Dr Bhupen Hazarika’s concerts were a top draw in any place. In in his lifetime, the’ Xudhakantha’ has accumulated hordes of fans. However one such fan has taken his devotion to ‘The Bard of the Brahmaputra’ to the next level. Dr Hiren Saikia despite being a well known eye specialist, is a huge fan of Dr Hazarika in heart.
And now Dr Saikia’s tireless efforts have resulted in something which will give The Bard’s fans something to cherish forever- the compilation of three of Dr Hazarika’s rare musical conferences that he had recorded. These invaluable recordings took place in Silchar (1976), Jorhat (1979) and Dibrugarh (1983).
Dr Saikia went a step further and made three audio CDs out of the same. Besides the wonderful songs, Dr Hazarika breaks into witty anecdotes from time to time, eliciting thunderous claps and approvals from the adoring crowds. It is to be noted that Dr Saikia recorded these progrrammes in a magnetic tape recorder.
