Dur Dipobashini – Shawjeeb & Choir Bangla

8903244118802

ArtistAloud has a mammoth roster of artistes, rich with outstanding singing ensembles, but Choir Bangla – led in this instance by Shawjeeb, who is apparently a Toronto-returned Bangladeshi – is unique, performing traditional Bengali music without instrumental accompaniment. The style is, of course, known universally as acapella. Hearing the “song” for the first time was undeniably trying, but once heard on a number of occasions, it is certainly hair-raising, a rendition of what appears to be a traditional hymn whose simple and unadorned melody floats effortlessly. Certainly “Dur Dipobashini” highlights the warm harmonies and rounded tones of the choir’s singing style. It would certainly be interesting to listen to the entire album featuring this effort, “Notun Korey Pawa”, as “Dur Dipobashini” appears to be only a precursor.
