Firoza Begum's Nazrul sangeet album released digitally

The album consists of popular Nazrul songs like “Bodhu Mitilo Naa Saadh,” “Aadho Dhoroni Alo,” “Janom Janom Gelo,” “Ekola Gori,” “Jato Ful Tato Bhul,” “Kotha Kao,” “Bhoria Poran Sunitechi Gaan,” “Chokh Gelo Chokh Gelo,” “Noyon Bhora Jol,” “Shunno E Bukey,” “Mor Prothom Moner Mukul,” and “Bhese Asa Sudur Smitir Surobhi.”

Firoza Begum played a great role in popularising Nazrul sangeet in South Asia, and she was the first person to sing in All India Radio. Firoza met poet Kazi Nazrul Islam at the age of 10, and eventually became a student of his. In 1942, she recorded her first Islamic song by the gramophone record company HMV, in 78 rpm disk format. Since then, 12 LP, 4 EP, 6 CD, and more than 20 audio cassette records have been released.

Robi Yonder Music says in a statement that the effort is a token of tribute to the National Poet Kazi Nazrul Islam, on his 40th death anniversary. They expect Nazrul sangeet will find it's popularity among the youth through an endeavour like this.
