Musicians and real life couple Joy Sarkar and Lopamudra Mitra collaborated after eight years for a Rabindrasangeet album titled Akash the infinite. The album release ceremony took place in the presence of Sourav Ganguly, Dona Ganguly and other eminent dignitaries.
Four Tagore songs namely Akash amay bhorlo aloye, Eki labonye purno prano, Mor bina othe kon sure baji and Bohe nirantaro ananta anandadhara feature in this album.
The last album that the couple did together was Ananda-the Ecstasy. Akash the infinite is their fifth album together.
Speaking at the event, Joy Sarkar said “I have kept the main essence of the song intact. I have not tampered with that. Now that the work is done, I am tensed as to how the audience will react to our effort. We hope that they love the effort that we have put in making the album”.
The album has been sponsored by Boroline. A video of the song Eki labonye purno prano was also shown at the event.
Lopamudra Mitra thanked Joy Sarkar for being there for her always. While explaining about the title of the album, she said that these four songs explore the infinite both within and in this universe.
Priced at Rs 150, the album is readily available at online and retail stores.
