Bangla Music Festival

This three months-long unique festival (চতুর্থ বাংলা সঙ্গীত উৎসব), returning to different prestigious venues of London (e.g. Keats House, Rich Mix, Nehru Centre etc.) for the fourth times, showcases the splendour of Bangla Music and its spectacular latitude through mind blowing performances (with relevant translation wherever necessary). It features the evolution of Bangla music (evolved approximately at 730 AC) from Charjya-Pod, folk, Kirton, Toppa, Poncho-Kobi (Tagore,D.L Roy, Atul Prasad, Rajanikanto and Najrul) to Bangla Adhunik (Salil, Manna, Sochin and all other doyens and legendary composers of Bangla music).
