The music of Assam,a state in the northeastern part of India,can be divided into various categories of folk music. Assamese Songs can primarily be categorized into two broad formats which are primarily Assamese Folk Songs and Assamese Pop Songs. Assamese Pop Songs in another way is largely a part of the Assamese Film Songs genre. In the modern era most popular artists of Assamese origin have modified and modernized their art form to cater to the local popular demands. There is no precise attestation to substantiate the dawning of Assamese music, however, it could be stated that Assam has been musically affluent since the beginning of the mighty Brahmaputra. The native music of Assam including Bihu songs, Bodo, Karbi and Mising songs are structured and sung to the Pentatonic scale exactly similar to Chinese Traditional Music, an indication of the ancient Chinese influence on Assamese Culture. Furthermore, the tunes are structured in a pyramid, in contrast to the music of rest of India which is meend based or essentially linear in format. The modern day Assamese Pop music like any other parts of India is majorly backed up by the Film Music genre. A chunk of Assamese Pop culture is in other words actually Assamese Film Songs. This Assamese Pop Music genre is also heavily influenced by the rich folk culture of Assamese Songs. Most of these Pop Songs are in reality Assamese Folk Songs urbanized into modern day interpretations by using very urban and modern instrumentation and arrangements.

This album is a classic example of Assamese Pop and Film Music genre. Anamika Nath is the main artist who has rendered her beautiful and melodious voice for these tracks. This album is a collection of Pop or Modern Assamese Songs which has witty but intelligent lyrical content and a very fresh and modern sound. The beautiful arrangements and instrumentation is worthwhile, specially songs like Kar Babe and Xita Jonoker Kumari deserves a special mention. Overall this is a delightful Assamese Pop or Film music compilation that is worth a listen.
