Ghater Kotha

The debut solo album of Arko released in 2013

Ghater Kotha is a humble effort to explore a few folk songs of Bengal through a contemporary as well as traditional mix of instruments as well as folk forms from around the world. It also brings out the influences of different cultures on the present day soundscape of our daily lives in Calcutta and attempts to depict the surreal lunacy of the great river Ganges flowing through it, telling stories of the city’s people.
