Bengali film industry. He is most known for his Bollywood songs from
the 1950's and 1960's. In his career, he recorded approximately 2000

West Bengal. When he was young, his family shifted to Calcutta.
There he grew up and attended Mitra Institution school of Bhawanipore.
After he graduated from Intermediate, he attended Jadavpur University and
began studying engineering.Hemant Kumar's interest in music began
early. He sang his first song in All India Radio in 1933. He was
only 13 at the time.However it was never clear that Hemant Kumar would become
a singer. His original training was in engineering, but he dropped out
of the University to pursue other paths. Initially he tried his hand at
writing; he even managed to have a short story published in a major Bengali
magazine. But after a while it became clear that his calling was
music.Hemant Kumar had a reasonable degree of formal training in music.
He had several teachers. The major portion of his training seems to
have been under Sailesh Duttagupta. He also studied under Phani
Banerjee, and received his training in Rabindra Sangeet under Anadi
Dastidar. Later he was a disciple of the great Faiyaz Khan.
Unfortunately this last training did not last very long, it ended with the
death of Faiyaz Khan in 1950.
