musicians from three different genres for a mesmerizing unplugged performance straight from the heart
on May 4 at ICCR. Presented by Protha and rightly calling it “Lopamudra Mitra and Different Soul
Mates”, the brainchild of Lopamudra culminated into a musical extravaganza where artists expressed
their souls through their music revealing layers of a different Lopamudra with different thought.
The concert was attended by well known artists like Joy Sarkar, Tanmay Bose, Sujoy Prosad Chatterjee

Lopamudra said, “Different Soul Mates is establishing a unique concept of experimental and traditional
bridge of music, which music lovers have never heard before. We definitely presented our own original
music along with baul and Rabindrasangeet. The idea is to go with the flow and improvise and. Theirs is
a lot more to come.”
