Chirkutt’s latest: Udhao
From everyday uptown melancholy to ecstatic suburban moments, one band has it all covered in their numbers through their minimalist yet powerful lyrics, eclectic compositions and heartening tunes. We are talking about none other than our very own epic fusion troupe Chirkutt, one of the few names in the Bangladeshi music scene to gloriously explode beyond the nation’s borders and reach distant shores across the world’s oceans. Chirkutt is not a new band by any means, having been around since 2002. The ravishing music troupe is all set to come out with their third album. Titled Udhao, the album will be shortly available on the Yonder music app with a CD to be released after Eid-ul-Fitr. Showtime reached out to the band to talk about their latest venture and the stories surrounding the album, among the other things. Tell us about your new album. Udhao is being released after a long hiatus, since our last album has been released back in 2013. We believe the album is ready to be cherished by the aficionados. We’ve tried our best to keep it simple and be sincere regarding the production of the album. 19059241_101 How long have you been working on the album? We’ve been working on it since year, although the pace was not consistent all throughout. The last one month has been significantly arduous for us, since the team worked really hard to be able to release the product we really want to. Why Udhao? There’s an interesting story behind the title. Chirkutt always goes through a rigorous process before naming an album, hence we barely put an abstract title which may not be equally accessible to all of our audience. There was a number of initial titles but it was changed only two days ago, when we were eating Sehri when we realised that we are improving everyday in terms of science and technology but the love between us is disappearing everyday at the same pace. Our forests are disappearing, hampering the lives of animals, greenery and the comforts of life. That’s when we decided to name the album Udhao. Any interesting stories behind the making of Udhao? There’s a track named “TV” in the new album, which has quite an interesting background. When we think of TV, we think of a technology that provides with news updates about the world around us but not the news or the thoughts of our beloved ones. The song represents such a lover who gave up watching TV because the TV doesn’t show him the news of his beloved one. Unlike the name, TV is surprisingly a romantic track. How do you assess the contribution of Chirkutt in upholding the spirit of Bangla music? From the very first day we started playing together, Chirkutt as a team promised the local listeners a sound. In a time when original tracks are easily lost in a sea of covers and other trendy ventures, Chirkutt always produced new tracks for our fans, whether it was for a drama, film and everything in between, we were always there for our audience with new numbers. On another note, when we go abroad to perform in front of an expat audience, we get a crowd of generations who are barely introduced with the beauty of Bengali music. But many of the parents later informed us that their sons or daughters are listening to our tracks on YouTube and other platforms, which is really a matter of great pleasure for us. Rising above our individual expectations and desires, Chirkutt takes great pride in upholding our music industry and this is what we’ve always wanted.
