The Versatile Javed Ali

17 August 2016, Manik Sabhagrah, Bandra, Mumbai


Manik Sabhagriha, Bandra witnessed an energetic and engaging evening filled with songs and live performance by the singer that left the audience wanting for more.

The evening of Aug 17 intended to felicitate noted senior instrumentalist, ace Guitarist Gorakh Sharma and two other prominent yesteryear musicians: Late Shashikant Kudalkar, noted Tabla player and Mohammad Rashid Khan, one of the most skillful Bulbul-tarang & Banjo player of our country.

Expectedly, the felicitation function for the three artistes was followed by a request for Gorakh Sharma to play the Guitar live on stage. It was amazing to see the ease with which the champion artiste quickly got ready with a different Guitar and master it to play the evergreen theme music of the film Karz.

The proceedings commenced with Javed Ali’s constant Endeavour to charge the audience and keep all involved continued with songs. The "ever welcome" presence of veteran comedian Johnny Lever coupled with his unbeatable delivery style and light-hearted jokes had the audience in splits.

A special thanks to associate sponsors Bank Of India and Godrej Properties, Radio Partner 92.7 big FM.

A well- thought and executed theme, demonstrated the power of golden melodies to attract and move souls.
