“Nothing is more holy than the sins of God.” – Streetfood Music
Mahalaya marks the beginning of the auspicious Durga Puja which is a larger than life festival Bengalis celebrate. Mahisasuramardini, on the other hand, is an All India Radio program that has been airing every year on Mahalaya since 1931. Bengalis around Kolkata wake up at dawn, 4 AM to be precise, and begin their day by tuning into the radio to hear Mahisasuramardini.
Such a beautiful day marks utmost significance for the release of Kolkata Hip-Hop scene’s best album till date. That’s right, DesiHipHop.com is exclusively distributing “Uposonghar Noy (Infirmus)” by Streetfood Music set to release on September 19th, 2017.

“Uposonghar Noy (Infirmus)” is an album comprising of 8 tracks, each one better than the previous.

Uposonghar Noy (Infirmus) Tracklist
“Uposonghar Noy” means ‘inconclusive’ while “Infirmus” is Latin for the same. When asked about the reason behind choosing this as album name, Cizzy mentioned, “Uposonghar means ‘Moral of the story’ and Noy means either ‘9 (nine)’ or ‘Not’. We have 8 tracks in the album, the 9th song was supposed to be the moral of the story, which is absent, hence ‘Uposonghar Noy’.” There’s a deeper meaning to just the album name, imagine what content it holds!
The vibe of “Uposonghar Noy (Infirmus)” is rich and vibrant, filling up the listener with awe and admiration. Streetfood Music has been working on this joint since January of 2017. Finally their hard work will bear fruits on Mahalaya. Stay tuned with DesiHipHop.com for exclusive updates on the track.
