Gambhira is a type of song (originating in Chapai Nawabganj, in the Northern region of Bangladesh).[1][2] It is performed with a particularly distinctive rhythm and dance with two performers, always personifying a man and his maternal grandfather, discussing a topic to raise social awareness. This kind of song is also quite popular in Malda of West Bengal, India.
