Almost half of the total number of music albums released a year comes during the Eid-ul-Fitr. Even though the music industry is in its waning phase with little turn-outs, producers find Eid-ul-Fitr to be a propitious time to release their best ones.
The good news is this year, the music release scenario for Eid is nothing different. Around 150 audio albums produced by different production houses are hitting the market. The albums vary in music genres, tastes and styles. Classic, Tagore, ghazal, rock, pop, all are in the list.
Like previous year, production house G-Series and its sister concern Agniveena have produced the maximum number of albums, no less than 70 in number.
Among the albums of these two production houses is popular singer Tahsan’s sixth solo Uddeshyo Nei which has 11 melodic numbers in the singer’s signature style. A few Tagore albums are also in the list such as Saurav Das’ Eki Labonne, Toma’s Khuje Berai, Jolly Rahman’s Tumi Khushi Thako, Shimul Zaman’s To Tagore With Love and Satyam Devnath’s Se Kotha Surey Surey.
Manzurul Islam’s ghazal album titled Ei Raat Emon Modhur can be a favourite too to the music-lovers.
Among other attractive albums by G-Series and Agniveena are Apel Mahmud’s Apel Mahmud The Legend, Prince Mahmud’s Ekushey Pa, Anita’s solo Anita 2, Basu Dev’s solo Abhisari Somoy, Lutfor Hasan’s solo Jonakira. Besides, the houses have brought forth some mixed albums too.
