Sadi Mohammad's latest endeavour

Noted artiste Sadi Mohammad's new album was launched on May 30 at the main auditorium, National Museum. The album, Amakey Khujey Pabey Bhorer Shishirey includes eleven songs -- all composed and rendered by Sadi. Though the artiste has several albums to his name, this album marks his debut as a music composer.

Sadi Mohammad's music career spans over a decade. The artiste has carved a niche for himself and is considered as one of the leading Tagore singers.

Veteran singer Syed Abdul Hadi unveiled the album. Kazi Shahed Ahmed, editor of Aajker Kagoj, presided over the programme.

Syed Abdul Hadi congratulated Sadi for his latest endeavour and hoped for his success as a composer.

After the launch, Sadi Mohammad and Lili Islam performed a duet Ucha ucha pabat, a song from Chorjapad. It was followed by a rendition of Sri Jaydev's verses from Geet Govinda, Shita kamala ucha mangala. Sadi and Lili also rendered Chaina mago Raja hotey, a Shyama sangeet.

Singer Shakil Zafar accompanied Sadi during the duets -- Shurer ei jhorna and Eito notun roshey mou.

Sadi also performed songs of Tagore, Nazrul, Atulprashad and DL Roy. The evening wrapped up with Sadi rendering Kobitae ei phaguney kete jaye raat.
