Bridging the Divides: Bangladesh Peace & Harmony Week 2017- Soul Search (3987)

In Bangladesh by


Music has long been an expression of people from different cultures around the world. The oldest artefacts that show people playing musical instruments are found in Asia and are around four thousand years old. Other archaeological findings suggest that different cultures around the world have always focused on their own special instruments and unique methods of playing them. However, no matter how much music may have differed in different parts of the world, it seems that music served a general common purpose: to bring people together. Different faiths have tunes that connects with soul and bring a common tranquil environment that brings peace in mind. With the songs, music the cultural coexistence of Bengal would be portrayed. Sufi, Kafi, Kirtan, folk, Marfati, Lalon, they have given the message of harmony. The love and peace that we perceive from tunes will be spread from the music and interpretation with music. Religion has a long-held role in the history of music. It comes to no surprise that music was widely used in temples and religious ceremonies throughout the world. The involvement of community in each culture has caused music to evolve in a way that is unique to each one. Gen Lab is also believing that; only music can bring all religions, cultures and virtues in an unparalleled tune. Inspired by the theme of cooperative coexistence we are going to organize a musical event under the name of “Soul Search” where a promising “Traditional Sufi Music” band will present some authentic Sufi, Boul & Marfoti songs and moreover they will discuss the beauty of religious diversity and coexistence of different culture.
