Samantak Sinha is a multi-talented singing sensation who has
come to the forefront of media attention after the hugely
successful tele-serial Gaaner Opare. Samantak lent his voice for
the male lead of the serial - Gora, singing Rabindrasangeets with
a very modern feel breaking away from the traditional styles of
singing Tagore's songs. Samantak's style of Rabindrasangeet
singing accompanied with a guitar has become very popular among
the masses, both old and young alike, and he is considered a
cultural youth icon of today.
The reason for tasting success in such a short time and forming a
special connect with the youth, stems from Samantak's origins in
music: Samantak started his musical endeavors when he was around
five, but would generally avoid performing at stage shows all his
school life, as he considered himself to be very shy to perform on
stage. Once in college, everything changed, Samantak found love in
Rock music and formed a band named "Empty Spaces", and was
frequently spotted singing Doors, Deep Purple and Pink Floyd
numbers with his band at college fests and reunions. The youth
could easily connect with Samantak's music and bonded with his
style. In 2009 Samantak and his band released an online album
"Jibon Britto" that showcased his prowess with Rock music. Soon
after college ad jingles followed, taking Samantak to Mumbai where
he worked on radio and TV ad work for two years. It was here in
Mumbai, that Debajyoti Mishra, the music director of Gaaner Opare
made Samantak an offer he just couldn't refuse - to sing
Rabindrasangeet in a new and modern way that would appeal to all
generations, and Gaaner Opare happened. Beyond Gaaner Opare
Samantak has also lent his voice for playback in mainstream
Tollywood films, most notably he has recieved a lot of accolades
for rendering a duet with Shreya Ghosal in the film "Uro Chithi"
These days, the youth of today finds a connect with Samantak's
soulful voice and heart warming renditions, be it of Rock, Jazz,
or Rabindrasangeet. There is a flair of honesty and innocence in
his voice that has made him to be accepted by both modern and
traditional music listeners alike. The journey from Rock to
Rabindrasangeet and beyond, has made Samantak what he is today - a
youth icon. Read more about Samantak and his work from his band's website www.emptyspacesmusic.com.
