Have you heard Dewana by Coke Studio Bangla? No? Drop everything and tune in, like now! Powerful, melodious, groovy and impactful, the song is also carrying forward a musical legacy. As aptly informed by the team in the bio on YouTube, “#Dewana is for the love and longing for the Divine. The writer, Gani Pagol, through his music has managed to transverse into the spiritual world of divinity. He started writing songs and practiced Qawwali music in Bangladesh. Bangladeshi Qawwali music has a unique sound stamp. While the songs are about devotion, the way they are sung are celebratory in nature. Thus the Bangladeshi form of Qawwali – Bangla Qawwali, is uplifting and funky.”

Beatboxing, drums, dotara, trombone, trumpet, bongos, guitar — Dewana has done justice to every musical instrument used in the song. The vocals by Fuad, Murshidabadi, Tashfee and Shuchona are par excellence and we loved Sunidhi’s ethereal voice spreading magic. Arnob, thank you for yet another marvel!
