Baartalaap, a musical duo (Shankuraj Konwar and Maitrayee Patar), has recently released the first single “Ki Bedonate” under the album titled “Baartalaap”. The songs of the album are lyrically based on the fine details of human emotions and framed in indigenous melodies with a touch of electronic and ambient sound. Baartalaap initially consisted of three to four songs originally written by Shankuraj. Later Maitrayee joined in with more songs to render it to a full length album. Baartalaap is the debut musical project of the duo.
“Ki Bedonate” is undoubtedly one of the best Assamese songs you will come across in recent times.
