Turkish Embassy in Dhaka has celebrated the essence of Bangladeshi cuisine and music with a musical soiree and dinner at the Turkish Residence.
The ‘musical encounter’ was part of a series of 'encounters' or engagements in different categories organised by the Embassy and initiated by Turkish Ambassador to Bangladesh Mustafa Osman Turan.
The evening was a means of appreciating the food and music of Bangladesh and also showing a glimpse of it to those who are not as familiar with either.
The event held on Friday was preceded by other similar chapters as culinary encounters and Sufi encounters as a means to fortify the affiliation between Bangladesh and Turkey through meaningful experiences.
The programme featured classical recitals of sarod and tabla, followed by renditions of songs of Rabindranath Tagore.
The menu had a range of flavourful Bangladeshi dishes, including mutton kacchi and wrapping up with the comfort of traditional sweets.
