Starting Of Bangla:
The alternative folk band 'BANGLA' has enchanted audience by presenting timeless folk songs in a contemporary style. If one seeks to define their music one could label 'BANGLA' an alternative folk act. This new band is certainly making waves with its unique quality of music that is taken from our rich cultural history but presented in a trendy manner to cater to the preferences of the present generation. The band was set up in 1998 by a group of enterprising young artistes. The band's vocalist Anusheh has a deep and mesmerising voice and the others, Kartik, Buno, Arnab and Shantanu complement her vocals with their skillful playing. Anusheh is trained in classical music from India, Buno picked up Hason Raja's songs from Sylhet, while Arnab learned Rabindrashangeet at Shantiniketan where he was a Fine Arts student. The quintet met and used to jam together.

In the end of the year 2000, Bangla captivated the audience in a show at the Fine Arts Institute amphi theatre. "Initially, we had to deal with scepticism, but people soon realised that we are actually bringing back songs that had been forgotten," says Buno. The band's listeners vary between the ages six to 60. One of their ardent fans is actually a six-year-old girl named Mita who always shows up at their concerts and sings along with them.
