Kishore Kumar biography and lyrics

Posted by & filed under .

Born as Abhas Kumar Ganguly on August 4, 1929, commonly known as Kishore Kumar and honourably called Kishore Da, was one of those few singers who experimented with different styles of music.

Kishore was the youngest in his family and he preferred to sing and mimic K.L. Saigal. Once SD Burman had come to Ashok Kumar’s house to meet him and he heard Kishore Kumar singing. Burman actually thought it was Saigal singing and tried to figure out if he was there too. Burman came to know that it was Kishore singing, he appreciated and encouraged young Kishore to continue his interest in singing and develop a style of his own. Kishore, then, refined his own signature style.

He is largely known for perfecting yodelling. In Hindi film industry, yodelling became a trademark of Kishore Kumar. Many of his songs sound absolutely natural, like laughter.

Kishore Kumar used nonsensical terms into his songs that gave it an wholly a new feel. The ability to use his voice according to not just the scene, but also the actor is something that was really incredible of Kishore.
