Kolkata Girl Band Teetas Audio Music Album Mewa
The album Mewa consists of eight songs. Some of the songs in the album include Koyla kaade, Dalan Dili, Ekna kotha, Menoka and others. The whole sound scape for this album has been designed by Ablu Chakraborty. Koyla kader Thikababu and Ja ja lagor ja ja re have been penned and composed by Subhas Chakraborty and the other five songs are traditional. The band Teetas consists of Mary (vocal and conducts), Simi (vocals), Poulami (Vocals), Ablu (Keyboard), Hablu (Hand sonic and dhol), Sandip (lead guitar) and Piku (Bass Guitar).
“I am indebted to Ablu Chakraborty for many of the songs that have gained me much fame and popularity. I am also here because of his invite. I wish the girl band Teetas all the very best for the music album and hope they continue with their endeavor. Teetas, the very name connects me with Teetas, a river’s name” said music composer Debojyoti Mishra.
Speaking at the occasion actor Arindam Ganguly said “I have been to their earlier music album launch and they have the resilience and the guts to come out with something different from what the others are doing. As the only girl band in the city, I wish them all the luck and hope they continue with their good work in the long run”.
Priced at Rs. 75, Mewa will be a good music album to buy this coming Durga Puja. Get yourself drenched in the folk music and spend relaxing moments listening to the root music of India.
