2016 – Best of Bengali Film Music

Note: For releases between December 2015 and December 2016

SONGS

Fairly good year overall for Bengali music with approximately 45-50 songs that were in contention to make a Top 30. Somewhat heavy reliance on repackaged Rabindra Sangeet over creative new tunes. Teenanko by Arko Mukhearjee (not to be confused with Arko Pravo Mukherjee of Bollywood) stood out as the album of the year.
