PAST EVENTS

GUTHRIE IN DHAKA

I organized a 2-day music festival hosting world-renowned guitar virtuoso Guthrie Govan (UK). He was accompanied by Mohini Dey (India) on bass and Gino Banks (India) on drums to perform live at Krishibid Institution Bangladesh on February 26, 2017. Their performance was preceded by opening acts from Quanta, Samir Hafiz and Wasiun, X-Factor (Iqbal Asif Jewel, Manam Ahmed, Raef Al Hasan Rafa and Aldnane Alam) and Ershad Zaman. Guthrie also held a guitar clinic at Gulshan Shooting Club the following day.

CONCERT REVIEWS
Guitar virtuoso Guthrie Govan was given a hero’s welcome by musicians in Bangladesh with shreds, riffs, and solos to inaugurate The Rock Project Dhaka.

For all our enthusiasm and passion for the sound that an electric guitar can make, we have never been visited by an internationally-acclaimed guitarist. Until Sunday night.

The Rock Project Dhaka rather ambitiously endeavoured to bring Guthrie Govan to Dhaka. A guitarist’s guitarist, his name would not be familiar to many. But for those who know of him, they will be attending the guitar clinic in the afternoon today. I did.

The concert held at Krishibid Institute, Bangladesh (KIB) was a landmark in the music industry of Bangladesh. As Rasheeq Rayhan, guitarist (Quanta) and organiser (The Rock Project Dhaka) said: “This put Bangladesh on the map.”

CONCERT FOR A HUMANITARIAN CAUSE

Heavy rains triggered a deadly spate of landslides in at least 30 places of the hill district, Rangamati, at the southeastern Bangladesh on June 13, 2017. The landslides and intense flooding claimed the lives of at least 140 people in the region and at least 5,000 homes were destroyed or badly damaged.

It was one of Bangladesh’s deadliest natural disasters in the past decade — worse even than a 2007 landslide that killed about 130 people in the port city of Chittagong.

While many rescue operations and independent donations were undergoing, we stood beside the landslide victims by donating our entire profit from the concert. There was also a donation booth in the venue, where lot of people donated that was used to help the victims further.
