‘Mausam’ (Season) is an original single composed and sung by Switzerland based Hindustani classical singer/ composer Bijayashree Samal and arranged by Jazz pianist Bruno Steffen, also based in Switzerland. The song has English vocals by Jazz singer/composer Isabel Richiusa.

It is a romantic ballad describing the sentiments of lovers like the change of nature with seasons and it blends together the soulful Indian melody with the very flamboyant Jazz, an amalgamation of east with west.

The song has been performed by ‘NANDIGHOSHA’, an Indian Spiced Jazz/ World Music Group, founded by Bijayashree, Bruno and Ekkehard in 2017 and accompanied by musicians like Ekkehard Sassenhausen, Beat Gisler, Bernhard Göttert, Vivek Bhurtun, and guest artist Isabel Richiusa for English vocals.

NANDIGHOSHA is a newly formed Indian Spiced Jazz and World Music Group by Hindustani classical vocalist, song writer and composer Bijayashree Samal; Bruno Steffen, a well- known Jazz pianist, composer, arranger and music teacher of Conservatory of Zurich (MKZ) and at the ZHdK; and Ekkehard Sassenhausen, well known classical and Jazz saxophonist, composer, teacher and principal of Musikschule Uster Greifensee, Switzerland. The name ‘NANDIGHOSHA’ means ‘Joy of Music’ rightly signifying the group’s interest and effort to produce and create music for the global audience meaning audience beyond borders by combining different world music genres. The name has also connection with Bijayashree’s native place Odisha, one of the eastern states of India, where people worship Lord Jagannath of Puri and his chariot name is Nandighosha. Bijayashree believes the annual festival of Lord Jagannath’s Ratha Jatra / Chariot Festival in Puri in which the deities come out of their temple so that everybody across the world beyond cast, creed and religion can see them is a festival signifying universal brotherhood, unity & integrity through embracing humanity and love beyond everything else.

Currently, Nandighosha is working on Indian compositions (involving originals as well as traditional) in connection with western harmonic music to infuse colors of jazz music on Indian melodies and vice-versa wherein all original compositions are by Bijayashree Samal and Bruno Steffen.

We are glad to inform you that the first original  single ‘RASIKA BALAMA’ is all ready and releasing soon. Please check this place and also our You Tube Channel to listen the new song.


‘NANDIGHOSHA’ group is giving concerts in and around Switzerland and is open to collaborations with enthusiastic and creative artists in any world music genres.
