Event description

Description

This unique three-month long festival, returning to London for the fifth year, showcases the splendour of Bangla Music and its spectacular latitude through mind blowing performances (with relevant translation wherever necessary) by the best of Britain. The event is supported by London Borough of Tower Hamlets, Rich Mix, Keats House and Poplar Union.

It features the evolution of Bangla music (evolved approximately at 730 AC) from Charjya-Pod, folk, Kirton, Toppa, Poncho-Kobi (Tagore,D.L Roy, Atul Prasad, Rajanikanto and Najrul) to Modern Bangla music. The leading singers around the UK from West-Bengal and Bangladeshi origin will exude the treasure and the glorious journey of Bangla music.

The session features a mesmerising presentation of Bangla Pala Gaan (Bengali Folk Ballad) along with a solo session of divotional folk music by the top Bengali folk singer in UK Gouri Chowdhury.


T M Ahmed Kaysher will curate the event with a brief introduction on the history and background of this sublime form of world music.
