- Bhojpuri is a lokbhasha or old stories talked in 14 countries everywhere throughout the world and in real towns, urban communities of India. It is generally talked in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and a few sections of Madhya Pradesh. Lokbhasha is a report of society, development and society. Sentiments, for example, joy, pity, and so forth are communicated by this of normal individuals.
In the first place, on the off chance that we discuss Bhojpuri music, we ought to think about Bhojpur, named after the renowned thinker ruler and polymath of medieval India Raja Bhoj. Where it is … ? Three regions ARA, CHHAPRA from BIHAR and BALIA from U.P make today's BHOJPUR and the boli or dialect talked in Bhojpur is really Bhojpuri.
- It's an alternate matter that now even Avadhi, Banarsi, Maghai, Angika and even to some degree Maithli is likewise included as a piece of Bhojpuri society as individuals know it broadly. In any case, the center of Bhopuri boli is really restricted to just Ara, Chhapra and Balia. As indicated by me, Bihar is not investigated musically. It's generally the U.P side the country knows as Bhojpuri. Indeed, even in Bollywood it's generally the U.P people. My exertion is to familiarize with the first Bhojpuri dialect music. When I put myself totally in Bhojpuri examination work, my hunt ceased at two vital persons,first Bhikhari Thakur and second Mahendra Mishra.I picked Bhikhari Thakur. How enlivened I am by Bhikhari Thakur's life, how the legend has molded the eventual fate of Bhojpuri music. Bhikhari Thakur melodies are rich in symbolism and substantial in Bhojpuri lingo.
- Furthermore, I am all that much worried about the legacy of Bhikhari legacy to my cutting edge. We need to know the legitimacy of Bhojpuri music in its unique and crude structure to present to the world particularly to each one of those growing vocalists/craftsman. Today, if asked to the present day eras about Bhikhari Thakur, they will just fulfill themselves saying he was THE SHAKESPERE OF BHOJPURI Writing and… … ! Also, some will simply sing an exceptionally cleaned form of Bidesia. Among the masses of Bihar and other Bhojpuri-talking ranges, he needs no presentation.
- Be that as it may, the alleged standard 'society', like dependably, has schemed to keep mum about his commitment, effectively dodging, notwithstanding specifying his name and have full ceased him with giving the title of THE SHAKESPERE OF BHOJPURI LITERATURE.Hence, there are no genuine reported records of his works till now. Why?? There are associations who are additionally attempting to resuscitate HIM. In any case, for all intents and purposes, none could draw out THE ARTISTE from the legend BHIKHARI THAKUR. Presently here, I would prefer not to assume the acknowledgment, yet yes I think I am honored and the anointed one to think and record this undertaking. It's my swing to give something I can as a Bhojpuri artiste. I am attempting to bring the first energy and wealth of the Bhikhari Thakur society structures to the Overall so that individuals from the world over can encounter the innovation and lavishness of Bhojpuri music. This undertaking will create a mass enthusiasm on Bhojpuri music in a class like WORLD MUSIC classification. I trust… this is an attempt with a reason.
- My approach is some sort of self-portraying. The entire excursion, from understanding the most extreme need to enrapture the legend musically, to the finishing of the entire sound - is my strategy. Myself being the hero of "the Legacy of Bhikhari Thakur" I need to impart this ecstatic experience to all concerned. When I understood that I need to assume the liability to resuscitate Bhikhari musical zone, I was really stressed. As a Bhojpuri artist it was my smoldering yearning, however there was no such musical documentation anyplace.
- I had gone by to numerous remote ranges in Bihar to assemble learning about Bhikhari Thakur's creative practices. At that point one fine day in a remote town called Bakhorapur in Ara,Bihar, I was going to experience an extremely shining snippet of my life. I arrived for a social appear. Prior to my execution one extremely matured artiste, around 95 years of age came and performed. His execution was so natural, his voice, gracious my god!! I swallowed. I was excited to meet him as he was a nartak from the first Bhikhari Thakur mandali.
- I bowed and took ashirvaad from him and the fantasy to make a sound on Bhikhari Thakur musical time was going to change into reality. I have heard numerous artiste singing Bidesia and in movies too. It was great yet some way or another for me it was a cleaned adaptation. This old man had a totally distinctive presentation. At that point I returned home to Mumbai, again got occupied in expert duties. Yet, that longing was all the while living inside me. I attempted to discover BHIKHARI THAKUR on web, fizzled. Sought books about him however futile. At that point one fine day, a nearby Patna artiste concocted the 'Bhikhari Thakur Rachnawali' by Rashtrabhasha Parishad, Bihar.
- I was so glad to get it in my grasp and began concentrating on it, about the internal truths of the entire social, political and otherworldly components of the Bhikhari time zone. Be that as it may, again one test raised, where to get the first thekas (cadence) and unique structures as sung the way Bhikhari Thakur used to. Again I needed to visit Bakhorapur, meet that rural nartak and solicitation him to sing for me. He comprehended my aims, concurred and the neighborhood villagers helped me to record the rural nartak with his vadya mandali (artists). Presently I was prepared with the documentation part. Second period of this sound task was going to begin in an expert music recording studio in Mumbai.
