Man of The Hour – There’s more to Shwapnil Shojib than meets the eye

Widely-known for his beautifully-sung covers of Rabindra Sangeet, Shwapnil Shojib has recently been making waves in international waters with his collaborations with Nikhita Gandhi and Priyangbada Banerjee. With all the makings of a star on the rise, Shwapnil Shojib is poised to reach new heights in the contemporary music scene here in Bangladesh.

What’s been going on in Shwapnil Shojib’s life recently? MWB hopped on a phone call with the musical sensation himself to find out.

You are well-known for your contributions to Rabindra Sangeet. What drew you to the genre in the first place?

I’d have to go back to my childhood for this, where my first foray into music was through my family members – my mother used to sing, my maternal grandfather is the well-revered poet Anwar Karim, my maternal aunt Lutfun Nahar Lata is a renowned singer as well, so I’d learn from watching them in their element. Once, at five years of age, I demanded to share the stage with my aunt who eventually gave in and handed me the mic, allowing me to sing a cover of Dilruba Khan’s “Pagol mon re mon keno eto kotha bole.” My performance was very well-received by the audience. Thus began my journey in music, over the course of which I was awarded the gold medal for folk music at two separate events: National Study Week and National Children’s Competition. At the time, I wasn’t particularly focused on Rabindra Sangeet, and regularly practiced folk songs, Bengali classical music, Nazrul Geeti. In 2007, I got wind of a Rabindra Sangeet music competition based in Bangladesh, and decided to sign up as a participant. My decision was met with snide remarks from individuals who deemed my expertise in folk music to be a disadvantage in singing Rabindra Sangeet.
