SVF Music has launched the much-awaited music single ‘Bohu Juger Opaar Hotey’ and it is streaming on the SVF Music official YouTube channel from yesterday. This soulful track is one of the age-old melodies of Rabindranath Tagore that transcends time. The hummable and serene track has been sung and re-arranged by renowned singer Babul Supriyo with the soundscape adding a pleasant modern relevance. Also, this is one of the very special productions of SVF Music as this is the first time that Babul Supriyo has associated with SVF Music for any project.
The song dates back to a famous poem ‘Malavikagnimitram’ by Kalidas and later in 1922, the song was composed by Tagore as a part of the celebration of the Barshamangal in Shantiniketan. The music video features the beautiful Bibriti Chatterjee and it has explored two eras (1942 and present) of poets/singer. While transcending the essence of rain and the month of Ashaar metaphorically, it pays tribute to the eternal poet Brahma. The concept behind the music video is that a fictional Malabika from the past and present will connect the two stories from two different eras, t giving it closure as both the poets find the discarded garlands of jasmine in present-day Calcutta. The video of the song has explored the visuals of early morning Kolkata for Ustaad Rashid Khan specifically while taking a trip on a boat across the river Ganges, whereas the song is based on Raag Kedar. Babul Supriyo singing this beautiful Tagore song, as the video goes on.
Babul Supriyo commented on his recreation and singing a Classic Tagore Song with Ustad Rashid Khan, “Bohu Juger Opar Hotey’ will touch everyone & the power of Rabindranath Tagore’s lyrics & tune will trigger different emotions in different minds based on their individual life’s experiences. I believe that from 18 to 80, everyone will be able to relate to it. My aspiration was to create something contemporary with this already super-popular Tagore Song previously sung by many iconic artists. Hope you will like it. Though I have had very long & successful association with SVF as a Playback Singer with many Hit Songs together, this is my first collaboration with SVF Music & it was an absolute pleasure to work with such a talented & professional team. I sincerely thank everyone from Rashid Bhai to Indradeep & from the Video Director Sudipto to Team SVF for making this ‘Dream Single’ a ‘blissful reality.”
Subhadip Choudhury, VP-Revenue (IP & TV) said, “First-time collaboration with Babul Supriyo & Ustaad Rashid Khan in one Single makes the project a very special production for SVF Music, on top of which it is a re-arranged rendition of Rabindra Sangeet in a modern soundscape, exploring the two eras of poets and singers.”
