Lou not suprised at Nobel for Bob Dylan

Press Trust of India  |  Shillong 

Lou Majaw, known for Bob Dylan's tribute shows, is not surprised at the Nobel Prize in literature being awarded to the legendary American songwriter and singer but wondered why it took so long.

"It (Nobel prize) is rather late. But we are happy to know that Dylan finally was recognised for his contributions in poetry, songs and music," Lou, also known as 'Tambourine Man' for his rendition of the famous Dylan song in most of his programmes across the country, said.



Dylan's rasping voice tells of decade of rebellion, has enthralled the music and peace loving tribals of and the north east.

Till date, he remains a huge cultural influence in the whole region where different ethnic groups are fighting for the preservation of their identities, he said.

Lou, who has celebrated every year without fail Dylan's birthday on May 24 for the past four decades, is hosting an evening for the Nobel laureate's fans this Sunday to celebrate his songs, poetry and music.

He is known for his rendering of Dylan songs "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are A-Changin", which once were anthems for the US anti-war and civil rights movements in the 1960s.

So deep is Dylan's influence in Lou's life that his only child, also an upcoming musician, is also named after Dylan.
