'1960 ki Lata' at Mumbai's Ravindra Natya Mandir on 12th June, 2015. The concept was unique in its own as there was a variety of songs and many well-known faces from the music industry became a part of this evening.

Program took off with an enchanting sound of Shehnayi which assured the audience that they’ll never forget these wonderful three hours. This program included the songs of all the significant music direstors of the decade 1960.

Pyarelalji was not only present in the show but also shared his words of wisdom with the audience. Legendary musicians such as Kersi Lord, Kishore Desai, Homi Mullan and Vijay Indorkar honored the show with their presence.

Continuing the Swar Aalap ritual two talented musicians Chintu Singh (Rabab & Guitar player ) and Girish Vishwa (Percussionist) were awarded with Swar Aalap's 'Young Achievers Award'.

Almost everyone's favorite comedian Jonny Liver shared a few words with the audience and also entertained them with his brief comic performance in style. Program came to an end with a very emotional and patriotic song written by Pradip, 'Aye Mere Vatan ke Logon'. This song did wonders when played on the guitar strings of Chintu and Shehnayi dhun of Dhumal. The artiste who gave a memorable performance were Raina Lahiri, Soumya Verma, Sarvesh Mishra and the host Yunus Khan.
