Tagore Songs by Amit Kumar on TIPS
On this occasion, Amit Kumar also released an audio mp3 “Amazing Amit Kumar” comprising of his Hindi film hits on TIPS. This was followed by a cake cutting ceremony to celebrate the ten years of his fan club and also the announcement of his next project. The album consisting of Tagore songs has been produced by Sudipto Banerjee, Soumitro Banerjee and the music has been arranged by Debjit Roy.
Speaking at the occasion Debjit Roy said “I made him sing the songs over and over again so that it sounded all right. He has not listened to Rabindrasangeet before properly. He has just listened to the songs of Tagore during his school prayers. However that also helps as you have heard the song and accordingly can render it when you are singing it”.
Sandip Ray who knew the singer from a very young age said “We were all waiting for the day when he will be bringing out an album on Tagore songs. It is high time and I am looking forward to the album”.
Amit Kumar shared some funny incidents about his singing career and also some stories about his late father Kishore Kumar with the audience.
Team Sholoana Bangaliana wishes the singer all the very best for his future endeavors and hopes that his fan club continues to flourish in the coming years too.
