Arguably, one of the most famous patriotic songs of all time, written by late Nayeem Gauhar and composed by Azad Rahaman. It was sung by Firoza Begum and Sabina Yasmeen along with a host of other singers and recorded at the EMI Studios in Karachi (Pakistan).
This song was recorded in 1970 before the War of Independence began in March 1971. Recorded at the EMI Studios in Karachi (in the then West Pakistan) to celebrate the victory of the people of Bangladesh (then East Pakistan) in the 1970 general elections, the song foreshadowed the impending assault on our country and people by the Pakistani regime. The song was on one side of a 45rpm record; on the other side was 'jonmo amar dhonno holo ma go'. Although this song was the first-ever song on 'Joy Bangla', it remained latent for 40 years. This beautiful song was written by Nayeem Gauhar and tuned by Azad Rahaman. Firoza Begum, Sabina Yasmin and others lent their voice to this historic song.
In March 1971 at the height of the civil disobedience movement in East Pakistan against the ruling military junta, this song invigorated the exploited people to fight for their political rights. It was played continuously on Television until the military crackdown on the 25th. The powerful message of the song continued to inspire freedom fighters and the general mass throughout the nine-month long Liberation War until freedom was gained in December. Lyrics: Fazle Khoda; Music: Azad Rahaman
