Musical soiree to remember

Music Magic

Music is that magic potion that lifts one’s mood, drives away the blues and infuses one with hope and  desire to face all challenges with a smile.

Metrolife found itself drawn in one such magical moment at the recently held Winter Fantasia, a music night by Viva Divavos, a Delhi-based group of talented musicians, at Epicentre, Gurgaon. Viva Divavos is the newest and most versatile ensemble group that sets the crowd grooving with its Broadway, contemporary and light opera songs.
The group includes India’s best known lyric/dramatic soprano Situ Singh Buehler who has sung in 11 languages and specialises in many genres of vocal music as Oratorio, Lieder and Opera arias.

Other lead singers include Ashwati Parameshwar, Jyotsna Laroiya, Mezzo, Catherine Barbier Prakash, Prabhat Chandola, Toshanbor Nongbet and Bhanu Sharma. Their superlative musical act left the crowd asking for more.

The singers mesmerised their fans with compositions such as Edith Piaf’s If you love me really love me, Puccini’s Quando M’en Vo, O Mio babbino Caro apart from the other melodious jazz numbers and solo performances. They set the hearts racing with their musical prowess and the audience cheered, clapped and sang along with the band. People from all walks of life gathered to enjoy the performances of the
music maestros.

One of the singers, Jyotsna Laroiya spoke to Metrolife about her own singing passions and the musical journey of the group. “We have been singing for a long time, but this group is just a little old. Many singers were there who are actually good and can entertain audience but a few of us came together and became a part of this show,” says Jyotsna.

“I used to sing from my college days in Bombay. But then I left singing because I was not in the country for many years as I was working with British Airways. But I am happy as I am again singing. Singing is one of my passions and other is organising shows”, shares the singer.

Jyotsna feels that “People should support western music. I want to tell all of you that so much can be achieved through music. We again have a show on  February 8 at Baha’I House of Worship, Bahapur, Kalkaji,” says the singer urging everyone
to be part of her next musical event.
