Rupam Islam Ekok
Rupam Islam: the singer-songwriter
That he is the most electric performer in our part of the world is general knowledge by now. What the general audience seldom gets to see is the songwriter-self of the man, the intimate side of the rockstar. Here Rupam just picks up his guitar and sings - leaving a format, or a song list, or all other things that make a performance a rule-bound affair far behind.
Mesmerized to the core, the audience realizes this man is equally as scintillating, if not more, when he drifts along his songs all alone.
#RupamIslamEkok is nothing short of a journey, an escape to solitude crafted by haunting lyrics and soulful tunes - an incredibly complete performance, yet so very distinctly different from the way the audience is used to see him at Fossils concerts. The songs are mostly uncommon (90% of them are unreleased), yet favoured by the audience & requested.
No one accompanies Rupam here, he is all alone with a guitar & keyboard.
The audience is always left screaming for more— that is the magic of #RupamIslamEkok & the reason behind the fact that these solo shows of Rupam never happened without being a ‘sold out’ affair.
