A total of 12 popular bands of the country are set to perform in a concert to raise awareness on autism at the Bangladesh Army Stadium in Dhaka on September 28.

The bands are Miles, Warfaze, Souls, Dalchut, Feedback, Shironamhin, Maqsood O’ Dhaka, Powersurge, Nemesis, Vickings, Arbovirus and Dreek, according to a press release issued on Monday.

The event is being jointly organized by PFDA-Vocational Training Centre (PFDA-VTC), Bangladesh Musical Bands Association (Bamba), the Ministry of Social Welfare and SkyTracker Limited.

The concert was announced earlier on September 16 at a press conference, which was attended by PFDA-VTC Trust Chairman Sajida Rahman Danny, Bamba President Hamin Ahmed and General Secretary Sheikh Monirul Islam Tipu, and SkyTracker’s Chief Executive Officer Doza Alan, along with other members of the Bamba executive board.

Hamin said: “Bamba has always been vocal about social issues, be it helping disaster victims or raising voice for a cause. Throughout the 30 years of BAMBA’s existence, we have arranged many concerts as efforts to not only provide entertainment but also to spread social awareness messages.

“Unfortunately, people with autism often face isolation and discrimination in our society. With this concert, we hope to make an impact and change the social situation. We want to increase the acceptance, respect and support for them.”

Weighing in on the issue, famous singer Maqsood, vocalist of Maqsood O’ Dhaka, added that there were many ongoing efforts to raise awareness about autism across the country and this concert was a part of that effort.

“We hope that this will change people’s perception towards autism in a positive way," he said.
