The release of Yaadein by Santoor players Chiradip and Jamuna got a starry turn-up
Son of a prolific musician, Chiradip Sarkar had his inception into the world of music through the ‘Taalim’ in Tabla by his father and first mentor Late Pandit Chandi Das Sarkar at a budding age as a toddler. The musical journey that began by following his father’s footsteps was eventually destined in the waking of an established santoor player, was guided, navigated, and steered through every obstacle by the pole star of his walk into fame, the santoor legend Pandit Tarun Bhattacharyya.
Inspired by the creations of his guru, musical genius Pandit Tarun Bhattacharyya, Chiradip held a cherished dream to venture into the avenues of music direction, composition, and music arrangements to give birth to a lyrical piece of his own. After performing in several countries as a santoor player and listening to an ocean of musical pieces, Chiradip ultimately took up an adventure to create a complete song of his own composition, lyrics & arrangements, which is nothing but a completely new experience for him.
His lyrics and touching melody with a tone of melancholy has become alive with the vocal of enormously talented singer Jamuna Kumari Damai, though both of them remain occupied in their job their practice of music is on such a serious note that music becomes their reason for the beginning of a new day.
The song Yaadein is a true love song wrapped with the tone of tragedy, loss, and sadness. Along with the use of Classical Instruments like Flute, Santoor, Violin, Tabla, and Chiradip also went de novo for the music arrangement part. This particular song combines a few eminent musicians all together, the galaxy of stars is Soumyajyoti Ghosh on Flute, Indradeep Ghosh on Violin, Tuhin Karmakar on Tabla, Avik Ganguly on Piano & programming, Again Avik Ganguly & Chiradip Himself for arrangements and also santoor played by Chiradip himself. Sanjoy Ghosh from Studio Resonance (Kolkata) has looked after the sound mixing and mastering of the song, which gets released recently in the presence of Pandit Tarun Bhattacharya, ace composers like Debojyoti Mishra, and Joy Sarkar. Chiradip and Jamuna said, ” It’s really a blessed moment at our end that such musical genius’ have appreciated our music and graced our release function.”
