Link Back To Favorite Male Singers

Krishna Chandra Dey (K. C. Dey) was a successful Bengali singer who achieved some success in Hindi songs also. He was Manna Dey's paternal uncle and he encouraged Manna Dey to become a singer. He became blind while he was still a child. I don't know much about him other than he was a good singer and I have heard some of his songs. Unfortunately there is not much information available on the internet either. I hope that you will listen to his songs and want to hear even more. If you have other songs of his then please do share with us.

In those days it was not uncommon for the actor to sing it on screen and some one else to record the gramaphone version. This is why different versions of the same song can be found. Unfortunately, the movie versions have some static.
