|view from my house, dhaka monday am, feb 2012|
they were standing on the rooftop. two guys, brushing their teeth. hindi pop is floating all over dhaka.
the music was loud, really loud. it was 8 am.
the eve and the night before there was a wedding pre- or afterparty. not sure. just know there was music, some lights, on a rooftop, somewhere close by dhanmondi, street 7 maybe. the music was a mix between electronic and western pop. the whole night. but not in the morning. the music in teh morning came from the guys building. they were using the moment of time, i thought.
in dhaka you don't have public music, please no clubs. they have to hid in 5 star hotels. otherwice no way or the police will arrive. dhaka is a muslimic country. music is not allowed.
weddings after- and preparties are huge. they last long and people just wait for them. one reason is fun the other is music. in dhaka music is officially not really accepted.
