"Gaan Tea" is not just a song; it's a musical narrative. It gracefully unfolds, little by little, each day, like the gentle flight of a butterfly. Enthusiasts from diverse backgrounds, including composers, lyricists, instrumentalists, singers, performers, sound engineers, music producers, and impresarios, have contributed significantly to the music world. Each creation is not merely a song but a culmination of unique and extensive experiences, forming the intricate chapters of a profound musical journey. Unfortunately, these musical stories have not been entirely preserved, for the newer generation that may not fully appreciate the rich legacy and undiscovered depths of this musical journey.

Music, far beyond entertainment, is a narrative—a journey that goes beyond creating joy to weaving a tapestry of emotions and connecting generations. "Gaan Tea" symbolizes this continuous journey, marking a significant milestone in the world of music. The series was christened by renowned litterateur and journalist Sri Shankarlal Bhattacharya in the vibrant ambiance of a cafĂ© in Kolkata.

The grand launch of Gaan Tea took place on January 4, at "Charubasona," the private auditorium at the Jogen Chowdhury Center for Arts in Kolkata. The event was attended by featured artists, media persons, and eminent personalities. Music director Kalyan Sen Barat, singer, music director, and educator Ramanuj Dasgupta, popular musician Ranjan Prasad, Indrani Bhattacharya, harmonica player Kajal Chakraborty, and Shankarlal Bhattacharya were among the notable attendees.

The event also featured Abhishek Ganguli, an independent filmmaker and founder of Cinema for a Cause, Ritwik Mitra, a renowned guitarist and music director representing the band "Kolkata Kalling," and the composer of the Gaan Tea Title Track, beautifully sung by Debojit Bhattacharya and Srijoni Bannerjee.

A crucial segment of the evening was the felicitation of 90-year-old senior musician and educator Manoj Kumar Mondal from Delhi, recognized for his relentless efforts in spreading the goodness of music and inspiring the newer generation. The event, jointly organized by Kolkata Kalling and Cinema for a Cause, was anchored by Nilanjana Ghosh.
