“Bangladeshi musicians need to change their perspective on music in order to progress,” says Navid Imtiaz Chowdhury. He talked about the Bangladeshi music scene in general and his pedal company in a discussion with the Daily Our Time Team.
He says that although Bangladesh’s music scene has the potential to thrive and become something much bigger, we have to learn to be invested more in our music. For example, most Bangladeshi musicians, even the more successful ones are very reluctant to hire a crew dedicated to helping them forge a sound which often deprives us of live shows featuring good sound quality.
Navid mentions that the reason the international music scene is working out so well, is because artists are becoming more aware of how they sound and are relentlessly trying to improve themselves and Bangladesh needs some of that mentality in order to make sure we can succeed on an international level.
In addition to being a musician, Navid is also an entrepreneur who specializes in making effects pedals for guitars. He has his own line of effect pedals called Daddy’s Pedals and he explained his plans to prioritize the project and expand it accordingly.
