The website of this event said, “Bangladesh has a rich cultural heritage that is unparalleled in this world. To truly discover the depths of it would take more than a lifetime. Our country’s folk music has yet to spread its wings in the global stage and stagger the hearts of people with its poetic pull. We thought that it’s about time that changed-we need to get out there.Thus the birth of it.”
