The Bauls who performed at the event said they sing to honour the creator, promoter, and pioneer of a genre of folk songs.

Ambassador and Head of Delegation of the European Union (EU) to Bangladesh, Rensje Teerink, hosted an event featuring Lalon music at her residence on Sunday night in an effort to spread the powerful and peaceful messages of Lalon Shah's songs across the world.

Prime Minister’s International Affairs Adviser Dr Gowher Rizvi, Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) President Dr Rubana Huq, many diplomats stationed in Dhaka, civil society members, and senior journalists were present at the musical evening, reports UNB.

“All humans are equal,” Ambassador Teerink said, adding that the messages of these songs are so important. She said the music and tradition is so rich that it should be really supported by all. 

“It (Lalon Shah's music) deserves a big platform.”

German Ambassador to Bangladesh Peter Fahrenholtz also said that he likes Lalon Shah's music. 

“When I came to Bangladesh I discovered this really old, traditional, beautiful music and I’m deeply moved.”

He wants to travel to Kushtia to attend the Lalon Festival, and spend two or three days to get to know all the musicians of that region.

The Bauls who performed at the event said they sing to honour the creator, promoter, and pioneer of a genre of folk songs.
