Alliance Française de Dhaka will organize a Rabindra sangeet evening by Ankhi Halder with elocutionist Samiul Islam Poluck today (Friday). The event titled Shajher Akash Bhorabo Gaane Gaane, will be held at Alliance Française de Dhaka’s Auditorium Nouvelle Vague in Dhaka.

The lead performer of the event, Rabindra sangeet singer, 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 since 2009.

Ankhi, a disciple of Rezwana Choudhury Bannya who is 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 medalist at Jatiyo Shikkha Shoptaho (National Education Week) and a regular artist of Bangladesh Television (BTV). 

His velvet baritone and unique poetry presentation makes him immense popular among  audiences at home and abroad. 

His first solo recitation album “Iti Rabindranath” was released from Hindustan Records, India. 

The event is free for all with limited seatings, so seats will be assigned on a first come, first served basis.
