Tapan Basu has always been mentioned by his Gurus with fondness. Dwijen Mukhopadhyay believed Basu will be a torchbearer in preserving the beauty and essence of traditional Bengali Music, and above all Indian Music, for generations to come. An admirer of Tagore, Basu organized the first musical event of his life, based on Tagore's work, at the tender age of fourteen at Rabindrasadan under the able guidance of Dwijen Mukhopadhyay. This show and a few others gave him the vision named "Ragranjani". An accredited artist for Kabipakhya(Rabindrasadan) and All India Radio, a banker by profession, the secretary of Uttarayani(till 1995) and a passionate music lover, Tapan Basu realised his vision and founded 'Ragranjani' in 1990. Since then, his creative work has travelled across the globe, been applauded by television media and veterans across the country.
In 2011, he was invited to commemorate the 150th Birth Anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore in a weeklong conference held in New Jersey, USA. Prof. Mohan Singh(Shantiniketan) was the singer for the event and the entire concert was based on Basu's research, script and direction. Apart from this, he has directed several concerts in USA, Canada, Thailand and Bangladesh. As a creative director, he has worked in over 100 television shows, been awarded Telesamman and several other prestigious awards and nominations. Today, his Ragranjani is one of the leading music labels of the country.
Basu believes in bringing out the best in others. Be it a child at the age of four, an young talented singer, or any creative enthusiast, Tapan Basu is a craftsman who grooms, directs and nurtures an individual's talent and showcases it to the world. Ragranjani defines this ideal of Tapan Basu. With the goal to preserve good music and carry forward the legacy of legendary musicians, Ragranjani inculcates the true spirit of music in aspiring musicians. Eventhough Tapan Basu holds the position of Founder and Director of Ragranjani Media and Entertainment, as a person, Basu is a teacher who inspires, a father who cares, a poet who foresees, and a magician who creates miracles with music and imagination.
