Bangladesh Bands Gen Next is a project aimed to promote young and upcoming bands by providing them with a unique platform to express their talents. The programme has selected 26 young bands from Chattogram for its first run.
Rajib, Chinmoy, Joydeep, Robin and Roktim make up Artonad, a promising rock band which has performed their originals all over Bangladesh. Their song, Gontobbohin, sends a message against some of the hypocrisies of the society. "We tried to portray some of our anguish, that we often face in our day-to-day lives," said Chinmoy, the lead guitarist of the band. The artistes hope that the audience will like their endeavor.
The programme is helmed by advertising agency Creato, and produced by 49 Blue. The programme is sponsored by Marks Full Cream Milk Powder. Gontobbohin is available on the Marks' YouTube channel.
