Aakash Bolechhilo – Rimita Mukherjee

 

Rimita_Artwork03 copy

Heralding the relentlessly appealing pop-folk sounds of the ’70s – on the international scene, remember Lobo, Gordon Lightfoot, England Dan & John Ford Coley et al? – arrives a Bangla-sung ditty from Kolkata hailing vocalist, Rimita Mukherjee, who began her singing career in 1995, and diversified into composing ten years after.  On “Aakash Bolechhilo”, the song commences with mere whistling, followed by the scarce-to-hear-anymore harmonica, before they are joined by guitar [electric and acoustic] and the vocal hooks of Rimita, making the song close to irresistible. Taking listeners into a pop-folk vein without eclipsing the core sound of Rimita’s singing and the accompanying combination of harmonies, instrumentation, whistling, and voice provide a hauntingly beautiful excursion into the delectable sounds of “Aakash Bolechhilo”.
