BEMAC Unplugged: From Home to Here
November 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
“From Home to Here” is an enchanting program that guides the audience through a musical odyssey. Singers Rozana Azad and Avijit Sarkar will present a collection of melodies that delve into themes of separation, hope, happiness, and love, that are integral to the migration experience.
This program transcends being merely a celebration of diversity and cultural exchange; it is a profound exploration of the emotional journey of migration. The soulful music captures the spectrum of emotions, from the pain of leaving loved ones behind to the excitement and anticipation of discovering a new home. It offers audiences an opportunity to reflect on their own experiences and connect with the narratives being shared, as well as to appreciate the incredible resilience, strength, and beauty of those who have undertaken the journey from their original home to their new one.
WIdely acclaimed for their authenticity and melodious vocals, Rozana and Avijit, both originally from Bangladesh, share a mutual aspiration to honour their heritage and languages by sharing them with the diverse communities of their adopted homeland. On this occasion, they will be joined by the talented Rheanna Hassan, who provides a unique second-generation perspective as a migrant musician, sharing her emotions through popular Bangla, English and Hindi songs. Adding depth to this musical voyage is Steve Shankar, who accompanies the team on guitar and keyboards.
