Rezwana Choudhury Bannya is a Bangladeshi singer. She is an exponent of Rabindra Sangeet, the songs written and composed by Rabindranath Tagore. In 2002, Bannya was awarded Ananda Sangeet Puroshkar for being the best female Rabindra Sangeet artist.
Bannya completed her initial training from Chhayanot in Bangladesh. In the interim, she had been admitted to the Bulbul Academy but her training there was cut short in 1971 by the Bangladesh Liberation War. At Visva-Bharati University, exponents such as Kanika Banerjee, Nilima Sen, Ashesh Bandopadhyay and Santideb Ghosh were her mentors.  In addition, she learned other forms of Bengali music such as the folk Kirtan and the classical Tappa.  Among instruments, she can play the harmonium and the esraj.
Bannya won Sangeet Samman Puroshkar from the Ministry of Culture, India in 2013.
