Odia Rangabati Song on MTV Coke Studio by Sona Mohapatra and Rituraj Mohanty.
Rangabati is Odisha’s most popular folk song from the Sambalpur region. This song was recorded for the first time in the mid 70’s in the voices of Jitendra Haripal & Krishna Patel with additional lyrics by Mitrabhanu Guintia & music by Prabhudatta Pradhan.
On this platform it is re-interpreted as a beautiful bi-lingual conversation of Sambalpuri & Tamil . The eternal adoration of the beloved in Rangabati is connected to the love for one’s roots & mother in the Tamil Rap & finally celebrates the love for one’s motherland in Bande Utkal Janini . Sona Mohapatra sings an ode to her home state Odisha in her milestone 10th year as a music artiste & is joined by the rapper duo Tony & Rajesh from Dharavi, Mumbai & the latest musical star from the state of Odisha , the supremely talented Rituraj Mohanty.
