Ghaashphoring Choir's Arnob medley makes ripples

Dia Mirza endorses Bangladeshi artistes' cover

Ghaashphoring Choir, founded earlier this year by singer-songwriter Armeen Musa, has been performing at niche musical events in Dhaka regularly, and has made a reputation of doing popular Bangla songs in their own choir-style musical arrangements. The first video of the group -- a live video of a medley of songs by Arnob -- was released a few days ago, and has been received very well. In a pleasant surprise, Bollywood actress Dia Mirza shared the song on Twitter, with the caption “This unique Arnob Medley Live by the #GhaashphoringChoir will fill your heart with joy”.

Arnob himself also took to his Facebook page to put his stamp of approval on the medley, saying “Thank you & best wishes.. Giving me a place to keep going! Love you all n salute Armeen n Ghaashphoring er dol.”

The soft, soulful medley features segments of four songs: “Muhurto” (from “Hok Kolorob”), “Chithi Pathao” (“Roud Bolechhey Hobe”), “Bebak Bibagi” and “Hariye Giyechhi” (“Chaina Bhabish”). Armeen is seen playing keys (the only instrument used in the song) with fourteen members of the choir flanking her in colour-coordinated white-and-green outfits, hummimg and harmonising to the songs.

The video was shot at Jatra Biroti and produced by Electric Dreams.
