Ganga by Ritwika Bhattacharya and Jim Ankan - a tribute to Dr. Bhupen Hazarika

Bards Paul Robeson and Bhupen Hazarika, led musical crusades against oppression towards the common man. While Robeson sang about the uncaring flow of Mississippi river to highlight the woes of the African American slaves, Hazarika reprimanded the restless Brahmaputra for the impoverished condition of Assam.

Ganga by Jim Ankan Deka and Ritwika Bhattacharya, merges the essence of Robeson's "Ol' Man River" and Hazarika's "Ganga Behti Ho Kyun" (original song "Bistirno Parore" in Assamese). A humble salutation to these legends.
