Polish band to dedicate song to CRPF jawans killed in J&K
New Delhi: Polish Jazz act `New Bone Quintent band` is in the country to perform as a band for the first time, with line-ups in Delhi and Jammu. They are likely to dedicate a song to CRPF jawans killed in a recent suicide attack.
The band is opening the 3rd edition of the International Jazz Festival here, which is hosting 14 bands from a total of 10 countries including India.
The festival beginning today at the Nehru Park here will be webcast live according to the Indian Council of Cultural Relations (ICCR), which is organising the three-day event.
"My compositions are very melodious and romantic and I hope with our music we can uplift the mood of the people, especially in Jammu where we are heading next" says Tomasz Kudyk, the lead member of the Polish band.
When told about the very recent attack on CRPF jawans in Srinagar, Kudyk said he would like to dedicate a song to them.
"If I have a choice I would like to dedicate the `Attonowa` song which is on the name of the street where I spent my childhood days," said the musician who plays the trumpet and flugelhorn.
Five jawans of the 73 battalion CRPF were killed and 10 other persons including four civilians were injured in a suicide attack by two militants on their camp in Bemina area of Srinagar on Wednesday.
