Amzad Hossain Siddique, an artiste, professional drums player and music composer in Bangladesh shares his lifestyle with The Daily Observer
As music was such an integral part of his family, it is no wonder that Amzad gravitated towards it. But he did it his way--solid, passionate, furious, raw. This is what led him to be the drummer. His elder brother Belayet Hossain, himself a guitarist, first explored his talent in music and admitted him in the 'Bangladesh Shishu Academy' for an institutional learning. Starting with Tabla, his mind swiftly diverted into drums playing. And thus the journey began to reach the zenith. He played drums in many famous bands in Bangladesh like Pentagon, Mrittika, Meghdol, Etcetra. His outstanding drums playing caught the eye of popular band "Fuad n Friends" in the year 2009. They recruited the prodigious drummer instantly. Now, in the history of Bangladeshi bands, rock and pop music "Amzad Hossain" is a name shining in the sky of music, as a drummer, music composer, an artiste and finally as an honest and dedicated human being. A song "Sonabondhure" is his famous bubbling work for the album of "Anek Kisu".
