To pay homage to Nayakraj Razzak and renowned singer Abdul Jabbar, Star Melodies, The Daily Star's regular initiative to promote Bangla music, recently hosted a special musical soiree highlighting songs recorded by singer Abdul Jabbar, as well as those lip-synced by Nayakraj Razzak in his films.
“Bashir Ahmed was one of the chief architects of the golden era of our Bangla music. Since his death in 2014 his musical presence has been a great loss. He was committed to music, and chose this as a profession unlike many who followed it as a pastime. It's a pity that many of our golden melodies will not be heard anymore,” remarked Syed Abdul Hadi, referring to the late singer and music director, Bashir Ahmed, whose birthday was on November 18.
