Kolkata, May 31 (Washington Bangla Radio / IBNS): Marking the 150th birth anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore, singer Sounak Chattopadhyay (interview) here on Monday released his album on Rabinsangeet (Rabindranath Tagore's songs) with the recitations of veteran actor and elocutionist Soumitra Chattopadhayay enriching the work.

Titled  'Notun Praan' (New Life), Sounak claims he has presented Rabindrasangeet in his own way without distorting the real essence of the original creations.

The album's another attraction is recitations performed by Soumitra Chattopadhyay and actress Chaiti Ghoshal.

"It was an exceptionally great experience to work with Soumitra Chattopadyay, his presence was important and significant," Sounak said. "It was a challenge to create something new and at the same time not to deform Rabindra sangeet. The theme of this album was newness."

Actress Chaiti Ghoshal said: "I liked the ideas as Sounak has showcased in this album and above all it was a dream to be associated with Soumita Chattopadhyay in this album."

Produced by Asha audio, the music has been arranged by Goutam Shome. Washington Bangla Radio is not affiliated with Asha Audio at this time and does not distribute Asha Audio's albums in digital MP3 download form world-wide.

"We have tried to take the audience on a tour of 'New', trying to look at it from numerous perspectives," he said.

"The music scape  has been inspired by creations of Mozart, Yanni and O.P. Nayyar," Sounak said.
