Dil hoom hoom kare…..The golden voice of Bhupen Hazarika is silent now

Bhupen Hazarika, known for his haunting, resounding melodies like "Dil hoom hoom kare" and "Ganga behti ho kyon" is no more but his songs will always be with music lovers. He was one of my favorite singers…Just wish to share here his most melodious song of Rudali….and some other songs I like most….This post is tribute  the great singer….



A Dadasaheb Phalke Award winner, Hazarika's lyrics and voice lent a special flavour to several Bollywood songs and put the spotlight on music from Assam.Noted for his clear diction and voice, he sang his first song "Biswa nijoy nojowan" for Assamese film "Indramalati" when he was just 12.Later on, he sang soulful songs in Assamese, Bengali and Hindi.


Dole He Dola is Bhupen Hazarika’s most famous and popular song…..

Bhupen Hazarika was a  multifaceted genius, a poet, music composer, singer, actor, journalist, author and film-maker of the very highest repute. He was born in 1926, in Sadiya, Assam. An extremely academically prolific person,  did his Inter (Arts) in Guwahati in 1942, and went on to Banaras Hindu University to complete his B. A. in 1944 and his M. A. in Political Science in 1946. Soon after, he left for New York, USA where he lived for five years and received his doctorate (PhD) in Mass Communication from Columbia University. He also received the Lisle Fellowship from Chicago University, USA to study the use of educational project development through cinema.


  • Award for the Best Regional Film (Chameli Memsaab; Music by Bhupen Hazarika) in the 23rd National Film Awards (1975)
