Lopamudra Mitra, the most popular contemporary singer in Bengal today is
performing in New Jersey this summer!
Daughter of Late, Shree Pranab Mitra and Shreemati Sumita Mitra, she started
learning music from her father in childhood. Ranging from Rabindra Sangeet,
Indian Classical music, Bhajan and Nazrulgeeti, her versatility knows no
bounds. She ultimately found her platform in the songs based on poems of
renowned Bengali Poets. And that was her way to success. She performed all
over India with her new approach and won the music-lovers’ heart.
She won many awards for her unique dramatic style of singing, which is
fashioned with the classical aid and tenor voice quality. She won the prestigious
‘Bengal Film Journalist Award’ on her debut playback in the film ‘Sedin
Chaitramas’. Her album ‘Bhalobaste Balo’ was honoured as the best puja
album, best singer and album of the year in 2001. Her other album ‘Jhor Hole
Par!’ got the ‘ZEE MUSIC AWARD’ in 2005.
