The band came together in 1985 with a group of experienced musicians who had been performing across the country for over a decade. The founder members were Naquib Khan, Pilu Khan, Ehsanul Islam (Motto), Mamun, and Feisal Siddiqi (Bogey).
‘Renaissance’ has released four audio albums. Besides its original compositions, there is another side of the band. Since the start, Renaissance has been the Dhaka’s number one band playing its own versions, rich in improvisation, of Western rock/jazz/blues/reggae/soul classics. Renaissance enjoys the distinction of being highly successful in both the Bengali and English market segments of Bangladesh’s discerning music audience.
