Rabindra Sangeet (Bengali: রবীন্দ্রসঙ্গীত Robindro shonggit), also known as Tagore Songs, are songs written and composed by Rabindranath Tagore. Tagore was a prolific composer with around 2,230 songs. The songs have distinctive characteristics in the music of Bengal, popular in India and Bangladesh. It is characterised by its distinctive rendition while singing which includes a significant amount of ornamentation and is filled with expressions of romanticism. The music is mostly based on Hindustani classical music and folk music of Bengal.
Rabindra Sangeet merges fluidly into Tagore's literature, most of which—poems or parts of novels, stories, or plays alike—were lyricised. Influenced by the thumri style of Hindustani music, they ran the entire gamut of human emotion, ranging from his early dirge-like Brahmo devotional hymns.They emulated the tonal color of classical ragas to varying extents.
