(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Chandrabindoo, a Bengali band, enthralled a crowd of over 600 people at the Al Bustan Palace, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel on Thursday evening. Organised by the alumni of Bengal Engineering College in Oman, this was the first visit of the popular band from the east Indian city of Kolkata.

The three-hour programme showcased musical diversities of the seven-member team that ranged from folk, jazz, country to rock and roll. Along with the combination of bass-acoustic-electric guitar, keyboards and drums, the band won the applause of the audience for the pun in their lyrics and experiments with kirtan (folk) music. Speaking about the band's performance, Upal, the lead singer, said, ''It is wonderful to play before a packed house in this highly reputed hotel in the city. Muscat is a very well-organised city.''

Some of the songs that the band played were Amake Boka Bolo Na, Eita Tomar Gaan, Juju and the popular ones Sweetheart I am Sitting Alone and Bola Baron from the Bengali film Aparajita Tumi. Saumitra Chattterjee, an alumni of Bengal Engineering College, said, ''This is the first visit by the band and we are happy to see the response it has received from people. We have been organising such events for the last six years and every time we bring leading stars or artistes from West Bengal.

We organise these events purely on a noncommercial basis for Bengalis living in Muscat to be in touch with their culture and tradition. This also helps our children to know their roots better.''<
