Friends FM completes one year, celebrates with music carnival

Friend’s 91.9 FM, the radio initiative from The ABP Group, completed one year on February 28, 2008. The FM station has embarked on a three-day music carnival in Kolkata to celebrate its first birthday. The station aims to build a better bonding with its listeners through this music carnival.

The first day of the ‘Friends Music Carnival’ saw Rabindra Sangeet and folk performances by Suchitra Mitra, Susmita Goswami, Agnibha Bandopadhyay, Lopamudra Mitra, Kartick Das Baul and Dohar.

The second day was reserved for more contemporary fare. Modern Bengali songs were presented by Rupankar, Nachiketa, Subhamita, Raghab Chattopadhyay, followed by Hindustani classical music recitals by Ustad Rashid Khan, Kaushiki Desikan, Tejendra Narayan Majumdar and Anindo Chatterjee.

The Grand Finale would see performances by Bangla bands like Fossils, Chandrabindoo, Bickram Ghosh’s Rhythmscape and new talents like Eldorado and Phoenix. Music CDs and instruments would also be sold at stalls set up at the venue.
