ROQUAIYA HASINA NEELY'S sixth album launched
Noted Rabindra Sangeet artiste Roquaiya Hasina Neely's sixth music album “Rabir Kiran” was launched recently. Bengal Music Company has produced the album featuring 10 Prem Parjaye songs.
With her rendition style, Neely's recordings shed light on the subtle nuances of emotions expressed in Tagore compositions. Each of the 10 songs on the album have been recorded with utmost devotion -- particularly “Amar Moner Majhe Je Gaan Bajey”, “Biroho Modhur Holo Aji”, “Shawon Gagoney”, “Majhey Majhey Tobo Dekha Pai”, “Amar Moner Koner Bairey” and “Emon Din-e Tarey Bola Jaye”.
Neely completed a five-year course on Rabindra Sangeet from Chhayanaut. Drawing inspiration from her father, the late Rashidul Hasan, a Dhaka University teacher who was martyred during the Liberation War, Neely honed her talent under the revered Abdul Ahad, Dr. Sanjida Khatun, Waheedul Haq, Zahidur Rahim and Ajit Roy. She has been singing Tagore songs for four decades. She also performs songs composed by Atul Prasad, DL Roy and Rajanikanta Sen.
Previously, the artiste has received the prestigious City Cell-Channel i Music Award in 2008. She also performed in India, Singapore, USA, Canada, Australia and Germany. At present Neely is the director and a trainer of cultural organisation “Abhyudoy”, founded by Ajit Roy.
