World Music Day 2021: From Amit Trivedi to Amitabh Bhattacharya: Music composers and singers who are underrated despite being immensely talented
June 21 marks World Music Day alongside International Yoga Day. Music is therapy and it sets our mood right whenever we are sad or feel low. Good music can be like a healing power. Be it pop, rock or jazz, or any other form of music, we can listen to any of this kind according to our mood. It plays a very very important role in everyone’s life.
For the unversed, the first World Music Day was celebrated in 1982 in France after the government announced June 21 as a National Holiday. Today, on the occasion of this special day, we will talk about a few bollywood musicians and singers who are immensely talented yet underrated.
Underrated music composer and singers
Amitabh Bhattacharya is one of the most underrated lyricists and playback singers of the industry. From Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, lootera, 2 States, to Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Dangal, he has given some of the hits in the past. He had bagged many awards for his lyrics and lent his voice for songs like Ankahee, Iktara, and Tera Rasta Chhodun Na to name a few.
Music composer, Amit Trivedi has given us some of the melodious songs that have struck a chord with music lovers. He has made some original music for movies like Dev D Wake Up Sid, Udaan, English Vinglish, Kai Po Che among others. We wish him to compose and sing more songs. Meanwhile, he has produced music for the upcoming movie Haseen Dillruba that stars Taapsee Pannu, Vikrant Massey, and Harshvardhan Rane.
Mithoon has given some really great songs, yet he is one of the most underrated musicians. The music composer and singer has produced great hits like Woh Lamhe (Zeher), Tere Bin (Bas Ek Pal), Maula Mere Maula (Anwar), Tum Hi Ho (Aashiqui 2), The Train, Murder 2, Jism 2, etc.
If you are truly a music lover, Jasleen Royal’s songs should be on your playlist. From Nachde Ne Saare, Kho Gaye Hum Kahan, to Love you Zindagi, Preet, and Din Shagna Da, Jasleen’s songs suits every situation-be it wedding or heartbreak. We wish she croons more songs.
How can we forget the song Iktara from Wake Up Sid!. Seth, who is known for her Sufi songs and Ghazals, also crooned Tumhi Ho Bandhu (Cocktail) . So, she is such a genius. She also lent her voice for Jeete Hain Chal (Neerja). Bollywood should utilize this soothing voice for more songs.
These are some music composers and singers who are behind some of the most haunting and soulful melodies but they haven’t gained that much popularity as much as their contemporaries. Apart from them, there are a few others like Sachin-Jigar, Ram Sampath, Sona Mohapatra, and others who have produced some of the great songs, yet underrated. Let us know if we have missed any of the underrated singers or composers.
