Alpha Bangla celebrates Bangla music festival

MUMBAI: Alpha Bangla gifted to its viewers a musical extravaganza, Dui Bangla Simanaheen on 26 December. The musical show had artists playing from the two Banglas (West Bengal & Bangladesh) thus breaking all shackles of earthly barriers and bringing people closer to each other.

The show started with a mind-blowing performance by Tanmoy Bose and his band Taal Tantra. The most interesting part of Taal Tantra was a 'jugal-bandi' between a dhak (a traditional bengali drum) and an African thumba. Next on stage was the Princess of Rabindra-sangeet Indrani Sen. Her melodious voice left the viewers dumbstruck and swaying, Informs a company release.

Speaking on this occasion, Alpha bangle head J.K.Ray says, "The overwhelming response to this event is encouraging for us to come forth with more of these events. We feel entertaining our viewers by encouraging Bangla talent serves a stronger purpose than mere entertainment. This is the reason why we as a channel, seek greater involvement of our viewers."

The artists of Bangladesh did steal part of the show. Abdul Quddus Boati came on to the stage, in traditional Baul attire and set feet tapping with his traditional yet contemporary folk songs. The next artist was the folk maestro from West Bengal... the one and only Swapan Basu, who left audiences awestruck by his passionate rendition of "Sunecho Nandalal..." which he sang in two different voices.

The next two artists were perhaps the most awaited ones of the evening. Baby Nazneen who's popularly known as Black Diamond in Bangladesh did justice to her title. Last but not the least, James with his band Nagar Baul came on stage. His Bengali trance left the audience high on their seats, adds the release.

The SMS contest that Alpha Bangla had organised for its viewers on the theme Dui Bangla Simanaheen got tremendous response and pulled a crowd of more than 3000 to watch the show, claims the channel.
