“I enjoy singing for films these days” …Azmary Nirjhor
Popular pop singer Azmary Nirjhor has been in the spotlight ever since her talent was spotted in “Notun Kuri” and many other competitions. Her love for singing accounts for her success, she says to The Daily Star.
When did you start singing?
Nirjhor: The first person to spark my passion for singing was my dadi ( grandmother). Though I had signed up for other extra curricular activities, I preferred music any day. I was in Nazrul Academy for 10 years. I trained in classical music for three years. Around 2000, I came to Dhaka, and was registered in BTV and Bangladesh Betar for my songs. That was an great impetus and from then on I kept on singing.
How many of your albums have been released?
Nirjhor: In 2003, a mixed album was released. My solo album was released in 2005. I sang with Habib in his album “Moina Go.” My second album was released in 2012. Not just albums, I sang for some ad jingles. I also performed abroad to represent my country.
Do you prefer performing on or off-stage?
Nirjhor: I love both. Initially I was nervous about performing in front of so many people. But now I feel the appreciation, admiration and warmth of my audience. I largely enjoy singing for films these days. The songs and the settings for the song are so realistic. That is what I love most; it's dreamy and mesmerising.
