Agamani Songs

Agamani is a kind of religious song based on the stories of Lord Shiva and Parvati that is associated with Durga puja during the month of October. The original Agamani songs were first composed by Ramprasad Sen and later by Kamalakanta Bhattacharya.

The subject of the song is the agaman (coming) of Goddess Durga (Parvati) from the Himalyan home of her husband, Lord Shiva, to her parents' home. The songs composed on her return on the fourth day are known as Vijaya songs.
