Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
For the fifth time in a row, the
much-aniticipated event for
enthusiasts of Indian classical music, the Bengal Classical Music was held from November 24 to 28 running
everyday from 7:00pm to 5:00am at the Army Stadium in Dhaka.
The five day festival was dedicated
to the recently-deceased ambidextrous littérateur Syed Shamsul Haq who has been closely associated with Bengal Foundation since it's inception. The
festival featured performances of major disciplines from Indian classical music and dance carried out by local
and Indian artiste.
Performers of this year’s festival were Aashish Khan, a sarod artiste from India who is the grandson of Ustad Allauddin Khan (born in Shibpur, Brahmanbaria, Bangladesh), son of Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, and nephew of Annapurna Devi. A Grammy nominee, Khan has performed extensively in both India and abroad alongside numerous distinguished artists which include John Barham, George Harrison, Ringo Starr and Eric Clapton. Girija Devi is an iconic Indian classical vocalist of the Seniya and Banaras Gharana. Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia is an internationally renowned exponent of the bansuri. Pandit Shivkumar Sharma whose name, to many aficionados of classical music, is synonymous with the santoor. He is credited for bringing the instrument from the realm of Kashmiri folk music into that of the Indian classical platform, while facing resistance from the most conservative quarters.
Ajoy Chakrabarty, a vocalist from India, is considered a doyen of the Patiala-Kasur style because of his
extensive training who can also
portray the key features of other major classical gharanas. U Rajesh, a mandolin artist, is a Grammy nominee with John McLaughlin for his album Floating Point. Abhijit Banerjee, a tabla player from India, who founded Tarang and
a member of the raga jazz group, Arohi Ensemble. n
