The trio of Sutirtho [vocalist/composer], Simon [guitarist], and Dipayan [percussion] are the members behind the band that goes by the name of ‘SaMcara’, which apparently means – in Sanskrit – “being/walking together”. Their song, “Bapu”, is a humorous dedication to the Father Of The Nation whose ideals may be fine in theory but, as analysed in the song, is a little suspect on the practical side of life. The satire is provided a sweet, clean treatment by saMcara, whose harmonies shine in this pristine setting of “Bapu”. The revised lyrics of “Raghupathi Raghava Rajaram” – interspersed with the main song – surprises here, both in attitude and in arrangement. This is fun music at its best, but with an ethnic touch!
