Birth Of Calcutta Blues
It is a journey of a guy who had lost his mother at the age of 12th and father became permanently blind. The maiden way of loneliness provoked him to choose music. With the time he had grown interest on Bangla Band music which leads him to create Calcutta Blues.
Iman Sen the soul of Calcutta Blues actually an example of persistence. His journey started from Dinabandhu Andrews College in the year 2008 with the song “ Smriti “. After that “Smriti” became college anthem song for all the teenagers. Calcutta Blues became one of the obvious choices for most of the college fest. Not only that Iman Sen became the Runners up in Mtv Rock On Desi Beat in the year 2010 & Calcutta Blues launched their album “ Rajkanya “ in the year 2012. This is not the story that I want to narrate over here. There is a twist in the tale.
