To Chhayanat goes the credit for promoting Rabindra Sangeet. In particular, Waheedul Haque's name should be mentioned as one of the front liners in this genre.
To go with Waheedul Haque's philosophy, Chhayanat launched a new programme, titled “Waheedul Haque Sangeet Prabrajya”. Jatiyo Rabindra Sangeet Sammilon Parishad (JRSSP) will join hands with Chhayanat to make the programme a success, while Habib-Khairunnesa Smriti Foundation will provide the funds.
A musical soiree was held at the Chhayanat Sangskriti Bhaban on May 30 prior to the launching of the Sangeet Prabrajya. Chhayanat artistes performed Tagore songs at the programme.
General secretary of Chhayanat, Kairul Anam Shakil briefly highlighted the activities of the Sangeet Prabrajya. He said, “ The activities will begin soon in different parts of Bangladesh with the help of JRSSP and Habib Khairunnesa Smriti Foundation. Initially the activities will be conducted on a monthly basis. “ The endeavour of the Prabrajya is to develop young Tagore enthusiasts all over the country.”
Initially four Tagore artistes were selected to conduct the Sangeet Prabrajya. The artistes are Mansura Begum, Nilotpaul Shadhya, A T M Jahangir and Azizur Rahman. Each of the selected artistes for the Prabrajya will be called Sangeet Paribrajak (Music Voyager). Apart from these four artistes, Fahmida Khatun, Rezwana Chowdhury Bonya, Mita Haque and Laisa Ahmed Lisa also expressed their interest in the programme.
Among others, Bulbul Islam, general secretary of JRSSP and Captain M. Rahman of Habib-Kahirunnesa Smriti Foundation spoke at the programme. M. Rahman also recited excerpts from Rabindranath's poem Prithibi.
The musical soiree got off to a start with the rendition of Lakkhi jokhon ashbey by veteran artiste Fahmida Khatun. She also rendered Shey aamar gopon kotha. Azizur Rahman rendered Aami kaan pethey roi and Aanmona. Nilotpaul Shadhya sang Ekoda ki jani kon punner and Pipasha hai nahi mitilo. Mansura Begum rendered Toma lagi aankhi jagey.
Partho Tanvir Noved, Bulbul Islam and Lili Islam rendered Aami kebol swapon korechhi bapon, Hridoy aamar prokash holo and Ki shur bajey aamar praney respectively.
The musical soiree ended with a group rendition of Tomar shurer dhara.
