GSS UK Silver Jubilee Celebrations

“Birds of a feather flock together” is a very old proverb that we are all familiar with. Two wise men viz. Dr Sudhakar Rao and Mr Seetharam Kamath had many a discussion in 1985 in bringing together the flock of Konkanis in the UK and the first meeting for this was held in May in 1986 at Kingsbury in London. Since then the Sabha has been growing in strength, gathering Konkanis both young and old, from up and down the country and from all walks of life to celebrate our rich cultural heritage and enjoy festivals together.

Shrinivas and Brahmi Shenoy – Mumbai concert

Young and talented Shrinivas Shenoy was introduced to us sometime back by his father Guruduth Shenoy. We have five videos of yet another spectacular performance of Shrinivas and his Sister Brahmi at Shri Ram Mandir Wadala, Mumbai. Listening to his rendition, it doesn’t take time to guess that his gifted voice and talent has its origin in a family that has always been doing seva to the Lord with their voice. Shrinvas’ Grandfather was a Bhajan veteran and his mother is a gifted singer too. The stage of Wadala, Shri Ram Mandir has given its due support to encourage and catch the artist young.

We are glad to share with you two video recordings of the concert (part 2) for the joy of your divine ears!
