Video: Audio Music Album Launch of Ghalibnama
A compilation of Mirza Ghalib’s creations in Bengali titled Ghalibnama was released in the august presence of Srijato, Shubhamita, Pandit Tanmoy Bose, Mahua Lahiri (Director, Asha Audio), Srikanta Acharya, Prattyush Bandopadhyay.
“This is my first foray into composing music. But I will say that I found translating Ghalib was more difficult. He is an icon and his writings are sacred books to me. It was such a difficult job to pick and select which creations of him to be taken up for the translation job. Hope the audience loves it” said Srijato.
Six popular Ghazals of Ghalib have been translated in this album. The music of the album has been arranged by Prattyush Bandopadhyay.
“I was a bit skeptical initially that whether I will be able to do justice to the songs. Srijato asked me to listen to the songs and then I can decline if I did not find them appealing. I listened to the song and I was hooked to it. This is how I became a part of this album” said Shubhamita.
Despite the bad state of the music industry due to piracy, Srikanta Acharya said “If the artists were concerned about sales and what happened to the industry, then no one would have made music albums. But that is not the case. This album is for the individuals who have good taste in music. They will be able to understand it’s worth quite well”.
The album is priced at Rs 150 and readily available at all music stores in Kolkata.
