Konkani TV Canada is gearing up to stage an international and Canadian stars-studded “Stars Musical ExSTARvaganza” at the state-of-the-art Rose Theatre in Brampton on August 27, 2023. The event is in support of the humanitarian cause “Singing for Supper.”
Wilson D’Souza, the Supremo of Konkani TV Canada, spoke to Daijiworld Toronto and issued a clarion call to music lovers, stating, “Undoubtedly, it’s exciting news for Canadians residing in Ontario region and surrounding areas! The highly anticipated release of tickets got released on March 14, for the Mango community event at The Rose Theatre. It’s been over eight years since we’ve had the pleasure of hosting this event, and we can’t wait to see you there! But wait, it gets even better! Be sure to book your tickets early and take advantage of our exclusive early bird discounts. Don’t miss your chance to experience the incredible performances and festivities that await you at The Rose Theatre. And that’s not all – we’re thrilled to announce that our upcoming charity event in August 2023 is made possible thanks to the generous support of amazing organizations such as Konkan Organization Toronto, Canara World Foundation Inc, Canadian Canara Vision Inc, Tulu Koota Canada, Kannada Sangha Toronto, Grand River Kannadigaru, Konkani Catholics of Brampton, Ontario Konkani Association, and Radio Mango. We are grateful for their unwavering support and commitment to our cause. Join us in making a significant impact in our community!”
Wilson D’Souza also added, “Get ready for an unforgettable night of music with international stars and Canadian stars, including the incredible “Mothiyam So’r.” A fascinating musical chain of video songs, “Mothiyam So’r” (the chain of pearls) paid tribute to the Konkani Legends and was released by SBDM Productions in association with Konkani TV Canada in June of last year. This was the first of its kind in Canada, and it was created collectively by Mangalurean Konkani-speaking community musicians and singers based in Canada under the dynamic leadership of Canada’s Nightingale Sonia D’Souza-Monteiro. Canada’s Konkani Music Maestro Ashith Glen Pinto carried out the music arrangement and direction for this music album, while Joswin Pinto, the renowned Music Director of the Konkani Music world, carried out the Music Programming. The vocal recording was done at Glen Studio by Canada’s yet another talented musician Glen Saldanha.
The “Mothiyam So’r” video did full justice in giving a befitting tribute to the greatest Konkani songs composers and singers. The Legends portrayed in this video were the Late Wilfy Rebimbus, Meena Rebimbus, Melwyn Peris, the Late Mick-Max, Apolinaris D’Souza, Gration D’Souza, Lawrence Saldanha, Timothy Serrao, the Late Victor Concessao, the Late Henry Thomas D’Souza, the Late Jerome D’Souza, Henry D’Souza, Mike Simons, the Late P.H.Pinto, Oswald D’Souza, Claud D’Souza, Erie Rosario, and Joyce Ozario.
In this star-studded “STARS” musical program, Canadian music lovers will witness not only international performers like Ajay Warrier, Jacqueline Fernandes, and Elton Nazareth, but also Canadian stars of “Mothiyam So’r.” Renowned musician Joyson D’Souza will be the music director for this spectacular event.
