Synopsis

Enchanting audio performance with various musicians each playing a long-sustaining note on a harmonium, a traditional instrument that is dying out in Bangladesh owing to the strictures of Islamic law. The artist uses these long drones to highlight the violence and increasing civil unrest in Bangladesh. This powerful drone performance, presented as part of the Dhaka Art Summit, serves as a counterpoint to the social upheavals, censorship and division arising in Bangladesh.
