Sourav launches Dona's first vocal rendition

Kolkata , Dec 28 (UNI) Former Team India captain Sourav Ganguly today unveiled 'Rhythm Express-Music For Dance', a musical venture featuring Dona Ganguly, at his residence.

Dona, who is widely known as Odissi exponent, first time recorded her voice for any audio project.

The album will be sent for 61st Grammy Awards said the owner of the music label from where the album got released.

In the context, Dona Ganguly expressed her feelings exclusively to UNI saying, "I got to know the news from you and it's a great news that a hard work is going to approach the ultimate level. It doesn’t matter finally if it wins or not but its existence in the competition is next to the best in my opinion."

Sourav Ganguly after launching the album wished best of luck to the team 'Rhythm Express'.

Global Indian Music Academy(GIMA) awardee composer and percussionist Pandit Prodyut Mukherjee made this album happen with his presentation and execution.

The album is a collaboration with Dona Ganguly, Pandit Vishwamohan Bhatt and Pandit Prodyut Mukherjee. It contains four tracks for dance and Dona vocally rendered the Odissi bolbani. Pandit Bhatt created the melody through 'Mohon-Veena' which has been named after himself.

Speaking about his latest collaboration with Dona Ganguly, an Odissi exponent Mukherjee said, "I wanted to present Indian Classical music in a different way which is fusion. Dona ji is by far the best Odissi dancer I have known. No one matches up to her level of perfection when it comes to dance. The idea of Rhythm Express is to promote Indian classical music and reach out to a wider audience,"

The legendary Pdt Bhatt hopes that this album shall be as sensational as the GIMA AWARD winning Rhythm Express Moods.

The man behind Rhythm Express Pdt Prodyut Mukherjee was ecstatic for having collaborated with the two fabulous performing artists Dona Ganguly & Vishwamohan Bhatt and hopes that the album shall create a history across the globe.

"This is my first time lending vocal for some project. I worked with Pandit Mukherjee earlier and when he approached me for the project, I responded positively because I think inclusion of Odissi bolbani will be helpful for me to choreograph the project", said the legendary danseuse.

Legendary elocutionist and compere Satinath Mukhopadhyay connected the thread of artistry throughout.

The album encompasses on a vast spectrum of musical genres ranging from traditional Hindustani classical to South Indian classical notes and extending beyond the boundaries of India, Rhythm Express offers a global musical influences adapting African, Latin American, Jazz & Blues and traditional Western classical notes. Prodyut, during his travels across the globe has been influenced by the beauty and rhythm styles of many places and has incorporated the same in his music through Rhythm Express.
