Assamese Folk has been an intrinsic part of the South Asian diaspora. And when one talks about Assamese Folk there is no way to bypass Bihu or Bihu Songs and Bihu Dance. One of the major Folk forms originating in this South Asian landscape is the colorful Bihu Dance and Songs.

Bihu denotes a set of three different cultural festivals of Assam and celebrated by the Assamese people around the world. Bihu is also used to imply Bihu dance and Bihu folk songs. The Rongali Bihu or the Bohag Bihu is an important festival of Assam. The most important festivals of Assam are the Bihus, celebrated with fun in abundance by all Assamese people irrespective of caste, creed, and belief. In a year there are three Bihu festivals in Assam – in the months of Bohaag (Baisakh, the middle of April), Maagh (the middle of January), and Kaati (Kartik, the middle of October). The Bihus have been celebrated in Assam since ancient times through various Assamese Folk tradition, primarily Bihu Dance and Songs. Each Bihu coincides with a distinctive phase in the farming calendar. The most important and colorful of the three Bihu festivals is the Spring festival “Bohag Bihu” or Rongali Bihu celebrated in the middle of April. This is also the beginning of the agricultural season.

This album “Gagana” is a classic Bihu song compilation that showcases the true colorful aspect of this melodious and groovy art form. Bihu is a genre of music or dance that is based on the groove that plays a pivotal role. Bihu as an art form is truly expressed in this album. Bihu as a musical genre has developed over centuries. Though this album deals with more modern contemporary sounds it still holds the essence of Assamese Folk song. Especially songs like Gagana and Phul Phulile Ki Hobo deserves special mention. Overall this is a feel good compilation for any Bihu Music lover.
