Grameenphone's latest project, "Notun Gaaner Khoje", gives aspiring singers and songwriters an opportunity to showcase their talent to the world by collaborating with one of Bangladesh's best music directors, Fuad Almuqtadir. The talent hunt, which will go on till February 15, requires entrants to sing and upload an original or a cover song with the hashtag #gaanerkhoje.
"We are looking for 3 talented vocalists who have a distinct voice or style," says Fuad. "Personally, I really appreciate talents who write their own music." The famed music director told The Daily Star that he was particularly excited for this competition. "We have discovered so many talented young artistes till now that it will be difficult to choose only 3," he says, highlighting the significance of remote collaboration.
"Grameenphone's message in this campaign is – anything is possible with the internet. I am working remotely from the USA, musicians from Toronto and Kolkata will give their takes for the songs that are created."
The collaboration is international, and the stage is set. Show your talent to the world with #gaanerkhoje to participate!
