Nagorik TV's musical show “Gaanwala”, hosted by popular composer-singer Tanveer Alam Shawjeeb, has been gaining popularity swiftly. Unlike many other TV shows, “Gaanwala” has an informal, homely setting and airs at 10pm on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
In response to query about the show, Shawjeeb said, “Gaanwala is a musical show where one guest artiste comes each night and shares their musical experience with the audience through me.”
On the show, both the guest and host sing solos and duets in a cozy musical environment. “It was the requirements of the producer that the show has to create an environment that is not so serious, yet come up with enjoyable musical moments that music lovers will like, which is why we always try to keep it friendly and modest. Selection of songs and their presentation are also casual and spontaneous,” said Shawjeeb.
A graduate in Recording Art Technology from Canada, Shawjeeb has emerged as a versatile singer and composer in the Bangladesh music scene. Since his return from Canada in 2006, he has composed music for a number of music albums, TV plays, documentaries, live shows, commercials and movies.
