Nandan (full name Munshi Ashkaruzzaman Nandan) is a Bangladeshi-born singer/songwriter hailing from Thorold, Ontario. Nandan’s musical influences stem from various music genres, leading to him creating songs in multiple unique styles. Nandan has a ‘something for everyone’ type of approach to his music – a true jack of all trades. This approach has led to inconsistency with maintaining one specific sound (resulting in Nandan being labeled as an ‘experimental’ artist).
He separated himself from the traditional artist model by sneaking in the element of surprise to every song he releases. The unpredictable nature of Nandan’s musical activity has become a trademark of his identity. From catchy choruses to songs with unusual topics, he keeps his listeners hooked on his music. Nandan’s goal is to satisfy listeners with an eclectic mix of different genres and to prove that great music can be made in any style.
‘Digitalia’ is a song about a reality created by the influence of technology in our everyday lives. Nandan wrote this song inspired by the belief that without having a presence online, one can assume that you don’t exist. Physical presence is not enough anymore.
The song is loved for the dancey vibe it gives off, and remembered for the catchiness that makes you want to listen to it on repeat.
