Tell us about your first time on stage.
My mother urged me to perform in a function in her music school. Needless to say, I was very nervous but somehow I pulled it off! I was very little at that time.
What are your most recent projects?
This year, my album named Koto Modhumire came out and it was produced by Bengal Foundation. It was a Rabindra Sangeet album and was received very well by critics. Previously, 3 of my albums had come out from Bhavna Records. At the moment, I am busy with stage shows and my own music school. I'm also thinking about making another solo album!
Who are your inspirations?
This will sound a bit cliché, but whoever loves me is my inspiration! I am grateful to everyone who has loved and supported my work throughout the years and they are the reason that I continue to do what I do.
What do you like to do besides music?
I love cooking, travelling and being involved in 'addas' with the people I love.
Describe yourself in one word.
Tell us about your future plans in music.
To be honest, all I want to do is sing and nothing else. Everything I have done is related to music, and I have taught music in the Bangladesh Film and Television Academy (BFTA). At the moment, I am busy with my own music school. I am also learning how to play the piano. I have done playback for two songs, and will do more in the future if I get the opportunity. For me, music is life and life is music!
