TILOTTAMAR GALPO a solo recitation album by Shouvik Bhattacharya, is all about the strain in human relations and ultimately we are all deeply concerned today. ABOGAHAN means to sink deeply. The name of the album suggests one should sink deeply into the relationship today and find the underlying pain in the background where someone waits only for the telephone from his beloved. The album was released on The Aatman Audio in presence of eminent singers like Jayati Chakraborty, Jojo Mukherjee, ace author like Pracheta Gupta, RJ Raja and other special guests from cultural world at Press Club Kolkata, today.
Shouvik Said, ‘ I had only two artists supporting the album like Rea and Priyanka from the very beginning. I am indebted to both of them for supporting the venture.. Subhajit Paul, the veteran classical artist worked and designed the music of the album from the core of his heart and finally it was mixed and mastered by Arnab Ghosh. I am also lucky to have Maitree Banik Chakroborty who has worked effortlessly for this album. ABOGAHON came into my mind in a flash while I was in my B.Ed College and ultimately it was materialized by Somnath Ghosal ,Chief, The AATMAN AUDIO..I convey my thanks and my heartfelt gratitude towards this person for giving me the opportunity to publish my debut solo audio recitation album”.
