Tanjina Islam Trisha , a student of Art Marketing from Atlanta cherishes her cultural roots in Bangladesh , a country she left about two and half years ago. Although professionally Trisha looks forward to associating herself in the area of art marketing , perhaps with an art museum , her interest lies in music , deeply embedded in her thoughts.
Her journey in music started with the inspiration of her mother when she was just a toddler. At the age of four only , she started learning vocal music at Geetayon (Shotto Shaha Sangeet Niketan). She did a two-year vocal course from Bangladesh Shishu Academy. In Chhayanaut, she also took vocal lessons in Nazrul’s Songs from renowned singers like Shumon Majumder, Khairul Anam Shakeel, Shaheen Samad, Anoop Bodruya, Shumon Chowdhury and many more. Beside all these institutions, she learned Indian classical music from her Guru Shatindra Nath Halder for almost 15 years.
In this exclusive interview with VOA Bangla Trisha talks about understanding Bangla music by the members of her own generation and emphasizes on the need for excellence in music.
