Earlier this year, SVF Music had launched Banglar Gaan Indies, aimed at promoting a new lineup of indie artists and songs that suit the GenZ audience. SVF Music plans to release four to five independent songs every month in collaboration with new musicians under the initiative, which includes notable compositions like Tumi Jaao featuring Ishan Mitra and Shudhui Aaj Ekhon featuring Mainak Bhattacharya. Pralay Sarkar's Sawariya and Debayan Banerjee’s Raat Holey have also found places in the lineup.
