About Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore was a world renowned scholar, poet, writer and a philosopher. He championed Indian culture and philosophy throughout the world. His scholarship embraced a wide realm of arts, including composing poems and, writing novels, short stories, dramas, essays as well as painting. Tagore’s songs, known as Rabindrasangeet, have made everlasting impression in the hearts and minds of Indians, and in countless others throughout the globe. He was a great humanitarian and a social reformer.
Tagore was born in Calcutta, India, on May 7, 1861. In 1909, he began composing Gitanjali (offering of songs) for which he was awarded Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913. 1n 1921, Tagore founded Viswabharati University in Shantiniketan, Bengal, India and donated his money from Nobel Prize and royalties from his books to Viswabharati. Tagore passed away on August 7, 1941.

About Anjana Dey

My family is from Shantiniketan , India and I grew up with Tagore’s rich music blended with poems and lyrics. I studied and practiced Tagore’s music all my life. I vocalized the songs of Tagore. CD produced by Brent Moyer, Nashville. The 12 songs that I vocalized were composed by Tagore in Bengali, but the CD contains a booklet with translations of all twelve songs in English. It also contains prints of paintings of famous artists from India and never been published before.

Because of my passion in Tagore’s music and love for children, the proceeds from the sale of CDs are being donated to the Children’s Cancer Research Funds at Vanderbilt University; $1,476 was donated in 2005.

Paintings

The cover of the CD depicts a painting by the renowned artist Nandalal Bose. This was a gift to his Grandson’s (Suprabuddha Sen, Santiniketan) at a special ceremony at the age of 6 months. The inside of the cover portraying a fisherman is also by Bose and was a gift to his Grandson at his wedding. The childrens portrait was drawn by him for a food stall on the occasion of a children’s festival. The sketches are the creation of Jamuna Sen.

Mentors

Anjana`s training in music began in her early childhood attending Gitabitan, a well reputed music school in Calcutta. After receiving her diploma, Gita Sen nurtured Anjana under her tutelage and recommended her to start advanced training under the guidance of Sailaranjan Mazumder, a well respected leader in Tagore’s music. Later she came across Subinoy Roy, another authority in Tagore’s music, who invited her to be his student for solo training. In her CD, Anjana vocalizes some of the songs Subinoy Roy taught her so passionately. She is currently taking her voice coaching from Dave Isaacs, trained in classical music from Manhattan School of Music in New York City. He is also a successful singer, songwriter and a recording artist.

An Important Voice
Anjana Dey is an important voice in the lineage of Rabindra Sangeet. Because she has thoroughly studied the music, she is faithful to Tagore's melodies. But in her willingness to adapt and interpret these melodies with instrumental arrangements that are approachable to Western ears, she has done a tremendous job introducing Rabindra Sangeet to contemporary audiences. If you don't know much about Rabindra Sangeet, this CD will serve as the perfect introduction. If you already know and love this music, you'll be delighted by this unique, yet faithful, approach.

Excellent CD and western music blend is very innovative
Ever since I learnt to appreciate music, Rabindra sangeet (Tagore songs) has been my most favorite. They are my constant companion and source for joy and happiness and emotional, spiritual and intellectual upliftment. Anjana, I have been litening to your music for the past forty five years and now with your CD in my possession I can listen to it any time I want. It is a great CD and blended well with the western music. The songs bring back a lot of memory and happiness. We are proud of you.

A wonderful CD, sung by a wonderful woman.
This CD is wonderful. As a long-time friend, Anjana is wonderful. This CD is well done and also facilitates an educational tool to Tagore and his greatness. The musicianship and production all team-up beautifully with the awesome voice Anjana projects and reflects in Indian roots. I applaud Anjana and her husband directing all proceeds from the sale of this CD to be donated to the Children's Cancer Fund... Hopefully this exceptional CD will tap many lives.

“Anjana, we commend you and your group for the excellent production of the CD on Tagore's songs. We have enjoyed your rendering of Tagore's song always, and on the CD you have done a superb job. It is very surprising and delightful, how Americans (your producer and the instrumentalists), totally unfamiliar with this kind of music have been able to perform so admirably. The translations of the songs into English are extraordinary. They have truly conveyed the meaning and spirit of the original writing. Sudhanshu and Pranab should be hugely complimented for these translations. The aesthetics of the booklet, complete with Nandalal Bose and Abanindranath's painting, are also excellent. Congratulations!”

“Wow - The postman made our day! Marguerite and I listened to Anjana sing those melodies and we enjoyed them. It was a new experience with us.
