The Video Teaser of much awaited music album Nisarga Madhuri by Soumita Saha was launched yesterday on Youtube on the eve of Bengali New Year (Poila Boisakh 2017). Nisarga Madhuri takes you on a journey through various seasons of the year. It has the rendition of Rabindranath Tagore’s Riturongo combined with Indian classical music, in an attempt to create a musical portrait of various seasons. The whole project involves blending of Tagore’s songs for every season with relevant ragas and raginis, in an attempt to thank the nature for its sweetness bestowed upon us.This Teaser, which is sequel to the teaser launched on April 10, begins with Raaga Vairabi in the voice of Soumita Saha. In Indian classical music Vairabi is a raaga that depicts rising of sun and advent of summer as well. It begins with the poem of Rabindra Nath Tagore, Namo Namo hey Bairagi in which he imagines Summer as a recluse and pays it a tribute by kowtow. Then it begins the song ‘Esho hey boisakh’, welcoming the summer season. It requests it to bestow fresh air, like the breath of a sage, to make the ill spring out. The summer is requested to clean all drivel that has accumulated over the past year and take away all nostalgia, songs that are put behind. Let all sorrows be swept away.
