Jibanananda Festival

Rich Mix, 35-47 Bethnal Green Road, London, E1 6LA from 5pm to 8pm, 20 February 2022


Poet Jibanananda Das (1899–1954) is widely revered as the purest poet of melancholic nature of Bengal and the most remarkable poet of post-Tagore Bengali literature. "His oeuvre is unremittingly autobiographical, narrating desultory journeys into a vulnerable yet stoic, companionless life".

As part of the celebration of his 123rd birthday of the poet, this event renders profound re-interpretation of some of his major works by prominent academicians through insightful talks.

Curated by poet Ahmed Kaysher, the event also will shed a new light on some of his phenomenal works through reading his works from English translation, playlet, presentation of unique music and dance based on his captivating lyrics.

Hosted by Saudha in partnership with the Gronthee, RadhaRaman Society and Rich Mix, the event features a few prominent scholars and the finest musicians, spoken-word artists and dancers.
