Detail information below: --------------------- SACHIN DEV BURMAN: http://www.sdburman.com/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S._D._Burman (Quoting) "Sachin Dev Burman (1 October 1906 – 31 October 1975) was a versatile composer and he also sang songs in the folk style of Tripura. He has composed music for 100 movies (Bollywood), including Bengali films. Born in Comilla (British India, now in Bangladesh) to Rajkumari Nirmala Devi, princess of Manipur and Nabadwipchandra Dev Burman, son of Maharaja Ishanachandra Manikya Dev Burman, Raja of Tripura. His father was from Kokborok-speaking royal family of Tripura while his mother was from from the Manipuri-speaking royal family of Manipur. " "He absorbed the sights and sounds and music of rural Bengal from his early childhood. Soon his name became synonymous with Bengali folk music. When he sends his plaintive cry to the lover or the Supreme Being far away in his heartrending voice, it is as if he was sent on the earth by God so that Bhatiyali (folk style) would become immortal in his voice. He was later influenced by Rabindra sangeet and Nazrul Geeti. He was also formally trained in classical music and could sing at concerts in the company of top singers. He sang 15 film-songs. But his non-film songs number about 25 in Hindi and over 130 in Bengali. " --------------------- MICHEL MARTINEAU: https://soundcloud.com/michel-martineau A brilliant musician/composer who has also kicked cancer's butt :D (Quoting from his SC page) "Studied clarinet at the Montreal Conservatory from 1970 to 73. Then I started my jazz career from 1974 to 1984. During that period of time, I produce 3 records (they were called LP at the time). The peak of my jazz musician career was to win the Montreal International Jazz Festival contest 1984. " --------------------- SYED WAQEEL AHAD: https://soundcloud.com/syed-waqeel-ahad https://www.facebook.com/SyedWaqeelAhad A renowned singer, song writer from bangladesh who has released two albums and already became well reputed for his works. ---------------------- Theme of the song: This song is about a newly wed couple living in a village (rural part). It can be assumed that they had an arranged (traditional) marriage. In this song, the husband is expressing his sadness/helplessness as he is deeply in love with his wife but somehow failed to understand her. He is having a mixed emotion of feeling jealous, often pity and may be frustrated.
