Munasib, lit by a spotlight, sits on the ground in a purple room. They wear a wide-brimmed hat that obscures their eyes.

Your favourite artist’s favourite DJ, Munasib combines baile funk with local hip-hop, alte cruise with amapiano, and traditional Bengali music with experimental trap. Keeping company with burgeoning local talent and sharing stages with international superstars, each smoothly unpredictable transition reflects multiplicity and a journey through a cultural abundance.
