Bengali New Year Day 'Jalsa' Again At Basushree

Once upon a time, there used to held Jalsa (musical function) on the
morning of Nabo barsho (Bengali new year's day) at Basushree cinema
hall of Kolkata. Eminent singers of golden era such as Hemanta,
Sandhya, Shyamal, Arati, Dwijen, Nirmala, Dhananjoy Pratima, Tarun,
Akhilbandhu used to gather there to sing. Uttam Kumar was a regular
guest of that function. Since the death of Mahanayak the function was
postponed.
This year, it would again be a joyful revival of that function at the
same place, same day. And the artists will be Dwijen Mukherjee,
Purnodas Baul, Arati Mukherjee, Nirmala Mishra, Jatileshwar Mukherjee,
Haimanti Shukla, Banashree Sengupta, Indraneel Sen, Sriradha
Bandyopadhyay and many more.
