Popular Bangladeshi musical group Ghaashphoring Choir will perform every track of their recently released debut album, Kichu Kotha Kichu Gaan, on the second day of Dhaka Lit Fest. The performance will be held at Bangla Academy’s Nazrul Stage starting from 2:45pm on Friday.

The group will be performing their full album with a special appearance from guest artist Rezaul Karim Leemon from the band Leemonade.

The album, released on October 19, is the result of over 3 years of work. It comprises of 8 tracks, which include new arrangements of Bangla songs of different genres, ranging from folk to contemporary Bangla music and one original piece.

It features Anusheh Anadil and Meghdol’s Shibu Kumer Shill, as well as other guest instrumentalists, and has been mixed and mastered by Buno of the Bangladeshi folk-rock band, Bangla.

Armeen Musa, popular Bangladeshi musician and founder of Ghaashphoring Choir, told the Dhaka Tribune’s Showtime: “Ghaashphoring will be doing our last show of the album launch series. The show will feature guest artist Leemon, as well as songs from the new album.

“I am performing songs from my new album, but also some poetry and songs curated especially for the Dhaka Lit Fest.

“I will be performing solo, and afterwards, I will invite my band to join me onstage,” added Armeen.

Dhaka Lit Fest began with a pilot event in 2011 under the aegis of the world famous Hay-on-Wye festival. With three rapid iterations—2012, 2013 and 2014—the festival established Dhaka’s place in the global literary circuit. 

In 2015, the festival celebrated its fifth anniversary, and with Sadaf Saaz, Ahsan Akbar and K Anis Ahmed as directors of the festival, it assumed a new name—Dhaka Lit Fest—to mark its commitment to promoting Dhaka, and Bangladeshi literature and culture to the world.

The festival is focused primarily on literature, but embraces culture and ideas more broadly, generating discussions on a wide array of topics: fiction and literary non-fiction to history, politics and society, poetry and translations, science and mathematics, philosophy and religion.
