Many Happy Returns to Mustafa Zaman Abbasi

Today is the 80th birthday of Ekushey Padak winning veteran music exponent and singer Mustafa Zaman Abbasi. To mark the occasion in style, Kathpencil Sahitya Sangsad has organised a celebration programme at the Kobi Sufia Kamal Auditorium of Bangladesh National Museum in the capital today.

Presided over by Professor Emeritus Rafiqul Islam, Professor Abdullah Abu Sayeed will attend the programme as the chief guest.

Besides, paying homage to Mustafa Zaman Abbasi, eminent singers Runa Laila, Kanak Chapa, Fatema Tuz Zohra, Indra Mohan Rajbangshi, Kiron Chandra Ray, Anima Mukti Gomez and Nashid Kamal, among others, will perform at the event, Kathpencil Sahitya Sangsad president Simanto Akram informed.

Moreover, an anthology of Mustafa Zaman Abbasi titled ‘Urilo Sonar Payra’, edited by Simanto Akram, will also be published on the occasion today.

Among others, Ferdousi Rahman, Rezwana Chowdhury Bannya, Sharmini Abbas, Ali Imam and Faridur Reza Sagor will deliver speeches at the programme.

When asked about his realisation about life at this age, Mustafa Zaman Abbasi answered, “On this day, I am really thinking of one particularly, whom I would meet after my death. I have done a lot of things in my life; I have written and sung songs, playfully made fun and many more. But everything will come to an end now. So, before the end of everything, I am just thinking of almighty Allah. I pray to see my father in the afterlife”.

Mustafa Zaman Abbasi is one of the most prominent Bangladeshi musicologists. He was awarded with Ekushey Padak in 1995 for his contributions in the country’s folk music. He specialises in Bhawaiya music (a folk musical form). He has published more than fifty books. His notable books include ‘Abbasuddin Ahmed, Manush o Shilpi’, ‘Kazi Nazrul Islam, Man and Poet’ and ‘Puribo Ekaki’. Abbasi is the youngest son of legendary folk singer-composer Abbas Uddin Ahmed. l
