‘Sanjeeb Utshob’ at DU on Monday
The sixth edition of “Sanjeeb Utshob,” the fête that celebrates the life of late journalist, singer and lyricist Sanjeeb Choudhury, will be held in TSC premises at Dhaka University on Monday. The renowned musician will be remembered through a musical evening at Sanjeeb Chattar, with the program starting at 4pm. Born in Habiganj on December 25, 1964, Sanjeeb had met an untimely death following a bilateral cerebral ischemic stroke on November 19, 2007. One of the organisers of “Sanjeeb Utshob,” musician Joy Shahriar told Showtime that the first edition of the Utshob was held at DU’s Bokultola, but this year’s program would be held at TSC like the past two years. He also said: “All the young musicians performing on this show, including me, are philosophically inspired by the creations of Sanjeeb Da.” Joy also confirmed that musicians and bands including Tarun Band, Shuvo, Khayam Sanu Sandhi, Sovvota, Chitkar, GaanKobi, Arjan, Sina Hasan and Bangla Five, Purple Rain, Onuron and Khepa will perform at the Utshob. The whole event is organised and managed by Dhaka University Cultural Society, Dhaka University Band Society, Ajob Karkhana and other young and senior followers of Sanjeeb Chowdhury as a musician. Sanjeeb was also one of the two leading members of Bangla band Dalchhut – the other is Bappa Mazumder – who wrote and composed many hit songs. However, Dalchhut would not be performing at the Utshob this year as they are already scheduled to perform in a show outside Dhaka on Monday, Joy confirmed. A left leaning political and cultural activist, before his death, Sanjeeb had given his fans many timeless tracks including “Ami Tomakei Bole Debo,” “Shada Moyla,” “Bhaaj Kholo Anondo Dekhao,” “Amake Ondho Kore Diyechilo Chaad.” He and Dalchhut also turned Bangla folk songs like “Gari Chole Na,” “Bioscope,” “Kon Mistori Nao Banaise” and more into urban culture.
