VASHI: A pro­gramme high­light­ing the cul­tural as­pects of As­sam will be held at Cidco au­di­to­rium in Vashi on Novem­ber 22.

En­try to the an­nual cul­tural pro­gramme, or­gan­ised by Anjuman-e-Milan, a char­i­ta­ble trust formed by As­samese res­i­dents in Mum­bai, is open to all from 7pm to 10pm.

Deva­sish Sharma, deputy res­i­dent com­mis­sioner of As­sam Bha­van, Vashi, said, “As­sam cel­e­brates Ron­gali Bihu, Magh Bihu, Ramzan Eid and Bakrid, among other fes­ti­vals. How­ever, not all peo­ple have the time to cel­e­brate it with much fan­fare. This pro­gramme aims to fill that void.”

“This pro­gramme is also an op­por­tu­nity for young­sters to understand what com­prises our cul­ture, be it the mu­sic or dance,” he added.

Renowned As­samese artistes will per­form at the cul­tural pro­gramme. “Anir­ban Das, a renowned singer from As­sam will sing ghaz­als. Das has per­formed at many tele­vi­sion shows and ra­dio chan­nels,” said Ravesh Naweed, a se­nior ex­ec­u­tive of a lead­ing com­pany, who is as­so­ci­ated with the pro­gramme.

“Jikir and Jari, tra­di­tional As­samese Mus­lim folk songs and dance, will also be per­formed by Az­imud­din Ahmed and his team, who have been spe­cially in­vited from As­sam,” he added.

“A qawwali and dance fu­sion by lo­cal artistes Sahera Ahmed and Juri Duara will be the high­light of the pro­gramme,” said Naweed.

“We will also fe­lic­i­tate the pride of As­sam Debajit Chang­mai and Am­rit Pri­tam at the cul­tural event,” said Parveez Alam, gen­eral sec­re­tary, Anjuman-e-Milan.

“Chang­mai has won sev­eral awards, in­clud­ing the IIFA Award for Best Sound Mix­ing, Na­tional Film Award for Best Au­dio­g­ra­phy, Star Guild Award for Best Sound Mix­ing. Pri­tam, too, has many awards, in­clud­ing the IIFA, to his kitty,” added Alam.
