1993: Sumon left Feelings ..... one of the most popular rock bands in Dhaka. He decided to work on a solo album. The plan was to do something totally different.

1994: Sharing inputs of musicians and friends from more than eight most popular bands in town 'Sumon O' Aurthohin' was completed in Auvisruti Studio.

There were twenty eight solos in that song, and the name of the song was 'Aurthohin'. The history was made!
