Man Patang, Coke Studio, Season 2, Episode 506:38

Published on July 7, 2012

The idea was to do a world music song, rooted in Assamese culture and music. This song is an ode to man’s fearless spirit, perfectly captured through the poetic metaphor of a spunky kite in the open sky. It also showcases the free spirit, which refuses to settle and knows not any boundaries. The song also ultimately refers to the soul being freed. The song is an interplay between Mahalaxmi Iyer and Dominique Cerejo with Assamese folk singers Banjyotsna Borgohain & Sharodi Borah providing perfect context to the setting.
