INRECO celebrated the World Music Day along with the Weavers Studio by releasing two audio CD’s Mouno Ichche and Swapner Kotha. The launch was graced by Ratul Shankar, Dev Sen, Mithun Mallik, Kaya (Shatadru, Arindam), Irene Sarkar and Deepabali Dutta. Anupam Roy could not be present at the music release occasion as his family member was unwell.

This is the first time in Bengali that compositions by eminent musician Ilaiyaraja will feature in these two music albums. Ilaiyaraja is one of the legendary music-composers from South India. He has composed music for more than one thousand films which in itself is a record.
