50 noted artists came together to sing a new and beautiful rendition of our national anthem on the glorious occasion of the birth centenary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the 50th anniversary of independence.
Initiated by The Information and Communication Technology division, the musical arrangement was organised by Kaushik Hossain Taposh, said a press release.
Rendered by TM production, the music video was shot outside the National Parliament House and the historic Sohrawardy Udyan.
State Minister for ICT Zunaid Ahmed Palak said, "Our ICT department decided to recreate the national anthem with the participation of fifty artists to commemorate the 100th birth anniversary of Bangabandhu and the 50th anniversary of independence.
