Brazilian musician Mauricio Tizumba, a great sucess in Bangladesh
Brazilian composer-singer Mauricio Tizumba and his sextet presented was one of the most exciting performance of the third edition of the Dhaka International Folk Festival opened in November Bangladesh’s capital.
With his back-up musicians all playing various kinds of percussion instruments, Tizumba brought the exuberance of pulsating Afro-Brazilian beats that resonated superbly with the audience, said Bangladeshi newspaper Daily Star.
“The language being totally foreign did not stop the spectators from dancing and singing along to the chant-like songs”.
Great applause was reserved for the night’s final performer Papon, the celebrated Indian singer hailing from Assam. With his sonorous baritone, the singer sang songs from his native land, as well as from other Indian regions such as Rajasthan and Punjab, and even a Nepalese song. An energetic crowd sang along from his very first song “Dinae Dinae” to other hits such as “Tere Bin Nai Lagda” and “O Megh”, dancing and making merry under the open sky of the Army Stadium on a cool November night.
