Bande Utkala Janani On TV

This classic ode to Orissa is in a new form on Oriya Television. Featuring some greats of Oriya music - this video is well shot and sleek in appearance. Only thing missing is that some credits could have been given for the singers. I could identify Prafulla Kar, Pranab Pattnaik, Trupti Das and some others. But some of the faces are new - and I have stopped listening to new Oriya songs for quite a long time now to identify the new generation of singers.

Here is the video. Please leave a comment with a name of the singers if you can - just to give some credit to these forgotten all time greats.
