ASSAMESE SONGS OVER THE YEARS: A CURSORY INQUEST

Dr. Sikhamani Sarma.

Abstract
The development of Assamese song can be traced back to Charyapadain terms of the fact that they were the first
written specimens of Assamese song and literature. Charyapadas were written between 8th and 12th century
under the influence of Buddhism. The first illustration of Assamese language can be found in the Charyageet of
Buddhist Sahajani Monk. Referring to the Charyageet Dr. BanikantaKakoti says, “Certain phonological and
morphological peculiarities registered in the Buddha Dohas have come down in an unbroken continuity through
early to modern Assamese ……modern Assamese in certain respects shows a closer approximation to the forms
and idioms preserved in Dohas” .Charyapadaswere technically better composed and thematically more sublime.
Lui Pa, a Buddhist Monk, used “Patmanjari Raga” in his first song. Despite being thematically profound and
complex, the texts of Charyapadas have got exquisite musical touch.

Key words: Despite being thematically profound and complex, the texts of Charyapadas have got exquisite musical touch.
