Music concert at the Goa Velha

Music concert at the Goa Velha
Dec 3, 2009 evening saw a very interesting music concert at the Goa
Velha church grounds.

Everyone on stage was into rendering Konkani music: local artistes,
Fado singer Sonia Shirsat, the guitar-strumming journalist Sigmund de
Souza. The lady with the impressive stage presence and powerful voice,
Marushka Rebello. So was The Saskia Laroo Band (with her Dutch and
American players) and Harikumar described as "one if the most exciting
violinist in the country today."

Here are some photographs from the event:
