He was involved with this cultural world last year through his first solo folk album titled ‘Rongabeli’ – the rising sun, where he has written and tuned four songs out of six. Two songs of this album titled ‘Collegiya Suwali’ rendered with Priyanka Bharali and ‘Sui Saang Saang’ was highly appreciated by the Assamese music lovers.
The singer, despite knowing that the audio album market is not reliable at present, has released this album with a lot of hope and courage. The singer has shared his feeling about this album saying that, without going with the flow of current trend, he has tried to give the Assamese listeners some new taste of music through this album. The listeners also, after enjoying the songs, will realize it. That’s why he has appealed to the Assamese music lovers to listen to the songs and encourage him in his musical journey. ‘Parichay’ will definitely be a distinctive addition to the Assamese music world.
