Local Sydney artists pay tribute to great composers of India

By Manju Mittal

A Tribute to the great composer’s musical concert was a splendid evening on October 20, 2018 at Pacific Hills Christian Hall, Dural organised by E3 Events. This has been the most delightful evening I have had in years as I sat mesmerised by the local talented singers who transported us to another world.

The event commenced with a Bollywood hit number ”˜Ek do teen’ by Chriasmita with her very fresh and sweet voice. Followed by Dilip Bhave ”˜Sanso ki zaroorat’ from movie ”˜Ashiqui’, he entertained the audience with his beautiful voice and he sang another old hit duet song with Khushboo ”˜Tumhe apna banane ki kasam khayee hai’ from movie ”˜Sadak’.   It was an interesting choice and they captured the audience’s attention with their vocal brilliance, with such an exciting, passionate opening, romantic mood was set for the night.

Another song I really enjoyed was ”˜Mere dil mein aaj kya hai’ by Shailesh who sang beautifully, I don’t remember how many times I have listened to that song of Rajesh Khanna and every time it has a new flavour. I can recollect the nostalgia it brings. Sydney’s well known singer Mintu’s solo song ”˜Main shayar to nahi’ was just amazing. He has been conjuring up magic with his songs  enthralling his fans.

Harmit started off to a thundering applause with the soft romantic number   ”˜Nazar na lag jaye’ this song has an emotional  romantic quality and it was time to travel down the memory lane, going back to the 70s. He performed another hit song with Merina ”˜Maine pyar tuhmi se’ and treated us to the hilarious impressions of Ajay Devgan and Madhu from the movie ”˜Phool Aur Kaante’.

Vishal’s solo song ”˜Dil jigar nazar’ was hilarious and he made female audience sing along as they clapped as eager participants. Khushboo came on the stage with the soft romantic number ”˜Dil hai ki manta nahi’ she also sang few other memorable numbers.

While the audience had anticipated singing talents, the magic of live Saaz band was just brilliant. Highlight of the show was tribute to Sridevi song ”˜Hawa hawai’   by Merina, she did fitting justice to the song of Kavita Kishnamurthy.

Equally hauntingly hit numbers were the duets ”˜Ek haseena thi’ and ”˜Dil ne yeh kaha hai dil’ by Shailesh, Chriasmita and Khushboo. The evening ended with song ”˜Jumma Chumma’ and ”˜Pardesi pardesi jana’ by Dilip, Chriasmita, Shailesh and Merina, the audience sang along as the performers engaged the audience.

Whole event was conducted very gracefully by Emcees Jazeel Mistry and Prerna Nickey Sehgal. This event was very different from the other concerts I attended in the past, what I found most moving about the evening was singers made the performances very entertaining from the audience’s perspective. Another unique thing about live performances is that it is interesting to watch when a singer successfully carries out something he or she has worked very hard at perfecting. One can notice the satisfaction on their faces which I sof course due to the response from the listeners.

Great audience and good food are the ingredients for a memorable evening, well  the food stall from JNG Catering serving delicious pakoras, chai and chhole, Rice at reasonable filled the hungry stomachs.  E3 Events presented delightful evening ”˜Tribute to the Great Composers’ and thus gave Sydney an evening to remember for a long time.
