Decreasing our traditional song
« on: October 21, 2010, 07:10:47 AM »
Our traditional songs are losing their popularity and western music is having an inevitable influence on our music and culture. Bangladeshi modern songs are sung in western melody. Even use of the western instrument is inevitable in Bangladesh music. Dhol, Tabla, Sharad, Shetara, Dotara are being replaces bu guitar, drum, keyboard, harmonium and piano etc. Popularity of our traditional songs like jatra, jarigan, sharigan, kabigan, palligiti, Nazrul shangeet, Rabindranath shangeet is decreasing. Hindi music and English music are getting popular day by day. Band music and pop music are getting popular fast among the young generation.

This is a positive at the same time negative sign because of Hindi music and western music we forget and neglect our rich musical tradition.
