Kalpana Patowary is an Indian playback and folk singer from Assam. She participated in the reality show Junoon - Kuchh Kar Dikhaane Ka (2008) on NDTV Imagine. Although she has many folk and popular songs to her credit, Bhojpuri music has been her most dedicated foray.[1]

Early life and background

" Music barons in India were left gaping when Kalpana Patowary, a singer of Indian folk music, was signed on by British recording company Virgin EMI Records in April. They were all the more surprised to see the soaring international demand for her Bhojpuri music album with songs about migration. It seems Bhojpuri folk songs on migration are witnessing resurgence on an unexpected scale."[2]

Patowary was born on 27 October 1978 in Barpeta district in Assam.[3] A graduate in English literature from Cotton College, Assam and Visharad in Indian Classical Music, Lucknow in 1996, Patowary started publicly performing at the age of 4. Trained in kamrupiya and goalporiya Assamese folk music by her father Sri Bipin Patowary, a folk singer himself, Patowary is also trained as Sangeet Visharad in Indian classical music from Bhatkhande Music Institute University, Lucknow.[4] She sings many forms of Bhojpuri folk music including Purvi, Pachra, Kajri, Sohar, Vivaah geet, Chaita, and Nautanki.[5]

Patowary has worked extensively on the works of Bhikhari Thakur and has released an album commemorating his life and work.[6]

Career

Patowary is the first Bhojpuri singer to present an age old tradition of Khadi Birha tradition to international platforms.[7]

In 2013, Patowary made an appearance in a documentary film, Bidesia in Bambai. Released on 8 December 2013, it is a look at Mumbai through the lens of the migrant worker and his music.[citation needed]

She was invited to perform on a 15-day tour in four Latin American countries presented by the Ministry of Cultural Affairs on the occasion of Indian Arrival Day.[citation needed]

Patowary is the first woman to record and sing in the Chhaprahiya Purvi style.[8] Prior to her work, Purvi was a male preserve.

Political career

In July 2018 Patowary joined the Bharatiya Janata Party in the presence of its president Amit Shah and Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi in Patna.[9]
