Salil Chowdhury
Salil Chowdhury (1925-September 5, 1995) was a famous Bengali music director. Although disputed, his birthdate is widely recognised to be 19 November, 1925.

Salil was acknowledged as a talented musician by many in India's musical industry. Late in the 1940s, he joined the Indian People's Theatre Association (IPTA) as well as joining the country's communist party. During this period, it is believed he wrote numerous songs and used his membership with the IPTA to get his work presented to a mainstream audience.

Some of his other activities include converting Sukanta Bhattacharya's poems into songs (sung by Hemanta Kumar Mukhopadhyay), which he referred to as "Songs of consciousness and awakening". He also created many compositions for over 75 Hindi films, 26 Malayalam films including the late sixties' classic Chemmeen, and a variety of Bengali,Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Gujarati, Marathi, Assamese and Oriya films, as well as several TV films and serials.

Several other popular or famous Indian playback singers have worked with Salil Chowdhury, including Lata Mangeshkar, Manna Dey, Mukesh and Yesudas. His daughter, Antara Chowdhury, also contributed her voice to some of his works. Salil's Bengali songs had a major impact on the course of Bengali modern music, which began to influence the industry from the 1950s onward.

Salil Chaudhary

Salil Chaudhary was born on 19th November 1923 in Sonarpur, District 24
Parganas.

His father, Gyanendra Chaudhary was a doctor with a passion for music.
His elder brother Nikhil Chaudhary was the director of an orchestra
called "Milan Parishad" hence Salil was exposed to musical
instruments and instrumental arrangements from a very early age.

Salil's favourite instrument was the flute, which featured prominently
in his subsequent work. He was trained on the piano and violin and hence
from an early age was introduced to western classical as well
as traditional North Indian classical musics, and a fusion of the two
became his distinguishing trademark.

While at university in Calcutta, Salil was exposed to the rising tide of
Indian nationalism and protest against British rule, as well as the
rural mass movements that were being led by Communist groups in
the villages of Bengal. Having first made his mark writing for student
conventions (including "Bicharpati Tomar Bichar" in 1943, and
"Dheu Uthchhe Kara Tutchhe" in 1944 for the Quit India
Movement, both of which songs were banned).

He was a founding member of the Gana Natya Sangh or Indian Peoples
Theatre Association (IPTA), where he composed innumerable songs under
the grouping "Ghum Bhangar Gaan". Among these included musical
accompaniments to famous poems, such as Sukanta Bhattacharya's
"Abak Prithibi" and "Runner". Other famous "mass songs" (ganasangit)
from this period include "Hei Samalo" written for the Tebagha Andolan (1948),
"Amaar Pratibader Bhasha" (1950) and many translations of mass
songs from around the world, particularly the Soviet Union. He was also,
with Ruma Guha Thakurta, a founder of the Calcutta Youth Choir, which
travelled in its early years around the villages of Bengal with
the IPTA to sing Salil Chaudhary's songs.

In the 1950s, Salil, having created a completely new style of music
through fusion of east and west, established himself as the leading
composer of "adhunik" (popular) music in Calcutta. He was the
leading playback song writer in Tollygunj, from where he was taken to
Bombay by Munshi Premkumar. Salil, though continuing to write for
Bengali films, was based in Bombay for 2 decades subsequently,
with prominent films including Jagte Raho/Ek Din Ratre (1957), Madhumati
(1958) and Kabuliwala (1960).

He returned to Calcutta in the 1970s, and continued writing modern
Bengali songs, leading a revival movement with songs which were
quickly popularised such as "Surer Jharna" and "Teler Shishi". His
wife, Sabita Chaudhary, and his daughter, Antara Chaudhary, are also
prominent in Calcutta today. Salil's contemporary work is predominantly
for the popular Bengali theatre form "Jatra" and he continues to write
songs for each year's puja releases.

Published collections of his work include "Prantarer Gaan" and "Salil
Chaudharyr Gaan".

Shaam Se Aankh Mein - Mitti Ka Dev (Unreleased) - Salil Chowdhury

This is a song from the unreleased movie "Mitti Ka Dev." The music is composed by the one and only Salil Chowdhury. This is the Hindi version of the very famous Bengali song "Mon Matal SaaNjh Shokal." Both the versions have been sung by Mukesh. All the information related to the movie "Mitti Ka Dev" has been sourced from www.salilda.com, probably, the only website to know about the genius Salil Chowdhury
