Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

Odissi danseuse and cricket icon Sourav Ganguly's wife Dona Ganguly is collaborating with well-known tabla artiste Pt Prodyot Mukherjee for a fusion album.

The music of the album has been composed by 'Padma Bhushan' awardee Pt Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, who had shared the prestigious GIMA 2016 (Global Indian Music Academy) Award.

Mukherjee said, "the album, which has just been completed, is our attempt to make Indian music popular among the masses - both in and the West through fusion.

"Dona and me have drawn a synergy between musical notes and rhythms of dance and Dona has said that this is a new form of experiment for her. We are very happy with the final outcome."

He said Sourav Ganguly has extended his best wishes for the project.
