This week's program presented an intimate interview of Bangladeshi Nazrul Sangeet singer Yasmin Mushtari, recorded during her recent Canberra concert. Well known for her rendition of Poet Nazrul Islam's raga-based melody and ghazals, Yasmin Mushtari started training in music at the age of six in the Nazrul Academy and later became a disciple of legendary ghazal singer Mehdi Hassan. The beautiful songs played in the program were taken from Yasmin Mushtari's solo album 'Praner Melaye'. This week's program was produced and presented by Sheikh Lana.
