AN EVENING OF OLD SONGS : A musical evening with a cause dedicated to old songs
Last weekend, Sri Potti Sriramulu Telugu University was the venue for a musical event. Euphony, a group of music lovers — working towards retaining memories of past music by organising regular concerts of professional and up and coming artistes. The event had songs and programmes based on the pattern of A.I.R. Vividha Bharathi. Euphony also is associated with Aalambana, an organisation which runs a voluntary school for the betterment of slum and street children.
Artistes like Prasanna, Kumar Sarraju who can compose, sing and play music apart from writeing movie scripts and acting Another person worth being mentioned is Sridhar, a Traffic Inspector in Indian Railways, Sridhar is one of the most popular singer in twin cities. He is referred as ‘Man of many voices’ for his ability to mimic voices.
Besides Prasanna and Sridhar, the others who sang include, Ramakrishna, Sailaja, Vamsi, Namrata, Mir Mujeeb and Pallavi.
The crowd was a mix of young techies and seniors citizens. Parents also brought in their kids to introduce them to the idea of serving the needy. The gathering was very informal and the emcee, Amarender Dasari kept the crowd in good humour.
What Euphony needs to pay attention to is the tempo of the music. In some instances the music was overpowering and the accompanying chorus didn’t seem to pay too much attention to their tunes, notes and singing pitch.
Selection of songs like Allah Tero Naam, Aei Mere Zohr Zabi, Din Dhal Jae, Yeh Chand Sa Rohshan Chehra, Hum Kisi se Kam nahin etc made it a for a Suhana-mastana hot evening.URL:http://www.thehindu.com/thehindu/fr/2009/05/01/stories/2009050150820300.htm
