Hitting the Right Notes
Timir’s onset into the world of music was not a smooth one. As a toddler, Timir could mimic the tunes of TV ads. However, his talent in music was completely discouraged by a certain Guruji. Though music had stayed away from him for years, destiny had something in plan for him. His seniors in college made him sing as a part of ragging. And music and Timir were once again together. Finally, taking the toughest call, he quit studies to focus on music. Timir joined Muzik Street as a keyboardist and later took up the role as the vocalist of the band. He was immensely praised by Nachiketa Chakraborty when Timir opened a gig for him. Muzik Street had gained much of Asansol’s attention when they participated in Band-e-Mataram. Muzik Street had Aninyda and Upal of Chandrabindoo as their mentors, completely unaware of the fact that a few years later, the same duo would give Timir a chance to debut in playback. Timir’s unconventional voice was praised by eminent musicians with Jeet Ganguly honoring him with the title of Bryan Adams of Bengal. Gradually Timir shifted his base to Kolkata and formed and joined Fakira while simultaneously increasing the number for playbacks to his name. With his unadulterated support for independent music and a mentor to newbies, Timir Biswas is now a sensation and a well-known face in the music industry.
