Coronavirus: Top musicians join Bongo’s ‘@ Home With’ series

The whole world is grappling with the deadly coronavirus pandemic and its impact on daily life. The Bangladesh government has urged people of the country to follow a good many health guidelines to prevent the spread of the virus. 

In a bid to entertain the general viewers of the country during the days of their home quarantine, Bongo, country’s largest video-streaming service, has suspended all subscription requirements for its sites such as Live TV channels, blockbuster movies, natoks, and original web series. Bongo has thousands of hours of video content and everyday new video contents are being uploaded.

Bongo has introduced a new music series titled ‘@ Home with’ with top musicians such as Shafin Ahmed of Miles, Jon Kabir of the band Indalo, and Nafis Al Amin of Arbovirus. The ‘@ Home with’ series also features Shayan Chowdhury Arnab, Minar Rahman, Bappa Majumdar, Pritom Hasan, Protic Hasan, Adit Rahman, Mila, Xefer Rahman, Rumel Ali, Babna Karim, Mahtim Shakib and other talented artistes. Bongo hopes that this music series produced in the style of unplugged sessions will help the audience pass time at home while relaxing or working from home.

“Staying at home is extremely important to combat the current pandemic, but it can be mentally challenging. We are trying to use music to uplift people’s moods through positivity with our ‘@ Home with’ music series,” said Chief Operating Officer Fayaz Taher

Anyone can download the BongoBD app on their phones from the Google Play store or from the Apple App Store, or they could simply visit and enjoy this special arrangement from Bongo with top musicians. ‘@ Home with’ is absolutely free.

Bongo is also available globally for Bangladesh’s expatriate community who can also watch Bongo content for free. We hope that access to this content will help them feel a bit closer to home. Bongo is a homegrown Bangladeshi startup that began in 2013 from a rooftop and is now competing with companies such as Youtube, Facebook, and Netflix.
