Habib Wahid, better known as Habib, is a popular Bangladeshi composer and musician. He is notable for his fusion of traditional Bengali folk music with contemporary techno and urban beats. He takes folk music and remixes with popular music forms. He takes songs of composers like Hason Raja, Shah Abdul Karim, Amir Uddin and others and remixes the tunes with Hip-hop, reggae, rap and electronica.

Habib's father Ferdous Wahid was one of the trailblazers of Bangla pop music in the 1970s and 1980s. Habib started to pick up tunes on his father's keyboard from the time he was a little boy. Later, he studied music and audio engineering at the School of Audio Engineering in London. During this time, he had the opportunity to work with Asian Underground pioneer Nitin Sawhney among others. Habib conceived his first folk-remix album Krishno while he was still a student in London.

Since then, Habib has released two more albums: Maya (2004) and Moyna Go (2005). Both have been bestsellers. Habib has established himself as one of the most popular and promising young musicians in the country. In October 2006 Habib released another album: Shono.

Syed and the Talut Dance Company will be performing a track off of Shono! as a dedication to Habib Wahid.

Syed will also perform an amazing duet to Nawrin's newly released album Opare Shurjo Epare Ostachol.

Catch all the performances while you enjoy a bit of shopping and a taste of traditional Bangladeshi food.
