Legendary singer, ageless music

The perceptible gap between the favourite songs of the youngsters and the older generation gets blurred when it comes to the legendary singer, Kishore Kumar.

Go to any pub or to any party, it is Kishore Da on everyone's lips, whether they are the songs of the joie de vivre or those oh-so-sad songs.

For close to three decades he has regaled the music aficionados, and through his contribution to the Hindi film industry he has become immortal.

To celebrate the 75th birth anniversary of the actor-singer, `Sangeet Yatra', a music company, is organising a `Kishore Kumar Ki Sangeet Yatra' on August 16 at the Ravindra Bharati here from 6.30 p.m. onwards.

The objective of the programme is to unearth new talent. Singers who had participated in the All India Radio and television would be there to entertain the audience and celebrate the function.

The organisation had started its talent search programme in March and pruned out the 59 finalists to 11. These new singers, too, would be performing at the programme to pay homage to the great singer. For further details, contact Bhaskar Krishnamuthy on mobile: 98483 09688.
