Bipul’s brand new EP, ‘Samaya’ (which means time, period or juncture) is, in a nutshell, a collection of trips his mind sauntered off on when the world went into lockdown mode in that period of quiet, loneliness, despair and disillusionment. It is a fully stripped down, acoustic and organic set of five songs written and composed while he, just like the rest of us, was physically cut off from the rest of the world. All songs have been performed on a single acoustic guitar, sometimes accompanied by another instrument, if at all. While circumstances might have dictated the need to go a little ‘naked’ in production, the absence of veneer and gloss only serve to help each song grab your complete and undivided attention. So that when Bipul sings about the spaces where he wandered off to, it becomes the story of your journeys as well.

All songs written, composed and arranged by Bipul Chettri

Recorded, mixed and mastered at Plug ‘N’ Play Studios by Anindo Bose

Cover artwork & design by Manohar Rai

Liner notes by Nima D.T. Namchu

Producer – Bipul Chettri
