The north east region of India is the abode of various caste and community living harmoniously. Asom ratna Dr. Bhupen Hazarika who was a minute observer and thinker of life and society had given a message in his each and every song. The subjects of his song are a wide field of study. He travelled from place to place and tried his best to re-establish the common binding of brotherhood among the different tribes living in Assam. In this paper, we are trying to explore the kind of songs that Dr Hazarika sang and composed in which he had reflected the social life of various castes, communities and tribes. The simplicity of rural life and the socio-culture of the tribal societies of Assam have been clearly reflected in his songs. He has not only shown the differences of folk culture of these tribes but also tries to establish a friendly relation among all these tribes living in Assam.
