3-day ‘Radha Raman Sangeet Utsab’ begins tomorrow

In memory of noted music composer and lyricist Radha Raman Dutta on the occasion of his 100th death anniversary, Radharaman Sangskritik Kendra, in association with Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA), is organising a three-day music festival titled ‘Radha Raman Sangeet Utsab’, from tomorrow at the premises of BSA. Noted folk singer Saidur Rahman Boyati will inaugurate the festival. This year, the festival has been dedicated to noted artist Qayyum Chowdhury, who died on November 30 last year. The festival will feature a discussion on the life and work of noted music bard Radha Ramam, along with musical performances of Baul, Dhamail, Kirtan, Gurubadi and other mystic songs by prominent music figures, and will continue till November 28.
Born in 1833, Radha Raman Dutta was an influential Sylheti dhamail music composer and lyricist from Sylhet region. Radha Raman wrote and composed over 2,000 songs in the Baul tradition and was known in particular for his ‘Geets’ and ‘Dhamail’ songs-compositions to traditional dance forms. He has been cited as the creator of the Dhamail art form. Raman’s compositions are performed today in weddings all over Bangladesh. Many popular Bengali songs of today were written originally by Radha Raman and his songs are sung by modern professional musicians in Bangladesh and India. A prominent Baul (mystic minstrel), Raman’s body of work has led him to be considered ‘the father of dhamail songs’. His famous songs--‘Bhromor Koio Giya’, ‘Kare Dhekabo Moner Dhukko’, ‘Sham Chikon Kalia’, ‘Bologo Bologo Shoki’, ‘Ami Robo Na Robo Na Grihe’, ‘Amar Bondhu Doyamoy’, ‘Jugol Milon Hoilo Go’, ‘Pap Ar Punno’, ‘Ketore Shikhailo Radha Namtire’ and others are widely performed by modern Bengali musicians. l
