Review from Journeyscapes Radio
Ban Brothers are an Indian fusion musical duo consisting of real-life brothers Gautam Banerjee and Swagata “Ban” Banerjee. Recorded, mixed and engineered in various locations in India, their fourth album, titled All About Love, beautifully unfolds like a Bollywood movie soundtrack in which Eastern and Western, and retro and modern musical elements colorfully collide. Comprised of nine compositions spanning approximately forty-three minutes, the brothers are joined by an outstanding team of guest artists, including Vanil Veigas who lends keyboard programming to a couple of tracks and likewise provides additional arrangements alongside the notable Ricky Kej. Showcasing male and female vocals that alternately take the lead on each track, Hindi lyrics are delivered by guest singers Prajoth D’Sa, Supriya Joshi and Debasish Shome. Other musicians variably play instruments such as acoustic, bass and rhythmic guitar, bamboo flute, dholak, drums, keyboards, mandolin, percussion, saxophone, saz, table, violins and whistle.

“Bitee Huyee” is an excellent opening piece and likewise one of my favorites on the album, featuring the caressing vocals of Prajoth amongst a lively yet smooth arrangement of keyboards and percussion. Conveying an uplifting mood wrapped in a nocturnal mystique, one might possibly imagine having entered a majestic Indian palace filled with sweet aromas and sumptuous décor. The female vocals of Supriya take the lead on the next piece, “Panchhee Banke”, which effectively recalls an Indian music video depicting an entourage of women dancing in a scenic outdoor setting. In a somewhat unique twist, rhythmic guitar adds a slick western touch to the composition’s traditional blend of mandolin, bamboo flutes, tablas, drums and violins. One of the most intriguing pieces on the album is “Aaj Tum Mere”, which initially opens with birdsong followed by Prajoth once again on vocals. Characterized by a catchy Hindi-pop chorus accompanied by a saloon-style melody and rhythm, this cleverly assembled piece seemingly reminds me of an old Western movie that’s been reimagined in the East! Prajoth also sings “Dil Se Dil”, another nostalgic number that effectively transports the listener several decades back in time, as additional saxophone and acoustic guitar lightly season the composition with jazz and Mediterranean flavors. Wrapping up the album is the infectiously light-hearted, “Hum Se Zamaanaa”, once again showcasing Prajoth on vocals. Notably heavier on the electronic elements, the composition effectively conveys the notion of a Bollywood disco full of beaming techno lights.

Straight from the heart of India, All About Love perfectly illustrates authentic world fusion, seemingly bringing the essence of its homeland into the space of the listener. While perhaps not particularly distinguishable from most other Bollywood music I’ve heard, the compositions themselves are thoroughly enjoyable and always keep the listener moving. Likewise, I really appreciated the warmly innocent, unassuming and down-to-earth vibe of this album, and would especially recommend it to other Bollywood fans!

Review from One World Music Radio
To kick off todays writing spree, I come across an album of global appeal, by the Ban Brothers, called All About Love. The title is apt, as it truly reflects just what the entire album is about, love in all its aspects.
This world, global fusion of Bollywood, and east meets west, is both colourful and inspiring, and contains a really beautiful production to its overall manifestation. The opening piece is called Bitee Huyee and is sung with such a smooth, soft gentle voice.
The influence of master music producer Ricky Kej is very evident on the album, and it’s great to hear and feel. On the next piece called Panchhee Banke we have some wonderful movement with the added percussion and strings in the mix, and the tempo is raised just that much, that this composition becomes fun and addictive to listen to, the female vocals of Supriya Joshi is simply stunning here.
These real life brothers in Gautam Banerjee and Swagata "Ban" Banerjee have really created something very special here, and on Tumi Bhorer Paakhi, a male song, we have a composition that has a delightful sense of mystery crafted into its weave and the vocals of Debasish Shome are a great narrator within it, this his sole appearance on the album.
The longest piece on, All About Love is called Jeevan Kee Nadiyaa and at well over six minutes, gives us the opportunity to explore the vast array of musical instrumentation used and once more, the imploring vocals of singer Supriya Joshi are incredible in bringing a track that has a real depth and weight to its construction.
Warm sounds of summer, birds and natural sounds, give us a real outdoors feel to the next song called Aaj Tum Tere. There is a smooth flowing tempo here; some delicate piano and a creative use of strings that is very appealing to listen to. The delivery of some very harmonic vocals is provided by the stylish Prajoth D'sa, in what is truly a lively, but controlled arrangement.
One of my personal favourites from the album was the symphonic offering called Chupi Chupi. The ever attractive singing of Supriya Joshi can be found at its best on this track, and we must also congratulate Debasish (Babu) Shome for his masterful whistling on this fantastic song, listen also to a very creative bass here on this piece.
As a guitarist, I really appreciated the opening of Dil Se Dil, a lively song this one with some wonderful acoustic work contained within, it also had a little 1960’s movie style in its construction, but that’s my western point of view, and also may have something to do with the very addictive and memorable orchestration in the song itself.
However full marks must go to the penultimate track off the album and a thoroughly outstanding song too, called Tumi Bhorer Paakhi. This for me had everything, a careful build, a sensual tempo and of course, the perfect response to the male version earlier, on track three.
Our last musical gift from the Ban Brothers is called Hum Se Zamaanaa and starts with an almost western dance or trance styled ethic, also incorporating a mix of electronica from the 80’s into its overall build, a lively and upbeat way to leave the release.
All about Love is a clever and well produced album, about the only subject in the world that really means anything, love. They have brilliantly produced a release which I feel may well catch the hearts and minds of western ears.
I must also state that it’s rare these days to find good quality artwork on albums, and it is so very refreshing to see an original piece created by artist Aniruddha Mukherjee for this release, it certainly raises the profile of the project splendidly. As they enjoy a roam along the corridors of music from Eastern culture, All About Love is a fine example of good quality world music, with its modern style and its crafted compositions, this could very well be the album that opens up a whole new realm of music to your ever eager ears, go on and give it a spin.
