The album launch of Sharoni Sen’s Gaan Diye Je Tomay Khunji: In Search of You – A Collection of Tagore songs close to the heart was launched recently. The album was presented by Batch 99 and Nirjharer Swapna. Present at the music launch event were Aparna Sen and Pramita Mallick.
This is Sharoni’s first solo music album and the songs in it are varied in content. Some bear a strain of nostalgia and the pain of separation while others are purely spiritual and speak of the sublime.
Speaking at the launch, Sharoni mentioned that her grandmother Sunanda Dasgupta was her mentor for music when she was a little girl. The album is a tribute to her grandmother and showcases the style of singing that she would have loved to hear.
Aparna Sen who also graced the event said that she was in search of a music trainer for Shabana Azmi for her upcoming film Sonata. A relative referred Sharoni’s name as a possible teacher. “Shabana still is in awe of her as she is one of the most intelligent teachers she has ever met. She was jittery till the very end and it was Sharoni who gave her the confidence to record her voice. Shabana sang two very difficult Rabindra Sangeet- Aji Jhore Raate and Sukhe Aandhare Ekela Ghore for the film.
The album is available at all leading music stores!!
