Popeye is a Bangladeshi music project that has been active for a decade. They do not perform in concerts, nor appear on television, and cannot be heard on the radio. Yet they have quietly garnered a cult following among rock-fusion lovers in Bangladesh over the last few years. In an exclusive interview with Dhaka Tribune Showtime's Faruque Ratul , the members of the project reveal details of their journey and the obstacles they have had to overcome. Talat: It was not something we thought about too hard. When the time came to name the band, we did not want to follow the trend of having the band named after just one of its members, unlike Bon Jovi, Dave Mathews Band, and many others we see in the international arena. The idea was to come across as a single entity, yet have the sound and aesthetics of a conventional band. Raffan: We met through a mutual friend.

Joan Baez - Song of Bangladesh Lyrics
Amnesty International released a music video today on the occasion of International Day of Education to make an appeal to the people in Bangladesh and around the world to support education for all children in the Rohingya and host communities in Bangladesh. Bangladeshi hip-hop lyricist and musician Mahmud Hasan Tabib and child artist Rana Mridha, who became popular on YouTube for their songs promoting education of underprivileged children in the country, lent their voices to the song.
