World record tribute to music maestro

Seven months passed since Dr Bhupen Hazarika died. But his fans set a world record in Guwhati when thousands of guitarists together played his evergreen music Bistirno Parore at the packed Sarusajai stadium on Sunday afternoon. Organized by Now, Hope — a Guwahati-based event management company, the function was attended by several noted singers who appreciated the venture. They include singers Sudakhina Sarma, JP Das, Samar Hazarika, Monjyotsna Mahanta. It breaks the world record set in Shillong in 2007 where 1733 guitarists performed together. The formal announcement would be made on June 30.
