“A lot of people have contributed in making this musical journey of mine, a success. My friends, singer Basant ji, renowned tabla-player Guru Aman Kumar Mishra and my teachers and elders encouraged me at all stages and showered their blessings on me”, says Bhavani Kumar.
The versatile singer loves singing Bollywood as well as Sufi songs. On a platform where he could have sung any other song to lure the viewers, he chose to sing a song that has a regional touch to it because he believes that representing his roots on national television would give him inner satisfaction. Folk and regional songs have been losing their touch over the ages due to the changing tastes of the audience but through his performance, he proved that folk songs are indeed very melodious and rekindled the fading glory of folk singing.
“I am a singer and it is my responsibility to promote my cultural heritage and take it to another level. I believe that our Bhojpuri culture is very enriching and beautiful but due to certain wrong portrayals of our culture, people have developed a negative perspective regarding it. I think that not only as a singer but as a person also, it would be my privilege to take every possible step for glorifying the status of my state. Jai Bihar”, said the enthusiastic Bhavani Kumar Pandey who would like to establish Bhojpuri as a language that is incorporated in Bollywood just like other regional languages.
