Khiyo BD Album Launch + Day of Bengali Festivities

Get ready, we’re back!

As you may know, our singer Sohini Alam has been touring with dancer/choreographer Akram Khan‘s show Until the Lions, so we haven’t gigged as much lately. Now, we’re coming back with a bang!

It’s summer and we’ve teamed up with the award-winning Karamel London N22 to bring you a day of Bengali festivities on 30th June to celebrate the release of our album in Bangladesh.

What does that mean?

Khiyo’s self-titled debut album was released by ARC Music everywhere but Bangladesh, but from 30th June, Bangladeshi fans can listen to tracks from the Khiyo album exclusively on Radio-Foorti. We’re starting the day with a Facebook live show for our Bangladeshi people. You can catch it right here on our Facebook main page at 5.30pm, which is 10.30pm in Bangladesh.

For London fans, we’ll be at Karamel from 5pm for the live stream, and then we’ll play a live two-set gig especially for you. Happy hour is from 5-8pm, which means buy-one-get-one-half-price on drinks, and there’ll be a vegan Bengali buffet. If you haven’t been to Karamel yet, here’s your chance to visit this vibrant North London venue in the former Chocolate Factory.

Be one of the first to catch our new material and come say hello on our home turf. There’s more exciting news to share, and the announcement wil be part of this event. No tickets, so just show up. We can hardly wait to see you all again.
Mad love,
Khiyo.
