India’s pioneering Bangla Literary Festival Apeejay Bangla Sahitya Utsob today launched its Theme music at Oxford Bookstore. Renowned musician Surojit Chatterjee has used Tabla, Sitar and Flute to compose the ABSU Theme music to encompass the essence of Bengal and its literature. Swagat Sengupta, Director of Apeejay Bangla Sahitya Utsob speaking to reporters said, “ABSU aims to bring in new elements for its audiences since inception and one of our endeavor for our milestone fifth edition is to give ABSU fans their very own ABSU theme music. Surojit Chatterjee has devoted his time composing the theme music for our Utsob because he shares the love for Bangla Language and appreciates the effort we are making to celebrate it. I am also delighted to see innumerable audiences being drawn to Oxford Bookstore Kolkata round the year as we began to focus on various facets of Bengal and its literature in between two ABSUs. Various online and offline endeavors are underway to extend the Utsob to the masses and the Theme music is a very significant initiative that we are announcing today in the run up to ABSU 2019 in November. Apeejay Bangla Sahitya Utsob venturing into creating a signature tune speaks volumes about the response from the Utsob fans and followers. Patra Bharti and Oxford Bookstores have inaugurated ABSU inside Oxford Bookstore. Tridib Kumar Chattopadhyay, Publisher at Patra Bharati and co-presenter of the festival since its inception, spoke about the journey of the festival, its growth, the various associations with organizations and partners and the authors and sessions expected during the main festival. He commented “Literature and Music are intertwined with each other. Thus, we thought that our Apeejay Bangla Sahitya Utsob, which started, in a small way, four years ago and has scaled massive heights since then, needs to have a theme music. This is the need of the society today and that is why today we are launching the theme song..
