Chaka – Shawjeeb


The Toronto-to-Dhaka artiste who simply goes by the name of Shawjeeb has, in reality, Tanveer Alam as a prefix, just like “Chaka” is prefixed by guitar and bass prior to the entry of his vocals. The music is appealingly positive where you actually come away feeling uplifted. In fact, on “Chaka”, it is the sound of Shawjeeb’s distinctive voice coupled with the unusual tuning of his guitar, rather than the specific lyrical content provided by Indraneel Chattopaddhyaya, that pulls the listener in. “Chaka” convincingly establishes Shawjeeb as a talented singer and interpreter, making songs his own with his gritty soul-folk voice and urgent guitar strums, which also conveys the strength of his repertoire.
