In Conversation with Susmit Sen Chronicles
I am extremely happy to announce the release of the first song of Susmit Sen Chronicles - Bongingon, from the forthcoming album Ocean To Ocean. Every input that went into the making of this number right from the first riff, to the lyrics, to collaborating with a maestro happened in an almost magically spontaneous manner. If someone were to ask me how and when was the song born, I’d wonder when and how. The first seed of the song was sowed around ten years back. It was a riff that floated into my head and started developing into a thought as I played it on and on. When I started Susmit Sen Chronicles a year back, the challenge for me was to rediscover the sound I believed in without actually repeating myself. There’s a thin line between maintaining your original sound and copying yourself!
