The world is looking at Bangladesh as more than 400,000 Rohingyas have come to take refuge here. They have come with only what they could carry and often that is only the clothes they are wearing. It is not possible to look on their plight and not feel sympathy or the want of doing something to help. Muzikraft will be accepting donations of whatever you can spare.
Shalwar Kameez (ready made)
So, much is needed and I admit this a new undertaking. We will be working with other charity groups to ensure the proper distribution of donations.
This Friday, September 22nd, Muzikraft is organizing a charity festival to benefit Kurigram flood victims. Donations of money, clothing, and other needs will be collected and their women farmers will be selling fresh organic produce. Details are available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01619099915. Thank you.
You know I have a few loves that I miss a lot. Driving to work listening to #ElvisDuran on NYC’s #Z100 in the morning used to be one. Now, I live to listen to the show during my walks in the evening “live”. Thank you #iHeartRadio! I enjoy the pranks, #GregT’s Topic Train and all the fun that the crew has throughout the show. The days that I miss the “live” show (Life happens) lead me to the replay channel on #iHeart Radio. Simply the best.
Last night was one of those days, but it was a good one. Wes “DIPLO” visited with Elvis and though I missed it the first time I was thrilled to pieces when I heard him. As you may recall, DIPLO came to Dhaka in April 2017. So, last night for me was “That Day When DIPLO was interviewed on my Favorite radio show! It was totally awesome for me.
So, if you missed it or just want to see it, here’s the video of the interview where he talks about upcoming possible collaborations, new artists that he likes and more. So for all the DIPLO fans out there, here is DIPLO on Z100’s Elvis Duran’s Morning Show:

Last May my daughter decided to partner with a friend of hers from New York to bring a well known musical performer, DJ, EDM Producer to Dhaka. I joined with her, but there were conflict as her friend was expat Bangladeshi who had grown up in the UK and USA and was trying to do an event the way he does them in the U.S. and not understanding it doesn’t work the same way in Bangladesh. Finally after struggling with this for a while, I suggested to my daughter that if her friend’s company isn’t investing anything in the event (and expecting to receive the profits) and only contributes instructions then we should form our own company and do it here ourselves.
Shortly after this she met a new “friend” here in Dhaka who wanted to work with us. This “friend” caused more problems and while we tried our best working together through our first event in November – an exhibition, it was clear it wasn’t meant to be.
In late July or early August my son suggested bringing Major Lazer to Bangladesh. I added this to my list of ‘possibilities’ and emailed their management company along with several other suggested groups. Just a blind mail to the info@…. from their website. Much to my suprise, they replied and many emails later it was confirmed that Diplo was coming to Bangladesh.
Many people are now coming out and making claims that they brought Diplo, I would suggest seeing the proof before believing in them.
#Oomph Bangladesh and #Muzikraft worked with #eCube Entertainment (as our execution partner). #eCube did not bring #Diplo, although we appreciate all their help in this event. Diplo was brought only by #Muzikraft Events and #Oomph Bangladesh exclusively. The event was bannered under only Oomph Bangladesh to avoid confusion and #eCube took the lead for most of the approval, liaisons, ticketing and event organization. Muzikraft and Oomph worked with the US Embassy and government officials when and where necessary.
There are many things in hindsight that could have been done differently or better and we hope to bring other artists in the future. For now we are focusing on local events only. Should there be anyone with an inquiry regarding this, contact us via our contact page on either this website or Oomph Bangladesh’s site.
I don’t know about you, but I’m excited!! Just three days until this awesome event hits the stage. We know we’ve been skimpy on details, but it is going to be an amazing night with live performances from some of the best EDM artists Dhaka has to offer with a never been seen performance by DIPLO himself!
Watch out for Bedheadz featuring Samin Al-Sabah who recently released their first video for “And You Know”. If you haven’t heard it, check on music streamers like Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music and more. Of course, Bedheadz also has the video on their Youtube Channel, too. Obviously, this Grammy winner can’t wait to take to the stage here in Dhaka.
Tanzil is also a great one to watch. You can see is podcast performances on eCube’s website.
Salman – Another up and coming awesome EDM artist.
And much more is in store for you Dhaka on April 6th.
In another day, we will be telling you all where this “first in Bangladesh” event occurs. More will come we are certain of that. We are already speaking with KSHMR and R3HAB from Muzikraft and Dead Mau5 from our partners’ side. Stay tuned and make sure you are registered and have your tickets for April 6th.
