Ankhi, Samiul to perform at AFD today

An evening of Rabindra Sangeet titled ‘Sanjher Akash Bhorabo Gaane Gaane’ by singer Ankhi Halder with elocutionist Samiul Islam Poluck will be held this evening at Auditorium Nouvelle Vague of Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) in Dhanmondi of the capital.

Ankhi Halder completed the five-year certificate course on Tagore songs at Shurer Dhara, a prestigious music school in Bangladesh, and has been teaching music there since 2009. Halder, a disciple of Rezwana Choudhury Bannya, one of the leading practitioners of Tagore songs in the South Asian subcontinent, has performed in reputable venues, major television channels as well as in Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Switzerland, Indonesia, and India, among others. Halder rendered eight songs in the Shruti Gitabitan — a phenomenal compendium of all the 2,232 songs from Gitabitan by Rabindranath Tagore. Her first studio album was released this year titled ‘Toma Paney Chahi’ on the Impress Audio Vision label.

Elocutionist Samiul Islam Poluck is a gold medallist at Jatiyo Shikkha Shoptaho and a regular artist of Bangladesh Television (BTV). His velvet baritone and unique poetry presentation make him immensely popular among the class audiences at home and abroad. His first solo recitation album ‘ITI RABINDRANATH’ was released from Hindustan Records, India.
