Suvro Dev, an illustrious Bangladeshi musician, has made significant contributions to the realm of modern romantic music. Born in Sylhet, he laid the foundation of his academic pursuits at Sylhet Government Pilot High School, passing the matriculation exam with flying colors. His academic journey led him to the University of Dhaka, where he attained his MSc in Biochemistry.

He also earned the distinction of being among the first Bangladeshi artists to feature in music videos produced by MTV.

Dev's contributions to the arts extend beyond music; his telefilm "Strir Potro" garnered the best telefilm award at the 2003 Uro Binodon Bichitra Awards.
