In the writings and songs of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore, we find reflections of other legends. Th e converse is also true. Be it Shakespeare in his sonnets or the nature loving Wordsworth or the path-finder Gibran – who in one way or the other have enlightened the world with similar ways of thinking. Unknowingly, so many great thinkers find common routes to perceive, procreate, propagate and present.

Vocalist Shwapnil Shojib and Nirjher Chowdhury with orator Samiul Islam Poluck and Dancer Aviroop Sharma from Bangladesh present an extravaganza of songs, sonnets and sonatas engrossing ghazals, thumri, songs of Lalan, Nazrul and Tagore interspersed with Shakespearean sonnets, works of Jibanananda Das, Keats and the like, to bring a whiff of the soul of Bangla to the UK.

In association with the Press Wing of Bangladesh High Commission & Summit Evening of young Bangladeshi performers
