Houston Konkanis performed a dance to the song “Saath Chendi Chelyon” on Sunday, July 1 at Konkani Sammelan 2012 , held in Edison, New Jersey.
The performance was a very big hit. The theme of the song was about the professional life, society has adopted, without giving importance to the family. The wives were frustrated about the professional nature of their husbands.
The Konkani lyrics to the song were written and sung by Gurudath Kamath, Aarti Kamath, Ramesh Kamath and Aparna Kamath. The performance was directed by Pushpa Shenoy. The lyrics of the song were hilarious and enjoyed by one and all. Since the lyrics were in Konkani, it was well suited for Konkani Sammelan and showed how melodious Konkani songs can be.
This song was based on the Hindi song “Saat Saheliyan” from fim “Vidhata” (1982).
