Symphony of Nature

The daughters of Nature, created out of Nature's own elements, are glorious in their beauty and innocence. They are the seekers of knowledge and truth, and harmony They play with the delicate flowers and other gentle creatures of the wild. Together they sing in rapturous praise of the author of this beautiful earth. As they wander through the forest during their journey, by the quiet streams and magnificent meadows -- the blue mountains and tall trees shield them from all evil. Gentle forces of nature wrap them in a capsule of love, kindness, honesty and piety.

From the dark corners of the forest, a red finger for temptation beckons them into a narrow alley!  All of a sudden the sky is overcast with evil clouds. Fiery arms of anger leap at them and jealousy claws at their hearts. They plunge into an abyss of deceit.  Vengeance flashes it's teeth like lightning and violence engulfs them in throes of destruction.

They raise their arms in despair and call Mother Nature for help.

A gentle breeze of goodness ushers in tranquility, joy, piety, humility and peace again. Forgiveness lights up the sky like a canopy of stars.  Thus, Good triumphs over Evil, and harmony is established on Earth. The joy of Creation is celebrated through the Symphony of Nature.

Some reviews : click here

"How much of the tradition of Bengali music can you pack into a single album. For Alak Roychoudhury this was quite a challenge and he lives up it commendably in the CD Collection (KI JADU BANGLA GANE)." - The Statesman

"Fascinating was the performance of Alak Roychoudhury who tried to recall the lyrical & notational richness of Bengali light songs composed and popularized in the sixties. His rendering of a Mukundadas number was specially remarkable".
