PRANER GAAN - music for the soul!

With the celebrations of Rabindranath Tagore’s 150th Birth Anniversary this year 2010 – 2011 in full swing, the emergence of Tagore Song Audio CD’s in the Bengali music market is really notable; even artistes who specializes in other genres of Bengali Music like Adhunik and Folk have also come out with Rabindra-sangeet (Tagore) CD’s this Puja. Mumbai stars like Shaan and Babul Supriyo and their respective Rabindra-sangeet CD’s are already ruling the charts competing with several Bengali Film Hits like Chirodini tumi je amaar, Challenge etc.

Kavita Krishna Murthy, Manomany Bhattacharya, Anasuya Chowdhury, Raghab Chatterjee's new Tagore song albums also holds a lot of promise among other Kolkata’s front-runner singers.

Amidst all these high profile albums making a marked debut is “PRANER GAAN”, a 12 song CD (Marketed by Music 2000) by Shashwatee Ray, Arpita Debnath and Krishna Dasgupta packs quite a punch, specially with its Surround sound intelligent system Mastering Stereo sound and fine presentation. The musical arrangement and Mixing is praiseworthy and stands apart for its crystal clear sound!

Shashwatee Ray and Arpita Debnath sing the Tagore songs with flamboyance and much emotion along with Krishna Dasgupta playing the Steel Guitar to near perfection.
This is an album to watch out for with a fabulous dozen selections of Rabindrasangeet:

1. Amaaro porano jaha chay
2. Amaar hiyar maajhe lukie chhile
3. Amaar mukti aloy aloy
4. Tumi kon kanoner phool
5. Khelaghar baadhte legechhi
6. Purano sei diner katha
7. Dinguli mor sonar khanchay
8. Boro Asha kore esechhi
9. Megher koley rod hesechhey
10.Ektuku chhoya laage
11.Jodi tare naai chinigo seki
12.Akaash bhora surjyo taara

A great collection indeed!!!
