Shusmita Anis has made a stir in the Bengali music scene and garnered fans in both Bangladesh and around the world with her new album 'Sound of Seasons'. It was recently brought out in a local hotel in the city as a tribute to Feroza Begum, according to a press release. The album was launched by New Music Paradigm Company in Dhaka and Kolkata. With the release of the album, Shusmita Anis has started her musical journey in promoting and popularizing Nazrul Sangeet, while following the legacy of the legendary Nazrul artiste Feroza Begum. She has presented an array of ten Nazrul songs in this album. This is her fifth studio album so far.
Music director Ibrar Tipu did the music composition for the album. Overall supervision of the making of the album was done by renowned tabla player Syed Meher Hossain.
The album was released alongside two music videos - Shojol Ghono Borosha and Laal Tuk Tuke Bou. The first song is Kazi Nazrul Islam's epic homage to the famous monsoon of Bangladesh. They have been produced by Red DOT, directed by renowned Ad filmmaker and managing director of Red Dot Gazi Ahmed Shubhro and shot by Red DOT's director of photography Ishtiaque Ahmed Pablo.
Ibrar Tipu, said of his work on the album, "I was first approached by Meher bhai to work on this album. This project has not only taught me the diversity of Nazrul's music it also proves to me why he is who he is. Other than that, of course I loved working with Shusmita Anis apa and her amazingly simple voice. Her cooperative personality made the work very rewarding and enjoyable."
Gazi Shubhro states, "Red DOT creates a visual representation of the song's music and the lyrics according to its virtues."
Born in a musical family, Shusmita Anis is the niece and devoted disciple of the legendary Nazrul Sangeet singer Feroza Begum. She has specialized in Nazrul and modern Bengali songs, especially those tuned by her uncle, the renowned composer Kamal Das Gupta.
