Azam Khan, The PopGuru of Bangladesh

Azam Khan with L.R.B
Azam  Khan, the man who first started Bangla Pop & Rock songs in Bangladesh. He is  a legend of Bangladesh. All the modern pop & rock bands follow the trace of Azam Khan and reach their lastest position. He is the pathfinder of the modern music culture.

Azam Khan a.k.a Mahbubul Haque Khan at first  founded a band called Uchcharon in the earlier 1971s. And the band members were Azam Khan, Fakir Alamgir, Ferdous Wahid, Firoz Shai, Najma Zaman and Pilu Momtaz. But that time, it was not easy. But they did not stop their work and continued their project.

Azam Khan's WordsAzam Khan  was a Freedom fighter in Sector 2 under late Brigadier Khaled Mosharraf and fought against the Pakistani army in the Liberation war of Bangladesh in 1971. After the war, he introduced an energetic brand of music. His first concert in television was broadcasted in 1972 in Bangladesh Television. His popular tunes included  "Rail liner bostite","Ore Saleka, Ore Maleka", "Jibone Kichhu Pabona Re", "Ami Jare Chaire", "Ashi Ashi Bole Tumi", "Obhimani", "Hei Allah Hei Allah Re", "Alal O Dulal" etc.
Man is mortal, but some are immortal who lives in the heart of the other peoples after their death. Azam khan is one of them. He is no more but his songs gives us inspiration to fight with our life and our society. Azam Khan died on 5 June 2011 at 10:20 pm in Dhaka CMH hospital at age 61. He was suffering from oral cancer which had spread to his lungs and on that day we lost our Pop Guru. We should remember his name with most respect.
