A DurgapujaOnline.com Report
The 7th edition of Vodafone Agomoni was organised at Najrul Manch on the eve of Mahalaya. The night long musical program was a mixture of Rabindra sangeet, classical, folk and fusion music. Soumitra Chatterjee inaugurated the evening in his trademark fashion. He won the hearts when he recite Rabindranath Tagor's “Nimantran”. Bratati Bandhopadhyay followed him with her masterpieces. The next to mesmerize the audience and taking to the world of Music was Shrikanto Acharya and lopamudra.
Every genre of musical performance kept the audience captive. Violin Brothers set the high standard with their east west fusion. Classical or fusion music cannot be complete without the likes of Ajay Chakraborty, Usha Uthup, and Bickram Ghosh. Chaiti Ghosal and Satinath Mukhopadhyay were awesome while compering the show.
Rupankar was successful with his melody and our favourite Ushadi was full of energy to make the audience dance.
“The Agomoni programme is a nice initiative of Vodafone Essar Kolkata. You cannot see such combination of music from every genre anywhere other than this”, said Srikanto Acharya to durgapujaonline when he was in a light mood. He was very excited to know about durgapujaonline and said, “It’s of course a nice effort in this modern time when people like us usually don’t get time to hop pandals. Many of my friends reside outside India and they really miss Kolkata Durgapuja. I think it would be great if you can arrange photographes of some of the prominent pujas of Kolkata and upload in your website”.
Percussionist Pandit Bickram Ghosh with the dhakiis was the centre of attraction and received loads of applause from the audience.
