With sprawling tea gardens and endless extends of paddy fields, Assam has a serenity like no other place. Born in the same land of red rivers and blue hills, Angarag Mahanta inherited his passion and love for music from his family. We all know him by the name ‘Papon’ today.
One of the most diverse singers today, Papon can make you fall in love with any genre of song. Be it ambient electronica, acoustic folk, classical songs of the Eastern India or Ghazals of reminiscence and heartbreak, Papon never ceases to touch hearts with his music.
This 24th of June, Papon is going to perform live at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Delhi and we can’t wait for it. His songs are magical and will transport you to a state of bliss. Here are some of his songs you must check out and expect at the event:
