40 years of nation-creation through music

6 March 2013 - 30 April 2013 / 09:30


London- based Visual Artist Saif Osmani presents a series of paintings and sketches which trace the history of Bangladesh as seen through the poetry and musical influences of Rabindranath Tagore, Kazi Nazrul Islam, Hason Raja as well as rural Baul singers such as Lalon Fakir to more contemporary fusion musicians here in the UK.
