We are deeply blessed to have the consent and content from Shri Puttur Pandurang Nayak-Maam, one of the pioneers of Konkani Bhajans. Shri Vitthaldas Kamath and Shri Ramesh Pai of the Abu Dhabi Amchigele Samaaj, have taken the efforts to record, document and share with us excerpts from a lovely Bhajan Sandhya event at Abu Dhabi. I take the pleasure of thanking them and welcoming them as a part of the Radio Idli community. I would request them to support us throughout to keep us in touch with our brethern in UAE.


His compositions have been a great guide to music lovers and devotional singers alike in our Samaaj. Simplicity is indeed a magnificent characteristic that shines forth in Nayak-maam and his Music.


The young and humble team of Radio Idli bows to this and takes immense joy in sharing his performance with the Samaaj, online.
