Chhayanaut recently observed the 74th death anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore at its Dhanmondi auditorium in city. The event featured musical soiree and recitation.
Tagore, one of the most celebrated composers in the region, wrote over 2,000 songs that continue to mesmerise the listeners to this day. So it naturally makes sense that the cultural organisation has devoted almost the entirety of its programme to his songs, featuring some of the most prominent themes explored by Tagore - devotion, love, nature and spirituality.
There were both solo and group performances at the event. One such performance involved a rendition of "Tomarei Koriyachhi Jiboneo O Dhruvotara", performed by the members of the organisation. They also rendered "Sraboner Gagoner Gay" and "Jay Din Sraboner Din Jay". The solo performers sang songs of different themes. Dipanjan Mukherjee presented "Jotokhon Tumi Amar", while Iffat Ara rendered "Aji Jhorer Raate". Laisa Ahmed Lisa rendered "Asru Bhora Bedona Dike Dike". Other artistes of the event included Marufa Monjuri Soumi, Partha Pratim Roy, and Oishee Rubaina. Besides the songs, the programme also featured recitations of Tagore poems.
