For listeners who enjoy Bengali, along with the freedom offer there’s an added surprise!
Bengal’s beloved singer-songwriter and published author – Anupam Roy has just completed an exciting new project for Storytel. Bringing together various forms of media, the Dey’s Publishing release – Nijer Shobde Kaaj Koro is a book of poetry written by Anupam Roy himself. The artist has always expressed himself through his writings in his own words, as the title suggests, and most importantly – in Bangla. The book was released by Dey’s Publishing in early 2020. The book brings together some beautiful blank verse and lyric poetry and is now going to be released in a whole new format. Through amazing creative collaboration between Anupam Roy’s fantastic team and Storytel’s audiobook expertise, the singer has lent his narration to the poems from the book in this unique project. Not only has he read the poems, but he has also brought in his melodic guitar to create a beautiful and submissive escape for the listeners. The book is releasing in August as Storytel gears up for their Freedom Offer.
Yogesh Dashrath, Country manager Storytel India “This month we are all celebrating freedom and we at Storytel wanted to extend that to our subscriptions as well. True to our vision, we want stories to be shared and enjoyed by anyone, anywhere and anytime. With the limited period Select subscription at such a competitive pricing, customers will be able to enjoy stories in their own language.”
