I take this opportunity to thank each and every contributor to make this dream a great reality, and solicit active support from many more to take this commuity initiative further!
The speciality of today’s edition is that we have THREE GENERATIONS of people performing 🙂
New this week
We have the privilege of hearing parents of our active contributors and soon intend to have a “Parent’s Special” programme to showcase the divine voices of our parents. To start off this endeavor we have Archana’s father, Shri Dinesh Kamath rendering his youthful voice and my Parents, Shri K. Ramachandra Pai and Smt. Sudha R. Pai showcasing their bhajans recoded at home. I would request each one of you to help your parents record and upload their voices for the Parent’s special.

Janapriya Yakshagana is a famous group in Mumbai with the distinction of having the colourful Yakshagana ballet (similar to kathakali, and is the official dance of Karnataka)in Konkani Language. The group has blessings from all our Divine Swamiji’s and has among its founders the Legend Shri Rama Nayak, the father of Udupi Restaurants of Mumbai.

Lokaabhiraam Maam is dressing up for his next show and will be up in a while.
nice one!! Glad to see Radio Idli gaining popularity! And a nice edition featuring the young and the old…
This is an excellent blog. Very funny “Ek ghadi Hassunu kaadi ” stuff and some very serious singing talent.. Keep up the good work you all.
I was awaiting a Bhajan from Ashwin,
Hope to hear it next time..
BTW the Songs from Nagesh’s parents has inspired some more people.
Well done again!! I have been regularly visiting this site and going through all the programs.
Excellent! You will surely get more coverage, because all your efforts are genuine. 🙂
Lokabhiraam did it again. So did Amit . I liked atharva too 🙂
Others were also good. Pravin da needs to record in silence, was I watching a movie in the background? otherwise the content was very good.
“Tanhayee” was good, but needs to adjust the mic with the song 🙂
Seeing all the enthu of all the people, I also wanted to do something. Even google couldnt find any talent suitable in me 🙂
Keep up the good work guys and gals!!!
archana : i think u hv some secret in ur comp 😛
atharv: >:D< >😀< >😀<
applause to all the people who sang!!
keep it steaming you all 🙂 🙂 🙂
hey great round of songs again!
Nagesh, now we know where you learnt singing!
Amit: good choice and good voice
Archana: you really sing good and now we know youve taken it from your father
PravinDa: Great use of various dialects of Konkani.. Need more such inputs!!!!!
