Antara Chowdhury’s biography

Antara, Salil and Sabita's elder daughter started singing from an early age. She stunned everybody when she recorded that beautiful song in the film 'Minoo' with Manna Dey....'Teri galiyo.n mei.n hum aayee'. Antara became a household name when Salil composed over 25 children's songs for her. Before Salil, childrens songs were practically unknown in Bengal besides probably some compositions by Anando Shankar Roy.These songs changed that completely and are still extremely popular. In his typical style, Salil composed some wonderful songs such as 'O maago ma' and 'Bul bul paakhi moina tiyee'. These songs, although for children, often raised questions and made sharp comments on the social injustice. Since then Antara has matured into an excellent singer, well trained in Hindusthani classical music and western music. She is also a fine pianist, a talented composer and arranger. She had to struggle hard though to shake off her original image of a singer who only sang 'Childrens songs'.
