#Deora is a song sung by boatsmen for rhythm and energy during Nouka Baich – a traditional boat race, popular in the northern parts of Bangladesh and held during the Monsoon and Autumn seasons. The banks of Bangladesh explode with festivities in this time and Deora celebrates those ‘Mela’ across ‘The Land of the Rivers’.

The mix of folk genres like ’Shaari Gaan’, usually associated with physical labor, and ‘Jaag Gaan’ known for its motivational lyrics – the perfect combination for a sport that requires the participants to have quick bursts of intense energy for rowing their boat across the finishing line. Reflecting the vitality of the lyrics written by a boat racer Fazlu Majhi himself.

Pritom pays his ode to these colorful genres in his opening lines for the song. He is joined by the Ghaashphoring Choir, collaborating to create a fresh new sound for the young listeners of the music crazy nation.

The cherry on top is the immaculate performance by Islam Uddin Palakar. A pioneer in the genre of ‘Pala Gaan’ a folk performance that is inherited. The rich heritage of this genre usually requires elaborative theatrical performances where the actor takes in multiple roles – sometimes a man, sometimes a woman, and sometimes an inanimate object – to present stories to their audience. These performances can take up to 8 hours without a break. Deora tries to cement the different genres that make up the #RealMagic sound of Bangladesh with a new sound.
