A new collaboration - MEETING NAZRUL

In between touring YERMA, Amina Khayyam has been working collaboratively with Yerma’s vocalist Lucy Rahman and AKDC’s tabla-ist Debasish Mukherjee on a unique project - MEETING NAZRUL, featuring the songs and poems of Kazi Nazrul Islam – the giant of Bengali Literature and arts heralded Bangladesh’s poet laureate who from 1949 to his death in 1976 never spoke a word.  

Lucy’s haunting vocals set the expectation for the emotionally laden kathak movement of Amina Khayyam to bring to life the topicality of Nazrul Islam’s songs and writings.
