Curtain falls on 3-day mega event today

The curtain on three-day ‘Dhaka International Folk Festival 2017’ will fall today at Bangladesh Army Stadium in the capital.

The mega event is featuring a number of local musicians like Fakir Shahabuddin, Shahnaz Beli, Baula, and Shahjahan Munshi, among others.

Artistes from five countries to perform on closing day

On the other hand, famed Indian artist Papon and international music groups and bands like Mekaal Hasan Band from Pakistan, Mauricio Tizumba & Sextet group from Brazil, Tenzin Choegyal group from Tibet along with famous Indian singers Nooran Sisters were seen mesmerising the audience on the first two days.

Today, on the concluding day, the festival will begin with the performance of local singer Shahnaz Beli. She performed in US, Canada, UK, Italy, Germany, Austria, France, UAE and so many other countries and enthralled audience at these spots.

On the other hand, Basudeb Das Baul from India, Rastak from Iran, Grammy Winner Tinariwen from Mali and Mikael Hemniti Winther from Denmark are scheduled to perform tonight at the same event.

Basudeb Das Baul is a prodigy who came up in the musical world from the hub of artistry-- Shantiniketan.

His songs are of Baul, a mystical folk that resonates for generations now. The disciples of Baul, like him, devote their entire lives to the practice of metaphysical poetry and songs and in the search for God.

Mikael Hemniti Winther -a classical pianist at the age of just 9, became a prodigy with guitar at the age 18. Winther serves a busy life as a Danish diplomat in many countries, however, his true passion for the love of music have never once deviated.

Rastak -the ambassadors of the Persian music—and the soothing sound of their Tar, Setar, Daf, Santur, Tanbur or Tonbak will make people wonder and lose their soul to the rich sounds of their musical heritage.

Tinariwen --Grammy Award winners in 2012-- will represent the song ‘Aman Imam’. This song transpires their popularity to the world of a nomadic band of Touareg.
