Folk music evening at BSA today

Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) is organizing a folk musical evening titled ‘Jhumur-Tusu-Bhadu’ with Monira Islam Pappu and Tumpa Das today at the Music and Dance Centre auditorium of BSA in Segun Bagicha of the capital.

Jhumur is a kind of folk song sung before the Chhau dance starts. The songs are also based on the divine love of Radha and Krishna and the sublime character of the theme is maintained.

Bhadu Gaan, an inseparable part of Bhadu festival reflects the colours of rural society. It used to be very popular in Burdwan, Bankura and Midnapore. But in Birbhum, the existence of this unique genre is being threatened by the rising popularity of cinema and television. Bhadu songs are composed extemporaneously and sung on each night of the festival, depict the Goddesses as young girls.

Like Jhumur and Bhadu, Tusu is a variety of folk songs from Purulia.

The event is open to all.

Where: BSA, Segun Bagicha

When: 6pm, today
