Chris Perry was one of the greatest musicians of Goa who was responsible to raise the standard of Konkani song to a high standard in all aspects. He wrote beautiful and meaningful lyrics and set them to innovative and exciting music. With his rich lyrics and music he created the singing sensation called Lorna. However, it is unfortunate that this great artiste of Konkani stage is not given his due respect. It is due to these reasons that Kala Mogi Candolim has produced this programme in memory of late Chris Perry- The Living Legend of Konkani Song & Music. All shows will commence at 7:00 pm sharp.
Numerous songs composed by late Chris Perry will be sung by popular voices of Goa namely Sonia Sirsat, Anthony San, Clarissa, Sucorro de Santa Cruz, Sonia Fernandes, Maria Cardozo, Shaik Amir, Irene Cardozo and Tomazinho Cardozo.
The music is set by Mukesh and it is directed by Tomazinho Cardozo.
The musical show is open for public. The seating will be on First Come First Serve Basis. All lovers of Konkani Song and Music particularly of late Chris Perry are invited to attend in large numbers.
