To celebrate the intertwined spirit between climate, river, music and youth, the maiden concert of much-acclaimed musical initiative ‘Nodi Rocks’ is all set to enthrall the music lovers on Friday at International Convention City Bashundhara (ICCB) in the city.
Seven popular and up-and-coming bands will perform in this special concert including Cryptic Fate, Arbovirus, Chirkutt, Smooches, Ashes, Bangla Five, and F Minor.
These bands will perform the songs of the inaugural season of the ‘Nodi Rocks’ project which began in February of this year and focused on seven rivers across the country: Kushiyara, Padma, Sangu, Chitra, Pashur, Dahuk, and Buriganga.

“The journey of the 'Nodi Rocks' initiative started with the dream that 'there will be songs for each of the rivers of the country,’ along with the aim of creating awareness about climate and river protection,” according to the organizers.
‘Nodi Rocks’ is supported by the Embassy of Switzerland in Bangladesh and facilitated by Manusher Jonno Foundation. The project is being implemented by Salt Creatives.
The project was the brainchild of Sharmin Sultana Sumi, Chirkutt’s founding member-vocalist and Founder-CEO-Creative Director of Salt Creatives.
