30 folk artistes from six countries - Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Ireland and China performed soul-wrenching Folk songs from Nov 12-14, at Bangladesh Army Stadium in Dhaka last year. South-Asia’s largest Folk Music Festival saw legendary Folk Queen Abida Parveen, Saieen Zahoor of Pakistan, Papon, Paban Das Baul, Arka Mukhaerjee from India, Niamh Ni Charra of Ireland, Yunnan Art Troupe from China and many others came together for three magnificent nights, a manifesto of folk culture, musical skills and pure genius-ness. This year, the festival will come at you on a bigger scale, with so much more to offer.
A country or a culture’s true identity lies in its folk art and music. Not only does it tell the story of life but also speaks of religion and the variation of deep-rooted musical brilliance. It’s difficult to find people who haven’t been touched by the tune that comes from the depth of his/her cultural essence. We aspired to bring forth this sheer musical experience on a single platform. The result is Dhaka International Folk Fest.
