Subir Nandi to be remembered today

DL DESK, DHAKA
Subir Nandi to be remembered today

Recently-demised Ekushey Padak winning singer Subir Nandi will be remembered at a commemorative programme today at the National Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in Segun Bagicha of the capital.

Presided over by BSA director general Liaquat Ali Lucky, State Minister for Cultural Affairs KM Khalid will attend the event as chief guest, while noted singer Sabina Yasmin will be present as special guest.

BSA is organising the event to pay tribute to the iconic singer, where the singers, artists, lyricists and fans of Subir Nandi will be present.

Born in 1953 in Sylhet, Subir spent his childhood in Dhaka and Kolkata. He recorded his first song in 1972.

The song was written by Mohammed Muzakker and composed by Ustad Mir Kasem.

Since then, he sang notable songs like ‘Tumi Emoni Jaal Petecho Shongshare’, ‘Amar Ei Duti Chokh Pathor To Noi’, ‘Ek Je Chilo Sonar Konna’, and ‘O Amar Ural Ponkhire’, among others.

In a career spanning over four decades, Subir claimed to have sung 2,000 film songs - the second-highest by any male singer after Andrew Kishore. In 1994, he rendered songs at the House of Commons. Subir Nandi won the Bangladesh National Film Award for Best Male Playback Singer five times for ‘Mahanayak’ (1984), ‘Shuvoda’ (1986), ‘Srabon Megher Din’ (1999), ‘Megher Pore Megh’ (2004) and ‘Mohua Sundori’ (2015).

Subir Nandi died in a Singapore hospital on May 7 at the age of 66.
