Gems of Nazrul’s honours the National Poet Kazi Nazrul Islam on his 46th death anniversary
Marking the National Poet Kazi Nazrul Islam's 46th death anniversary, Gems of Nazrul will release their 22nd production titled "Dhrubojoti" at the stroke of midnight on August 27 on Channel i and their official YouTube channel.
"Raising more awareness among younger generation about Nazrul's ideology, his philosophy and artistic masterpieces has always been the prime aim of our initiative," said Nazrul Award winning singer Sadya Afreen Mallick, the frontperson of Gems of Nazrul. "I hope we keep working towards achieving this goal successfully."
The production will feature around 50 prominent and promising artistes, including Ekushey Padak recipient Dalia Nausheen and Nazrul researcher Sumon Choudhury. They will perform the prayer song "Shuvro Shomojjol". Ibrar Tipu is the music composer of this production.
"My father poet Talim Hossain was the founder of Nazrul Academy during the 1960's – the first such government-led initiative in this country. Growing up under his guidance, we grew to love Nazrul since childhood. Today, when I see Gems of Nazrul and Sadya apa working relentlessly towards the same cause, it feels like I am reliving my childhood days," shares noted singer Yasmin Mushtari who is a part of this production, among many others. "The way Gems of Nazrul has remained undaunted in their efforts is commendable and I hope I get to stay with them for as long as possible."
The video for this track has been shot in a beautiful park maintained by the Dhaka North City Corporation. The natural serenity of the park complements the theme and mood of the song.
