Biography

Bangladesh

Fuad al Muqtadir (Bangla: ফুয়াদ আল মুক্তাদির, born 1980) is a popular Bangladeshi composer. He is also known as New York Fuad. Mixing different genre of music with different languages is a common style of creating new music of the musician.

Fuad left Bangladesh for the USA in 1988 at the age of eight and started junior high school there. He was always on and off at the music music and finally formed the band Zefyr in 1993 with Richard Modhu, Himel, Shumon and Fred. They recorded several tracks and before disbanding in 1999, released the albums Maya 1 and 2, which became overnight hits within the New York residents Bangladeshi communities.

His first record, drifting away from his niche target group, was Re/Evolution. With the help of Sohel Aziz, keyboardist from the band Obscure, the album came out in collaboration with plenty of mainstream and underground musicians featuring 14 tracks with some great remixes and originals. Litu’s “Sylhoti”, Anila Naz Chowdhury’s “Jhilmil”, Armeen’s “Bhromor Koiyo” and the re-mixed track, “Mon Chaile Mon” became instant hits. This was a huge success and came out as one of the best selling albums of 2005.

In addition, Fuad’s Variation No. 25 in 2006 was the most creative record produced till date, according to his many fans. Later in 2006, two songs were added and the CD was re-released as Variation No. 25.2 jointly by G-Series and Aarshee. The tracks, “Nobina” by Poonam, “Nitol Paye” by Rajib/Fuad jointly and Bappa Mazumder’s “Kono Asroy” became over night hits and gave the compilation a massive success.

    He is talented, no doubt about that. But god he makes some awful music, plus I hate the fact that he uses auto-tune on every artists he works with. I'm not against auto-tune but he over uses it. I used to love 'Gopone' when it first came out but lost it after my computer crashed. Does anybody know where I can download the original version of the song? I'm sick of listening to the remix :@
