Noted artistes of two Bengals collaborate on a song

Six prominent singers of two Bengals (Bangladesh and West Bengal) have lent their voice to a special song titled ‘Sompriti O Sahosher Gaan’. Singers Tapan Chowdhury, Kumar Bishwajit, Chandan Sinha from Bangladeshi and Usha Uthup, Joy Sarkar and Raghab Chatterjee from West Bengal, have lent their vocal to the song. 

The song has been made for the BTV’s popular magazine programme ‘Anando Mela’. 

The lyrics of the song have been written by Bangladesh National Film Award-winning lyricist Kabir Bakul while Emon Chowdhury has composed and arranged the music of the track. 

About the song, Tapan Chowdhury said, “The lyrics, composition and arrangement of the song were very nice. The song depicts unity and courage beautifully. The singers also have sung it wholeheartedly.”

Chandan Sinha said, “After a long time, I have lent my voice to a new song. I always try to present something unique to the audience and this project is very special. I hope the audience will like this song.”

Kumar Bishwajit said, “I’m happy that two of my favourite singers Tapan Chowdhury and Chandan Sinha and three prominent Indian singers are my co-artistes in the song. I’m very hopeful about the song.”

Kabir Bakul said, “The title of the song is ‘Sompriti O Sahosher Gaan’. In this crucial time, our prayer is the same. Two neighbouring countries Bangladesh and India are passing a critical time due to coronavirus. We have made the song to encourage the people of the two countries.” 

The song will be aired on BTV’s magazine show ‘Anando Mela’ as a special segment at 10:30pm on Eid day. Produced by Mahfuza Akhter, popular actors Ferdous and Purnima will anchor the show.
