School of spiritual music

Nobopran Andolon is a cultural movement in Bangladesh that reclaims popular philosophical discourses known as Bhokti-Sufi-Boyati traditions. These cultural and oral knowledge practices persistently challenge various forms of hierarchical oppression such as caste, class and patriarchy. Farida Akhter and Farhad Mazhar support this movement by running a school of music for peasant children in Kushtia, the original home of Lalon Shah, a prominent 19th century composer of songs in this tradition. UNESCO identified this tradition as "a masterpiece of the oral and intangible heritage of humanity.
