100 singers and guitarists from Kolkata sing “Pal” to pay tribute to late singer

A few days after the unfortunate death of famous KK playback singer, whose real name was Krishnakumar Kunnath, a group of musicians from Kolkata came together to pay a moving tribute to the late singer. The singer died at the age of 53 after performing at a college festival held at Nazrul Mancha, an auditorium in South Kolkata. His death came as a shock to many as condolences and prayers flooded social media.

From Bollywood stars to netizens, many have paid tribute to the singer and remembered his contribution to the Bollywood music industry over the years. Some of his memorable hits include Tadap Tadap Ke is Dil, Haule Haule, Jab Bhi Koi Haseena, it’s disco time and more.

Kolkata musicians pay tribute to KK

According to a report by Hindustan Times, a music group called B-Garden Buskers held an event at Nandan Theater in Kolkata to remember KK, who breathed his last in the city. 100 guitarists and 100 singers gathered to participate in the tribute by singing the song of KK with emotion ‘Buddy’ in synchronization.

In an interview with the outlet, a member of the music group Santanu Naskar revealed that many people have expressed their desire to attend an event to honor the late singer. “While we were planning a mass tribute of 100 singers and 100 guitarists, unexpectedly more than 300 people came to Nandan,” he said.

Santanu Naskar further claimed that the event was not only an attempt to pay tribute to the late singer but also to “repair the bond between Kolkata and the artists”. He also called KK’s death in the city “unaccepted and shameful” for Kolkata fans, pointing out how he came from Mumbai to Kolkata to perform but never returned to his family. ”Maybe we failed because of our negligence, so the initiative is to repent for the loss of KK. Although we can’t undo it, we want to restore faith in the music,’ the band told the outlet.

In the latest development regarding the KK death case, attorney Ravishankar Chatterjee has filed a PIL and requested a CBI investigation into the case. It comes after the Kolkata Police Chief confirmed that there was no situation where participants were running out of space at Nazrul Manch.
