Also known as Magh Bihu, the festival marks the end of the harvesting season and ushers in the Assamese New Year.

The week-long festival starting with Uruka, is celebrated by families sitting around a bonfire and making feasts.

However, this year, due to his busy schedule and concerts, Papon celebrated the festival in a different way by giving it a personal touch.

He celebrated pre-Uruka with his two families -- his band and his family.

As Papon had a music concert in Mumbai, he was not able to make the feast, but he still took out time to celebrate the festival.

To maintain the festival's significance, he celebrated pre-Uruka on his balcony with his band and family.

Talking about his childhood memory of the festival, he added" "This is an important festival. I have a lot of childhood memories connected to this festival, so I wanted to keep up with the tradition and celebrate it. Who better to celebrate this than my two families? I spent so much time with my band that it only made sense to include them in this celebration."

The singer had a music concert in Mumbai on Friday evening and will have his next in Guwahati on January 2.
