KONKANI MUSICAL FIESTA 'Hem Tanchea Ugddassak Korat’
KONKANI MUSICAL FIESTA
'Hem Tanchea Ugddassak Korat’ on June 5
Bahrain: Bahrain Goans, promoting football and konkani programmes among the Goan community of Bahrain are all set to create a musical fiesta at the indoor auditorium of Pakistan Club on June 5. Their forthcoming event titled ‘Hem Tanchea Ugddassak Korat’ (Do this in memory of them) is a musical show of songs of admired konkani artistes of yesteryears such as Alfred Rose, M.Boyer, Remmie Colaco, Jacinto Vaz, H.Britton, Mendes Bros, Wilmix, Bab Peter, S.Lemos, Rita Rose, Ophelia, Antonetta, Lorna, etc.
The show is arranged and produced by G. R.Crasto.
Crasto, a freelance journalist is a popular figure in the cultural and social fields among the Goan community of Bahrain. Crasto is a regular contributor for several years to the Gulf-Goans e-Newsletter as well as Konkani publications in Goa.
He has won several awards for his works in Bahrain as well as back home in India.
‘Hem Tanchea Ugddassak Korat’ is a collection of Konkani songs, some dating back to 1953. "Most of the popular old songs of topmost konkani stage artistes are hardly to be heard these days, as they are not available in CD or DVD formats," said Mr. Crasto, who has put up an enormous effort in compiling the lyrics and music of these songs. There are inquiries from konkani music lovers all over the world for many of the super songs of bygone years. Konkani music lovers in Bahrain will have a chance to enjoy these songs rendered by local artistes with recreation of original music by the local musicians. The show is a tribute to konkani artistes who have left their indelible mark on konkani music and are credited for taking konkani language around the world by their contributions.
Comedian Jr. Luis will provide comedy skits inbetween the songs. The show at Pakistan club begins at 8.00 pm and tickets priced at BD: 2/= are available at World Greetings and Mangalore Store.
