Bhupen Hazarika | ভূপেন হাজৰিকা | 08 Sep 1926 – 05 Nov 2011.

05 November, 2011. The JFA joins Assam and the world in mourning the demise of the great Dr Bhupen Hazarika. Bhupenda – as he was affectionately known in Assam – shaped the baseline for powerful modern music in Assam and set about a standard where meaningfulness and depth greatly mattered.

The loss of Dr Hazarika is irreplaceable and marks the end of an era of modern music whose simplicity had the amazing power of being able to rapidly move the masses.
Rest In Peace, Bhupenda. Generations to come will continue to be enriched by the legacy of your music. In deep reverence, from everyone at The JFA.
