The Chhayanaut Sangeet Vidyatan (Bengali: ছায়ানট) is an institution devoted to Bengali culture, founded in Bangladesh in 1961. As in the case of many similar organizations, it was established during Pakistani rule in Bangladesh to promote and nurture the cultural and musical heritage of Bengal. Every year, Chhayanaut arranges a big program in order to celebrate the Pahela Boishakh, the first day of the Bengali new year.[1][2][3][4]
