Nazrul fair at Nazrul Academy premises

A two-day Nazrul fair was recently held at the Nazrul Academy premises. The event featured performances by 11 upcoming and talented Nazrul singers.
The fair was the first of its kind by the Academy and will go a long way in promoting Nazrul Sangeet. “Due to lack of exposure, talented Nazrul singers are on the decline. Some are switching to other forms of music, which is very unfortunate.

Shikha Rouf a popular singer from Chhayanat performed “Nohey nohey prio”, “Chand herichhey”, “Tumi shunitey cheona”, “Jao jao tumi phirey”, “Brojogopi kheley hori”. She was followed by Nawshin Liala.

Next he performed a ghazal “Piya piya piya Papiya phukarey”. Zubayer ended his performance with the song “Shokhi shey hori kyamon bol”.
