Shilpakala celebrates monsoon thru dance and music

Celebrating the rainy season, Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) arranged a programme titled ‘Barsha Mangal’ featuring dance and music at the National Theatre Hall of BSA on Thursday.

 A significant variety of artistes along with the artists of BSA were scheduled for the event which started with an instrumental music performance, followed by a welcome speech by BSA director general Liaquat Ali Lucky. He said, “We have six magnificent seasons in the country, but as we live in the urban area, we cannot truly enjoy it. The artistic elements that we have put together inspired from the six seasons are quite rare in the world.”

The occasion continued with captivating chorus renditions ‘Mon Mor Megher Sangi’, ‘Esho He Sajal Shyam’, ‘Amrita Megher Bari’, ‘Aji Jhara Jhara Mukharo Badalo Dine’ and ‘Gahan Ghono Chhailo’ by the artistes of BSA. Dance artistes of BSA performed group dance with the songs ‘Pordeshi Megh’, ‘Shaon Gagan Ghor Ghonoghota’ and ‘Borne Gondhe Chhonde Geetite’.

The programme also featured solo poetry recitation by Kristy Hefaz, Rabindra Sangeet by Nobonita, Nazrul Sangeet by Yasmin Mustari, and folk songs by Abu Bokor Siddique and modern songs by Rafiqul Alam.

Besides, artistes of BSA Mohona Das rendered ‘Megh Bolechhe Jabo Jabo’, Himadri Ray rendered ‘Sokhi Badhlo Badhlo Jhul Niya’, Sohanur Rahman presented ‘Ei Meghla Dine Ekla’, Suchitra Sutradhar rendered ‘Jodi Mon Kande Tumi chole Eso’, Abida Rahman Setu rendered ‘Akash Meghe Dhaka’, Hirok Sardar presented ‘Samudrer Kinare Bose’, Rokshana Akter Rupsha rendered ‘Ashar Maisha Bhasa Panire’ and Rafi Talukdar rendered ‘Sraboner Megh Gulo’.
