Recently, singer Papon released his new Assamese album, ‘Notun Puhor’, seven years after ‘Sinaki Osinaki’ was released in 2010. With hummable melodies and lyrics filled with emotions, the songs also have contemporary influences of electronic and rock. The album represents the next step in his journey as a musician as he tackles new sonic textures.
Speaking about the album, which has heavy influences of synths and electric guitar, Papon says, “I’ve matured as a composer, and I feel that now I can strike a balance between old school and new styles of music. The music is very modern but the lyrics are rooted and will speak to a lot of people.”
