Coke Studio Bangla’s next song ‘Shondhatara’ releasing today
The anticipation is over as Coke Studio Bangla is all set to treat music lovers with the release of "Shondhatara", the latest song from its second season, today in the evening.
The song will be released on the YouTube channel of Coke Studio Bangla at 8 pm. The song is voiced by Shayan Chowdhury Arnob and Sunidhi Nayak and composed by Adit Rahman.
Exploring the rich musical heritage of Bengal, "Shondhatara" pays homage to the widespread influence of Baul songs throughout the Indian subcontinent. Indian classical music greatly influenced Bangladeshi folk songs as well, creating a diverse tapestry of ragas and tunes.
In a unique fusion, Coke Studio Bangla has translated a popular Bandish into Bengali, bringing forth the soul-stirring "Shondhatara".
Bandish is set in a specific raga of Indian classical music, performed with rhythmic accompaniment by a tabla or pakhawaj, and melodic accompaniment by a sarangi, violin or harmonium.
Sharing her thoughts on the song, artiste Sunidhi Nayak expressed her excitement, saying, "My singing part in this song has been translated from a different language. Coke Studio Bangla always loves to surprise the audience with fresh arrangements. I believe the taste of innovation in the song will amaze the audience. I am grateful to Coke Studio Bangla for the opportunity to work on this platform, which has enriched me."
