Singing for Bangabandhu
There are many artistes in Bangladesh who have sung songs dedicating their love to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. However, Tota Miah performs out his tribute a little differently. The 55-year-old sings only for Bangabandhu and him alone, all to show his love and respect for him. Till now, he has written 25 song lyrics and composed them all by himself. Today, his passion has become his profession. He only wishes to sing Bangabandhu songs and earn a living from it. He has a mother, wife, two daughters and two sons to take care of. He started earning as a daily worker in his village. After a terrible accident which broke his hand, he took up singing as a profession. Tota Miah is from Barishal Agailbara district, and lives in the Amboula village. He attends to political programs, sings his own songs and earns on the honour placed on him by local leaders. Money is never actually asked for, and whatever the local politicians decide to provide makes him grateful. He has been singing for Bangabandhu and Bangakonna, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, for twelve years. Tota Miah’s signature attire can be recognised from his locket, which contains an image of Bangabandhu and Sheikh Haisna, his special hat and his wooden boat. The artiste confessed that he has dedicated his life to the Father of the nation and he will be presenting his own songs for the great leader indefinitely and exclusively.
