Sharmin Sultana Sumi assumes the roles of lyricist, composer, and musician within the musical ensemble known as ‘Chirkut’. She consistently made appearances on the global platform to represent the nation through musical performances. The artist above has been invited to an international music conference in Norway.
Professor Daniel Norgade from the prestigious University of Adjer in Kristiansand, Norway, has invited Sumi to take part in the conference. In addition to his presence, music specialists hailing from various regions across the globe will be in attendance at this conference.
According to Sumi, the country has had its own band perform Bengali songs for the past 21 years, and she has been consistently involved in the international music scene for the past 11 years. It is a remarkable opportunity to enlighten the global audience about the diverse repertoire of songs from Bangladesh, as there is an increasing interest in listening to our music in great depth. The global landscape encompasses a vast expanse that surpasses our initial perceptions, offering diverse employment prospects for individuals across several domains. Seizing the opportunity to represent one’s nation on a global platform is an issue involving peace, honour, and pride.
During this ten-day event, Sumi will engage in three sessions to provide a presentation, deliver a speech, and discuss with the university’s students. In addition, she will discuss her experiences in the realm of music as a female artist and address a range of music-related topics.
In addition to engaging in live performances within the nation alongside the ‘Chirkut’ ensemble, Sumi has previously participated in several music conferences held in India, Sri Lanka, Norway, and Portugal.
