A concert to keep city clean


The auditorium of the Sri Sathya Sai International Centre, Lodhi Road, reverberated with the sounds of Indian music when Rini Mukherjee presented some of the most loved Bollywood compositions. In her lilting voice, the singer gave an enthralling performance at the Sixth Annual Cultural Conclave and Musical Concert - ‘Sur Sandhya’, which left the audience asking for more. 

The concert organised by Le-Rythme, an organisation promoting Indian music and dance, also saw performances by the dancers of Ganesh Natyalaya and Bengali band Kolkata Creations. The programme commenced with Rini Mukherjee’s performance who presented all time hit melodious songs of Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar and Kavita Krishnamurthy. Like Ek Radha Ek Meera, Shyam teri bansari pukare radha naam, Yeh ladka hai Allah and many more. 

In an hour-long performance Mukherjee regaled the audience with a Bengali number and Rabindra Sangeet also.  Thereafter, there were performances by the iconic dancers of Ganesa Natyalaya, a Centre of Classical Dance and Music run by Bharatanatyam exponent Saroja Vaidyanathan. Apart from this famous Bengali band Kolkata Creations also mesmerised the audience with their performance.

The organisers donated a cheque of Rs 75,000 to the URJA (United Residents Joint Action) South Delhi NGO for better improvement of CR Park roads.
