‘Singing the boatman, the woman, the fakir’ is a journey into the compositions, politics and musical preoccupations of Hemango Biswas. The performance will delve into Hemango’s vast body of work- from Bahirana to Gansangit and other forms of folk and protest music. At a time where socio-political movements grow divisive and fractured, it is timely to revisit and revive the spirit of Hemango’s music- to reiterate the importance of culture, and the role of the protest song. The performance will be presented by Rongili Biswas.
When: June 18, from 7:00PM onwards
Entry free, but contributions are welcome to help make this event a success.
