new approach to popularize folk music among people through the instruments which is used in folk singing, it’s the use of instruments of folk music which have again popularized folk music among city people.
