The journey started through three friends- Jon, Tony and Jahan with same taste & passion for music. When Black was formed back in 1999-2000, we were only in our early college days.We used to jam at regular basis whether we were performing in the gigs or not
- So, what’s been going on in the world of Black recently?
Well, although Black has had to reinvent themselves over time as their lineup changed, till today, Black stands strong as an individual band in Bangladesh. We have worked on five solo and 23 mixed album till date. Once again, we are set to bring a new wave with our upcoming album.
- Can you share your memories regarding LRB?
LRB has been a huge inspiration for our band from the very beginning. We don’t want to accept the fact that AyubBachchu is not with us anymore. When we were newcomers, he was always thereto encourage us. We were lucky enough to share the stage with AyubBachchu for couple of times. He will remain alive within us forever through his incredible songs.
- Whatsyour thought on Bangladeshi Band Music?
From Respected Azam Khan to newcomers, everyone has contributed in the decorous history of band musicindustry. Band Music broke the traditionalformula and recreated a new genre by assembling Eastern & Western music form. Bangladeshi band music is very advanced in comparison to neighborhood countries, which is very honorable fact for us.
