Baba Maa'r Jonno, a song composed and sung by Minar Rahman and written by Asif Iqbal, was released yesterday afternoon on the Gaanchill YouTube channel. Imraul Rafat has directed the music video for the song, while Sajid Sarker has done the music arrangement. Tawsif Mahbub has acted in the music video.
Speaking to The Daily Star about the concept of the song, Asif Iqbal says, “This song is an ode to parents everywhere. It is about how any difficulties that children go through affect parents.” He further adds that with this song, the team also hopes to inspire youngsters against matters like drug abuse. The song has a folk flavour with many spiritual themes in it.
Asif Iqbal, who has previously done songs like Oi Akasher Taray Taray, a song for mothers, and Chele Manushi Bayna, a song for fathers, says that Baba Maa'r Jonno is the first song he has done for both mothers and fathers. “The message I want listeners to take away from the song is that one should love their parents and work hard to make them proud,” he says.
