But the beginning of the year will not be a promising one for band music lovers. No band, except Lalon, will release an album, against the backdrop of the ongoing dispute between and music producers’ association, with regards to royalty sharing.
Lalon will release its third album ‘Pagol’ featuring eight experimental folk based fusions – five of which are Lalon songs, two songs composed by Shah Abdul Karim and a collected song. Sound Machine has produced the album. Popular singer Krishnokoli will release her third solo album ‘Bonophul’ targeting the Pahela Baishakh celebration. Speaking about the album Krishnokoli said, ‘There will be nine tracks in the album and I am hoping to bring it out in the market within the second week of April through Bengal music.’
Another popular singer Balam will release his fourth solo album featuring 10 songs, as part of the Pahela Baishakh festivity. Sangeeta has produced the album.
