Jayanta Pathak Bio:
Jayanta has been relentlessly contributing to the Cinematic Arts as a Composer, Musician, Music Producer with such ease and finesse, that it is difficult to figure out which role he juggles best.
Pushing every possible slant with crafty music techniques and striking it with the perfect blend of technology, is what stood him out in the music industry, making it a unique affair and channeling new directions for him. Constantly crafting new melodies, he devised a way in which he could stealthily slip into the foray of digital music and sign it with his distinct compositional style.
Since the early 90′s he has been working as a musician in India and UK. His album catalog spans the 90′s and 2000 with his widely acclaimed efforts in more than 4 dozen major music albums (Josh, Jalwa, Moksh, Jazba (Nirmal Pandey), Back to Disco, Adaab Nusrat Saab, War of The DJ’s, Romanov Party Mania, Umang, Bollywood dream themes, Channel V popstars etc.)with artists of various genres from India and abroad, including pop stars and other music legends like Melissa Bell (from Soul 2 Soul band), Late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Jagjeet Singh and many leading play back singers from Indian Film Industry. He composed, produced sound tracks and back ground scores under various film productions in Georgia, USA, British feature films in London UK and Indian film industry in Mumbai, India since 1993. His involvement in few of the past and recent releases of Indian feature films (Bollywood) are Charas, Samay, Perfect Husband, Nachle London, Race 3 (2018), Half Girl Friend (2017) as Music Director, Music Conductor and Music Supervisor. Among the many firsts to his credit, was when for the first time in India he infused Indian classical and ethnic tunes into Modern Techno and House Music (Moksh, Josh, Jalwa). His iconoclastic and ethnic sounds have found their way in the hottest releases reaching the top of the charts MTV India, Channel V, B4U, Zee music, which he scored and produced with the best of DJ’s from India.
Preeti Uttam Bio:
Preeti Uttam is a playback singer in Bollywood, and is the daughter of music director Uttam Singh. She was one of the child singers in the very popular “Lakdi ki kath,i kathi peghoda” (“Masoom”, 1983). She went on to sing several Hindi film songs including the critically acclaimed “Charkha Chalati Maa” (“Pinjar”, 2003). After her first album “Preeti”, she worked on the album “Aathwan Sur – The Other Side of Naushad” (1998) in which she sang songs composed by the legendary music director Naushad along with singer, Hariharan. She later collaborated with her father on the album “Sur” (2002).
“I was 3 years old when my grandfather, Bridpal Singh Giany, took me under his musical wing. At 4 years of age, I sang for RaamLaxman in ‘Tumhare Bina’. When Pancham Uncle (R.D. Burman) heard me sing for the first time, he exclaimed to my father, Uttam Singh, who was a musician for him at that time, that “a star is born”. I was only 5 years old when PanchamUncle gave me the opportunity to sing “Lakdi ki kaathi, kathi peghoda” (Masoom). By the time I was 15, I had recorded in 18 languages. At 17, I sang for Illayaraja. I was at MithibhaiCollege, juggling a student’s life with my career as a playback singer. But, I didn’t want to be held back with 3-minute songs. So, I trained intensively in semi-classical music- first with Sultan Khan Saab, the noted Hindustani vocalist and sarangi player, and later with Pandit Ajoy Chakrabarty in Kolkata." - Preeti Uttam.
