Sohrab Hossain passes away

Pioneer Nazrul Sangeet singer Sohrab Hossain passed away yesterday morning. He was 91.
The veteran musician, who dedicated most of his life in preserving songs of National Poet Kazi Nazrul Islam, had been suffering from old-age complications.
He was admitted to a capital's hospital on November 29 following complicated neck pain.
Born in Ayeshtola village near Ranaghat of Nadia, West Bengal, on April 9, 1922, Sohrab Hossain was one of those who made Nazrul songs popular among younger generations.
The government honoured this Sangeet guru with the Independence Day Award, one of the highest civilian awards in Bangladesh, in 1980.
