Rewaz Performing and Arts Society and Bangladesh Jute Research Institute presented a unique night of music on Saturday (2 March) at the Bangladesh Jute Research Institute, organizing an enthralling session of Santoor and Tabla.

At the event, Santoor and Tabla accompaniment was performed by two young talented artists from India - Anannya Bagh and Rahul Chatterjee.

The audience who joined the event was immersed in the magic of the melody of Anyanya Bagh's Santoor and Rahul Chatterjee's Tabla accompaniment, drifting the music lovers into a whole new world.

Md Abdul Awal, Director General of Bangladesh Jute Research Institute was present as the chief guest on this musical night, which was also joined by Shaheen Samad, the Ekushey Padak winner music artist and freedom fighter, as the special guest.

Professor Dr AHM Mostafizur Rahman, Advisor of Rewaz Performing and Arts Society and former teacher of Dhaka University delivered the welcome speech at the event.

“Rewaz Performing and Arts Society always wants the development of music practice in the country. We are organizing this event to encourage those involved in the classical music practice of the country and to exchange ideas and experiences between the artists of the two countries,” Dr AHM Mostafizur Rahman said.

Santoor is a popular stringed instrument used in classical music and a famous local musical instrument of Jammu and Kashmir, India; but it originally came from Persia. Although this instrument is very popular in India, the practice of santoor is very few in Bangladesh.

“This particular instrument is practised by very few people, among them women artists are even less. Anyanya Bagh is one of the few artists who are currently practising santoor in the subcontinent, and Rahul Chatterjee is one of India's brightest stars who is known for his unique playing style,” he added.

Md Abdul Awal, Director General of Bangladesh Jute Research Institute thanked Rewaz Performing and Arts Society for joining them in organizing the event. He reiterated his commitment to continue any cooperation to encourage music practice in the future.

Shaheen Samad expressed his admiration for Santoor and Tabla's accompaniment and praised Rewaz Performing and Arts Society for playing a significant role in the cultural scene of the country.
