Angaraag Mahanta aka Papon, a multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer, has been signed on by audio company Sennheiser to endorse their products. Papon joins the company's list of endorsers such as Farhan Akthar, Shankar, Ehsaan, Loy and Raghu Dixit.


Talking about the association with Sennheiser, Papon said in a statement, "One needs a great partner to make great music, and I have chosen to partner with Sennheiser in pursuit of perfect sound."

"My band, the East India Company, and I have used a number of microphones over the years, but we believe nothing matches up to a Sennheiser. I am honoured to be part of the Sennheiser family, as it has also been the choice of music legends from across the globe," he added.

All future live performances of Papon will be powered by Sennheiser.

Credited with reviving interest in folk music from the North East, Papon has seven successful Assamese albums to his name, as well as a band titled Papon and the East India Company that melds folk tunes from the region with electronic music.
