Musical Event Mohona 2017 To Bring Musicians From India and Bangladesh on One Platform


Mohona 2017-the confluence is an initiative by 87 Ward Residents’ Forum. Sayandeb Chattopadhyay is the convener of this musical event. The name Mohona means the confluence of two rivers. In this case, it is the confluence of music of West Bengal (India) and Bangladesh. Despite the border drawn, the language and culture between the two places is similar.

Drawing inspiration from such similar tastes in music and culture, this initiative has been undertaken to help the needy people in the area. Musicians from India and Bangladesh will be seen performing at this event. Some of the performers include Jojo, Lopamudra Mitra, Mehreen (Bangladesh), Avishek Basu and Vedatronic team.

The event is scheduled to take place on 27th January from 5.30pm onwards at Lake Road and Jatin Das Road crossing.
