An evening to honour Kazi Nazrul
Another cultural event, Sahodara – a soiree celebrating songs and poetry together – was held at Uttam Mancha, recently. It was all about songs by Kazi Nazrul and his contemporary music composers, lyricists from Bengali music. It was accompanied by poetry featuring various subjects. Sutapa Bhattacharya and Mounita Chatterjee, both friends, joined hand in hand to mesmerize the audiences. Kazi Nazrul's songs were performed in the first half while artists like Salil Chowdhury, Sudhin Dasgupta, R D Burman Gauri Prasanna Majumdar etc were remembered in the second half. The concept was designed and organized by Shyam Sarkar. Nazrul's songs like 'Dolon Chapa Bone Dole', 'Gohin Raate Ghum Ke Ele Bhangate', are worth a mention.
