There are certain songs that just feel like they were made for the artists who recorded them. We have come across with nine such Assamese songs by various new age artists of Assam who simply put our faith back on Assamese music. The songs are not only just good, but also very innovative in style. Some of the videos are mind blowing too. But in this particular list of songs, we ignored the video and concentrated on the music and the composition parts only. We are sure that there are other such songs which are made from the heart and in the coming days we will be able to introduce those on this platform for you to enjoy and fall in love. Do leave a comment if you are aware of songs that will simply blow anyone's mind!
