Sayan Chowdhury, popular in Bangladesh as Arnob, is a new-age alternative Bengali singer / song-writer with a distinctive indie sound in his compositions that have taken the Bengali music world by storm. Arnob is a student of Shantiniketan, where he met Sahana. Arnob and Sahana are married.
Sahana is a fantastic singer, and Arnob a brilliant singer and composer. In this Rabindra Sangeet album, Arnob sets the music to Sahana's rendition of Tagore's songs - the result is fascinating. A far cry from the modern remix of Rabindrasangeet (oo la la Pagla Haoa types!), Arnob captures the subtle emotions of each song performed by Sahana in a uniquely sensitive music score, which is pleasurable to the ear and not shocking at all, despite the use of non-traditional instruments (for Tagore songs).
