Bannya’s music video marking Tagore’s birth anniversary

Tagore Singer Rezwana Chowdhury Bannya and elocutionist Samiul Islam Poluck.

To commemorate Rabindranath Tagore’s 160th Birth Anniversary, Dhroopad, a Bengali American cultural organisation in the greater Washington DC, is releasing a heartening music video featuring Legendary Tagore Singer Rezwana Chowdhury Bannya and elocutionist Samiul Islam Poluck. The presentation will be a compilation of Tagore’s famous song ‘Keno Chokher Jole Bhijiye Dilem Na’ with the poem Oshombhob from his Sanai Kabya. 

Rezwana Chowdhury Bannya’s extremely mellifluous voice and matchless melodies put soul into the song while Poluck breathes to the poem. The creative presentation has been conceptualised and planned by Hiron Chowdhury. The audio has been arranged by Amzad Hussain and Video has been directed by Yamin Elan.

About the music video, Bannya said, “The concept of God, the Almighty, as well as Tagore’s quintessential celebration of spirituality is expressed with new, enriched dimensions, meanings, and nuances in all the lyrics of his songs in the ‘Puja’ Parjaay of Geetabitan. Life is much greater than just the sum of all our pains and pathos and knowing this gives us courage and fills us with the audacity to look beyond and embrace the unimaginable abundance! I believe our presentation will definitely please the ears of our listeners.”

The music video will be released on Dhroopad’s official Youtube Channel and Facebook page today.
