‘Women Empowerment’ – A fusion music album dedicated to all the women launched in the city

Fusion music album – Women Empowerment by Pratik was recently launched in the city in the august presence of Actor Sabyasachi Chakraborty, Music Director Ashoke Bhadra, Metro Rail DGM Protyush Ghosh, Singer Sayani Palit, Surojit da (Bhoomi), Asmita Kar (Zee Sa Re Ga Ma) and Shrijita Mitra (Zee Sa Re Ga Ma Kids). The album is created as an ode to all the women who have carved a special place for themselves in the society. The album contains five tracks in total. The title track is named ‘Choo Lo Aasmaan ‘which is in Hindi language. The same track is also present in Bangla and English and has been sung by the upcoming singer Ms. Shrijita Mitra (of Zee Sa Re Ga Ma Pa kids fame).

The fusion track is called “Fire and Ice Together” and has Jazz & Funk fused with Hindustani Classical Raaga – Desh and Hard & Grunge rock fused with Raaga ‘Miya ki Malhar’. This type of fusion is a first of its kind as Hard & Grunge rock has never been fused together. The classical part of this track has been sung by Ashmita Kar who was recently seen in the superhit musical reality shoe Zee Sa Re Ga Ma Pa as one of the Top Ten finalist. The Hard Rock part has been rendered vocally by Argha Bannerjee.

The ‘Unplugged’ version of the title track gives depth to the album and has been sung by an upcoming singer Rakhi Biswas.

The music has been directed, arranged, played and programmed by Pratik Karmakar – Music Director at Colors Bangla and amongst the Top Ten Indian Guitarist. ( The list of Top Ten Indian Guitarist was published by Digitech and Blade Guitars recently and was judged by none other than Baiju Dharmajan who is considered as ‘God of Small Strings’ in India.)

Pratik came up with this unique fusion album to promote Indian Classical music in a different way which will appeal to young and old generations alike. Such experiment of fusing Rock Guitar with Indian Classical Raagas has seldom been tried in Bengal.

Pratik dedicates this album to his late Father Mr. Dulal Karmakar and his mother Mrs. Pratima Karmakar and to all the women who have been an epitome of beauty, strength, and intelligence. The success of Indian women across various walks of life has proven that they have earned this reputation very deservingly.
