I bumped into good old State of Bengal in my Net searches because I had Bangladesh on my mind – but those thoughts are addressed better in the post after this. “State of Bengal” once did refer to a group, but nowadays, it just means this one guy – with a number of people here and there, like Rosina Kazi (the singer in this video) and Suzana Ansar.
The individual named State of Bengal spent most of his life in London, though Wikipedia tells us he was actually born in Pakistan. He picked up the name “State of Bengal” because he was inspired by a trip to Bangladesh, where he made connections with a bunch of musicians, etc. But what he does most, as far as I can tell, is a very UK-based blend of electronica and hip-hop.
I posted this video because it’s an anti-war video, and a moving one at that. The song’s interesting too – but, then, most of his are.
