1996 – present (22 years)
Shironamhin is a band from Bangladesh started their journey in 1996. They have developed their own unique style through blending of the popular western instrument like guitar, drum kit and keyboard with the traditional folk instruments like Bansuri, Dotara and Indian classical instrument like Sarod. Shironamhin effectively creates a very complicated hectic quality of lyrics by putting side by side contrasting allegory of urban myth, morose state of human soul and their expectation from life itself. Besides they paint ruthless landscape in the context of Lifescape of urbanity; they depict the rustic rural within a controlled yet personalized emotional content.
Shironamhin believes that a tune can only grow through crawling up the body of text and breed only within the ontological situation of human uttering. They also believe that only by using the proper rhythms of Bengali wording and through an extension of that rhythm it is possible to find a proper tune for a proper lyric. And probably this new understanding of music can change the common trend of Bengali band music culture which will offer a new era of communicative music.
Towards a new Fusion:
Fusion music is a common fashion in contemporary musical vocabulary. But this band do not accept the surface meaning of the word fusion as an orchestral presentation of some polarized musical instrument from different end of world, rather they consider the theme of fusion by philosophizing the term in a sense of mixing two or more contrasting Moods, Folk, Alternative, Rock, Classical, Metal. To them Fusion means synthesis of moods not instruments.
