It’s an initiative to save the non-film Bengali music scene which is going through a bad phase. We still cherish songs from the 50’s till mid 90’s from S.D.burman, Kishore Kumar, Sandhya Mukherjee, Arati Mukherjee, R.D.Burman, Shyamal Mitra, Salil Chowdhury to Suman-Nachiketa-Anjan, Srikanta, Lopamudra, Antara, Indranil, Subhamita then what’s next?
Post mid-2000 the Bengali non-film music scene has experienced a rapid change. Private radio stations gradually stopped playing non-film Bengali songs of recent times, there is no room for new artistes even it is a quality song. It’s like a movement to revive the time we cherished and feel proud of. Lopamudra Mitra, Organizer-singer, Natun GaanerPabboni, said, ” It makes me sad when I see there is no room for an artist even after delivering quality songs if they are new in this scene. My question is then what’s the future of Bengali non-film music scene! It’s a very alarming issue for our industry. So it’s just an initiative to create a platform where we can enjoy the newborn songs by senior as well as by new artistes.It is to encourage those artists who love to create new songs.”
