About

London- based Visual Artist Saif Osmani presents a series of paintings and sketches which trace the history of Bangladesh as seen through the poetry and musical influences of Rabindranath Tagore, Kazi Nazrul Islam, Hason Raja as well as rural Baul singers such as Lalon Fakir to more contemporary fusion musicians here in the UK. The exhibition explores the role music plays in defining national identity and cultural formation.
