Souls to perform new numbers live todayCultural Correspondent
Souls will present its popular songs today in the phono live concert called Close Up Call-er Gaan on Desh TV at 9:45pm today.
In the show, Souls fans will be able to talk to the band members and request their favourite numbers.
‘Besides presenting our hit numbers, we will render a few songs that we have never presented before. We don’t want to disclose the list right now as we want to keep the whole show a surprise for our fans,’ Partha Barua, the troupe’s lead guitarist and vocalist told New Age.
Barua also mentioned that the band will play some evergreen numbers such as Mon shudhu mon chhuyechhe, Brishti dekhey onek kedechhi, Colleger corridor and other hit numbers as per the demand of the audience.
‘We enjoy performing in the phono live concerts as such shows give us the opportunity to interact directly with our fans. We also understand that some viewers are more interested in listening to songs than discussions. Personally, I also like to perform more than talking. So I will try to utilise the show-time by presenting more songs and less discussions,’ Partha added.
Fans will be able to request songs by dialing 8332509 and 8332754 while the show is being aired.
Partha Barua further informed that the band is prepared to release a new album soon. ‘We took time to release a new album that will live up to the reputation of the band. So we waited to produce some quality music to satisfy our fans,’ Partha Barua added.
A group of boys inspired by western rock music decided to form a musical band called Surela in 1972 in Chittagong. A year later the band was renamed Souls marking the first founding anniversary of the band and since then the troupe has released twelve albums.
Mukhorito Jibon, Mon Shudhu Mon Chuyeche, Ek Jhaak Paakhi, E Emon Porichoy, Keno Ei Nisshongota are some of the super hit songs by Souls. Led by guitarist and vocalist Partha Barua, the current line-up of the band includes Naseem Ali Khan on vocal, SK Ahasanur Rahman on drums, Mohammeed Maruf Hasan Talukder on bass guitar, Meer Shahriar Hossain on keyboard, and Tushar Ranjan Datta on percussion.
