Immortal melodies of Laxmikant Pyarelal, one of the most popular musical duo ever produced by the Hindi film industry will be heard in Auckland next month.
Titled, ‘Suneheri Yaadein’ (Golden Memories), the programme is being orqanised by the Auckland based ‘Swar Sadhana Academy of Music’ in association with Ravi Shetty on Saturday, May 20, 2017 at Dorothy Winstone Centre, Auckland Girls Grammar School.
The group of singers includes Arun Khotkar, Ashish Ramkrishnan, Ekta Kumar, Guncha Singh, Joseph Jose, Kanik Mongia, Kanika Diesh, Kavita Lamba, Neel Patel, Ravi Shetty, Ritika Badakere, Sandhya Badakere, Siddhi Nigudkar, Srishaa Iyer and Vibha Trivedi.
Sandhya Badakere, who is organising the event, said that selection of songs of the masters posed a challenge.
“Laxmikant and Pyarelal have composed thousands of songs for films in their long career. Many of the songs are not only still popular but also contributed to the success of the films for which they composed. Among the songs that we have included in our forthcoming programme include Aan Milo Sajana, Bobby, Dosti, Imtihaan, Karz and Satyam Shivam Sundaram. A part of the proceeds will be donated to Parkinson’s New Zealand,” she said.
Tickets, priced at $20 are available at Yogiji Food Mart and Auckland Indian Sweets. Further details can be obtained on (09) 6270009.
