  1. state of bengal was born in east pakistan, pre independance, and hence present day bangladesh. He came from Bangladesh as a youngster before settling in the uk with his whole family.
    His music is very interesting, especially love his treatment of rhythm and beats. Hes worked with other british bangladesh artistes such as suzana ansar alongside artistes from all ethnics backgrounds in his work til date.

  2. Hi. Thanks for this clarification. The Wikipedia entry that I referred to mentioned that he was born in Pakistan; it didn’t specify “East.” I couldn’t find his exact date of birth, but I deduced that he had to be somewhere close to my age (considering he did DJ sets going back to about 1980), so of course, he was born before Bangladesh declared independence (in 1971).
