BH CORRESPONDENT, Kolkata: Durga Puja is incomplete without the bouquet of puja special songs and though the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted all plans, National Award-winning singer Rupankar Bagchi has recorded Samay Thomke Daray for the festival.
Samay Thomke Daray is composed by Shiladitya-Raj. The duo has previously presented soulful compositions in various film and non-film albums wherein singers like Asha Bhonsle, Amit Kumar, Usha Uthup, Kumar Shanu, Abhijeet and many others have sung. Shiladitya Chaudhury, besides being a communication strategist and an entrepreneur, is into music. On the other hand, Raj is a chartered accountant by profession and a music aficionado at heart.
“This year is all gloomy. Bengalis, however, are prepping up for the biggest festival of the year by adhering to the restrictions. We felt Pujor Gaan is something that will boost the moral under the given circumstances, hence the idea was formed and Samay Thomke Daray saw the light of the day. We are happy to work with Rupankar once again. Being an ace performer, he has excellently crooned the song in his mellifluous voice,” said composer Shiladitya and Raj.
The song, written by Saikat Chattopadhyay is being produced by Ministry of Muzik and will be available in its YouTube Channel.
