Papon’s Debut Hindi Album
There is no doubting an artiste’s quality if he’s one of the few thats sells albums outside of the film genre in today’s age. But that hasn’t stopped Times Music’s latest signing Angaraag Mahanta, popularly known as Papon from creating a new benchmark. After being at the forefront of popularising Assamese folk music for over a decade now,Papon has released his debut Hindi album on Times Music. Titled – The Story So Far, the album is a melange of an earthy folk sound and contemporary arrangement.
Through the 9 Hindi & 2 Assamese tracks, you will hear the sound of the hills resonate in Papon’s voice; truly a musical experience that few people outside of his home state would have experienced. It’s the kind of album that sounds so good, every song instantly begins to grow on you. Papon has been fast gaining popularity through his performances on TV shows and at premier live music venues in India & abroad. Perhaps that’s the reason for the first batch of this album being sold out in pre-order itself. So if music is your way of unwinding on the weekend, “The Story So Far” is a must try for you. CDs are available at all leading music & retail stores and Ringback Tones are live, pan India across all mobile operators.
