Brishti – Azizul Abedin

1

From neighbouring Bangladesh arrives singer, songwriter, poet Azizul Abedin who found music was his passion during his youth, and played the harmonica and acoustic guitar, before diversifying into other instrumentation during recording. While he sings in his mother tongue, Bengali, the sum of his past – including studying in Liverpool – culminates in his composition, “Brishti”, which finds Azizul effectively utilising the spoken word, with mainly a keyboard playing in the background, to pay tribute to the learned wisdom of nostalgia and the innocent vulnerability of youth. Wonderfully crafted, and an unlikely hit song from an artiste who certainly tilts in favour of being a poet than a performer.
