Two Brothers, an event that combined music, song and conversation, was organised here to celebrate the creative genius of of late music maestro Bhupen Hazarika and his late singer-composer-brother Jayanta.

The event, organised Monday by the Centre for North East Studies and Policy Research (C-NES), Guwahati, in collaboration with the India International Centre and OIL India Limited, was hosted by Sanjoy Hazarika of C-NES.

While showcasing the extraordinary range of their creativity over several decades, the programme, which was held a day after Bhupen Hazarika's birth anniversary, also witnessed performances by Jayanta's son, Mayukh and his wife Laili with musicians from the capital. Sunita Bhuyan, a known violinist from Mumbai, presented some of the brothers' compositions.

Filmmaker Kalpana Lajmi, a long-time companion of the Dadasaheb Phalke award winner Bhupen Hazarika, was also present at the event.

Bhupen Hazarika was an established singer, lyricist, filmmaker and one of India's best-known balladeers who had composed soulful music for films like "Rudaali", "Saaz" and "Gaja Gamini".

His brother Jayanta is remembered for songs like "Aagoli botahe kopale kolore paat" and "Krishna chura".
