Neighbourhood orchestra now on a govt platform

Popular Kannada cinema music that offers a peek into the history of the film industry and an opportunity for local arti­s­tes to showcase their talent.

This describes, in a nutshell, a project under which orchestras, featuring hit songs from old and new Kannada films, will he held at different locations across the State. The State government is presently working out the modalities of the project. 

Neighbourhood orchestras of Kannada film songs, held during Ganesha festival and Rajyotsava celebrations, have always been popular among the people. The government is keen on tapping their popularity by officially organising such programmes at frequent intervals across districts.

The government has entrusted the information department with the task of working out an action plan for holding such programmes, official sources told Deccan Herald.

As an added attraction of the programme, narration of nuggets from the film industry, history of Kannada cinema and stories behind famous songs. Kannada cinema has a history of more than eight decades. The first Kannada film to be released in theatres was ‘Sathi Sulochana’ in March 1934. The information department is likely to talk to the representatives of the film industry for their participation. The programme will be entertainment based and will not have any competitive element, the officials said.

There are plans to utilise the platform to popularise and provide publicity to various schemes of the government.
