This Odia adaptation of the most popular song of Suman Chattopadhyay (Kabir Suman), “Tomake Chai” (HMV: 1992) is a musical tribute to him and his connection with Odisha (especially Cuttack, his birthplace) and the Oriya language (which he picked up and uttered first before learning Bengali).
Songs of Suman Chattopadhyay, popularly known as Sumaner Gaan, redefined and revolutionized modern Bengali music in the early 90s. Also known as the Bob Dylan of Bengal, Suman has written, composed, arranged and sung around 800 songs.
