Meet Assamese singer, lyricist Deeg Diganta as a successful artist of India

Social Media Platforms

Deeg Diganta (Diganta Baruah) since his childhood has been extremely passionate about music. At the age of 6, he started her formal training in Indian Classical Music. Initially, he faced a lot of challenges as he juggles to find out a career path as he thought of studying medicine. “I become very anxious whenever I see blood although everyone close to me thought I would end up becoming a medical professional but eventually I made up my mind that music is my go-to desire in life,” he says. And one fine day he mustered the courage to confess to his parents about his ambition by writing a letter to them.

Right after his honest confession, his parents supported his decision and soon after that, it was a no-stopping ride for his.  “Music was something which is in our tradition. My father used to play banjo and mandolin, my paternal uncle and aunts were also singers and musicians who encouraged me in life,” Diganta adds.

Further, he went on to complete his formal advanced training in Indian Classical Music. She fondly expresses that he always had a dream of learning music under the aegis of renowned classical singer duo Padma Bhushan recipient  Rajan – Sajan Mishra from the Banaras Gharana of Music and with her dedicated approach towards her art she soon had the opportunity of meeting them in person.

“May be somewhere my stars are aligned as I had the fortune to meet them,” he says. It was a lifetime experience for his that gave him the right path to his future journey ahead. In the present era, we see around us that original content is always appreciated by the audience and listeners especially when it comes to music. As a youth influencer herself, Diganta is always active on social media and interacts with his admirers regularly.

He is very optimistic about the fact that one needs to constantly hone one’s talent and not fall prey to societal standards of getting a 9 to 5 job and not putting up music or any art form just as an additional activity or hobby.

With the cutting edge media, innovation and digitization of technology new avenues are emerging for the upcoming singers and musicians, Diganta as a youth influencer himself is making a mark by bringing a new dimension to our traditional folk music “Bihu” with his popular song “Aghuni Abeg”, which is a global hit today.
