Assamese singer Papon aka Angaraag Mahanta

Angarag Mahanta aka Papon ,  the Indian singer from Assam now needs no introduction. A few days back his new album is published by Times Music. I have first listened to Papon's solo album Jonaki Rati. It was soothing, touching and very very impressive.  My next tryst with Paopn's music was his Gomseng, an amazing Assamese Bihu album with all the authentic Assamese flavour which Assamese music lovers have been searching for a long time. So searched for Papon's song and music albums. Here are Papon aka Angarag's music albums.

Angarag Mahanta is the son of yesteryears famous musical couple Khagen and Archana Mahanta who have enthralled a generation of music lovers with their melodious songs.
