Ekushey Padak winning musician Julhas Uddin Ahmed has passed away from dengue. He was 88.

The musician breathed his last at his home in Munshiganj’s Baraikhali village on Friday afternoon.

Julhas tested positive for the mosquito-borne virus three days ago, said media reports quoting his niece Nasreen Ahmed.

He was laid to rest at his family graveyard in Dakkhin Baraikhali on Friday evening after a namaz-e-janaza.

Julhas received the Ekushey Padak in 2017 for his special contribution to music.

The son of Yar Ali Bepari and Hasna Begum, he was born on November 10 in 1933 at Baraikhali village.

The youngest of four sisters and five brothers, he lost his sight to smallpox at the age of two-and-a-half.

Julhas started his career playing music with Bangladesh Betar in 1960 and was accorded with many awards including Nazrul Gold Medal, Nasir Uddin Gold Medal and AB Bank-Channel I Lifetime Achievement Award.
