TomaakE Chaa_iListening to the music of Netaji Bose, I got a little interested in Bengali popular music and got a friend to share some of the songs in his collection. They were mainly film songs sung by Kishore, but there was one Bengali pop song called tomaakE chaa_i which is not about Darjeeling tea, but translates to I want you... (unless if it is more finely nuanced than that).
Sung (and in all likelihood composed) by Suman Chatterjee, who according to my friend brought a new sound to Bengali popular music along with the likes of Nachiketa Chakraborty, the orchestration is a little dated. So you hear some synth beats popular earlier, especially the "Dhich-uh-kuh-dhich" type ones (if you know what I mean). Nachiketa wonderfully sings the refrain in Eklaa Chalo Re in Bose and apparently had release a contemporary version of the song himself a few years ago.
Anyway, I found the song quite nice. A translation of the lyrics can be found here along with a link to where the song can be found.
By happy coincidence, I'm listening to the songs from Anand whose music director Salil Chowdhury was also a major figure in Bengali & Hindi music.
