Konkan Kogull Sings 'Golden' Song as United Youngsters Turn '50'
by Florine Roche

March 19, 2009
Mangalore

Fifty years of singing has not withered his fervor for singing Konkani songs and he vows to compose and sing till he is able to do so.  There is a kind of quiet earnestness that is transparent and touching as one speaks to this doyen of Konkani songs, Wilfy Rebimbus, popularly known as “Konkan Kogull” to his numerous fans. As a poet, composer, singer and story writer, credit goes to him for single-handedly upholding the pride of Konkani by compositing songs with the true essence of Konkani culture at a time when Konkani songs with popular Hindi tunes was the norm. 

Obsessed by a mad urge to compose and sing Konkani songs and write plays at a young age, Wilfy had to struggle for nearly 20 years to make a decent living out of Konkni music.  The struggle even forced him to bid adieu for Konkani music in frustration and in 1973 he left everything to go for a job away from Mangalore. But he could not stay away from his passion and within a year he was back doing what he knew best – composing, singing and writing plays.  Credit goes to him for being the first Konkani composer and singer to make career out of Konkani music in Mangalore.   

Enduring Tough Times: 

The initial struggle notwithstanding, on the occasion of completing 50 glorious years of composing and singing, satisfaction is writ large on his face for whatever ‘little’ he has been able to accomplish.  “The initial years were very tough mainly because music lovers were used to Konkani songs attuned to Hindi songs. There was resistance from established singers who provided such music.  It took nearly 5 to six years to change the taste of the people”, Wilfy recalls.  His moment of glory came when people openly rejected the performers singing Konkani songs in popular Hindi tunes.   

In fact, the rise of Wilfy also marks the rise of musical group United Youngsters, the banner under which Wilfy – the star was born.  Wilfy began composing and singing Konkani songs in 1956 at a young age of 14 and in at 15 he wrote his first drama “Paishanso Sounsar” and staged it through St Joseph’s Natak Sangh. It was the sodality group in church that provided him the initial push to showcase his talents by composing and singing Konkani songs.  However, he began his long but chequered journey of music career through United Youngsters, which was formed in 1959.  This year marks the golden jubilee celebration of Wilfy’s singing and the establishment of United Youngsters, which is nothing but a milestone as far as Konkani songs are concerned.

It All Began at Home: 

Wilfy was born on April 2, 1942 as the sixth and last child of Landeline Rebimbus and Magdeline Mendonca in Mangalore. Wilfy had a favorable atmosphere at home to nurture his talent.  His father was a Malayalee, who used to sing Malayalam paddanas and other songs which had profound impact on a young Wilfy. “We used to sit together and sing some popular songs after evening prayers as there was no other form of entertainment”, he points out.  From his childhood Wilfy was inspired by Roman stage plays based on Biblical themes staged in and around Jeppu every year.  His elder brother wanted Wilfy to study and take a career and have music only as a part time hobby.  But despite his Herculean efforts his brother did not succeed in convincing Wilfy the need to have a career other than music.  

Having realized the need to have a forum United Youngsters Konkan Cultural Association was established on October 18, 1959, by a group of 15 enthusiastic youngsters who were bound by their common love for sports, Konkani songs and stage plays and Wilfy’s talent guaranteed a facile entry. Initially it comprised non-Catholic members and hence the commonly acceptable name United Youngsters.   “Ixtagatecho Baandh” was the first play where Wilfy was able to play some songs to the tunes of Hindi songs.  Playing songs during stage change over was a norm those days to keep people entertained.  But the urge to compose Konkani songs was intense and the opportunity came in the form of stage play “Poxanho Sounsar” played at Jeppu Club and the music was provided by United Youngsters.  Wilfy succeeded in putting his own songs as he had no compunctions to placate anyone. 

United Youngsters slowly withered as members left the place for greener pastures and for two years Wilfy was left all alone except for one member. However, a group of youngsters came to Wilfy and promised to provide music and United Youngsters was revived.  “People changed, the music party changed but the name was retained”, says Wilfy recalling those struggling yet challenging days.  By then Wilfy had slowly emerged on the scene and had established his popularity.  Between 1959 and 1970 Wilfy composed songs, wrote plays and provided music for more than 300 Konkani plays in Mangalore and Mumbai.  

Popularity however did not fetch him any income and on the suggestion of Fr William D’ Silva, it was decided to print a book of his poems. But Wilfy did not have copies of any songs he had written. Thanks to his fans Richie Lasrado and Blaze Rego, who had preserved the copies of most of his songs, Wilfy collected the copies from them and In 1968, the first edition of his book “Vinchnnar  Podam” (selected songs) was brought out. The book was sold out within no time and a second edition was printed soon after.  For the first time Wilfy could earn some money out of his music which also enabled him get married to his beloved Meena and she provided the much needed inspiration and strength to Wilfy to stick on to his passion. 

Love-Struck:

Meena had started singing in his group in 1963 and was a part of his regular programmes.  When his aunt insinuated that it would be difficult to get a proposal for a lady who sang in nites those days, Wilfy who was already smitten by Meena, vowed to marry her.  Through the song “Amchem Kazaar” they announced their desire to marry and finally tied the knot in 1970.

The turning point in his life came in the year 1971 when friends who, by now had realized the popularity of Konkani songs suggested having a three-hour show of Wilfy’s songs.  A nervous Wilfy though, hesitated initially, gave his nod and the first Wilfy Nite at Town Hall was massive hit.  The second show the immediate Sunday was also a huge success and following his success he was conferred with the title “Konkan Kogull” (Nightingale of Konkan) in the same year. What began on a nervous note became a phenomenon that made people look forward to and catapulted Wilfy to the zenith of popularity.   So far he has done 245 Nites, 500 stage shows and composed about 3000 songs and conducted shows in various parts of India, Middle-East and in Canada.  

Wilfy climbed the popularity chart when “Mog Ani Maipas”, the first Konkani film in colour produced under United Youngsters banner was released in 1977, for which he wrote the story, lyrics and provided music.  Since then he has written lyrics and provided music for “Kazara Uprant”, a video film (1988), Bogsanne (1996) and Padri (2005) apart from writing story for Konkani movie “Tisri Cheet”.

Career in Konkani Music: 

1979 was another landmark in the lives of the Rebimbus family with the release of the first cassette.  His ardent admirers Jemma Padil and Wilfy D’Souza financed the project, which proved to be an instant hit.  For the first time apart from name and popularity Wilfy was able to earn selling his songs. Apart from Meena, his children Veena and Vishwas also lent their voices to songs and soon Rebimbus family became a household name in Konkani-speaking homes both in India and Gulf countries. From 1984 he began to tour Gulf countries to stage shows and musical nites and in 2005 Wilfy Nite was performed in Canada.     


United Youngsters - During Wilfy's 60th Birthday

 

His popularity can be gauged from the fact that so far he has brought out 40 volumes of audio cassettes, 6 volumes of devotional songs, 37 compact discs and 1 instrumental C D.  He has also composed some songs in Tulu and staged Tulu shows.    

Local artistes of United Youngsters were not able to shoulder additional work that came along and Wilfy sought the help of professionals and with that began his long association with Pappan Group of Calicut in 1987 which continues even after 22 years.   Wilfy brushes aside criticism of not using local talents saying lack of professionalism forced him to go for a professional group.  

At 67, Wilfy exudes the same zeal and fervency that brought him name and fame. He is now busy with the golden jubilee preparations and is immersed in the task of bringing out CD’s in sets of 1 to 40 volumes in compact discs, which are expected to be ready by August this year.  The fourth edition of his book “Kogull Gaita”, consisting of volumes of songs lyrics is also scheduled for release this year. 

Unfulfilled Dreams: 

With age catching up Wilfy is trifle sad for having failed to fulfill his long-cherished dream of setting up a mobile musical van for practical reasons. His dream of starting a school for music enthusiasts also remains only a dream.  

Having led a struggling life he did not encourage his children Veena and Vishwas to have a full time career in music, which he feels was the wisest thing to do.   But the children are part of the Wilfy Nite shows wherever they are staged. The new addition to the family is Charlene, Vishwas’s wife, whose love for music drew her to the Rebimbus family. Love blossomed and she became a life partner of Vishwas.  

The Golden Moment: 

On hindsight, Wilfy is happy for whatever he has been able to do for Konkani.  He is an embodiment of honesty and modesty when he says “it is not that whatever I did was out of love of Konkani.  I must say I did it for my own benefit but the language I used was Konkani”.

For the moment he is concentrating on the celebrations to mark the golden jubilee of his singing career and the formation of United Youngsters.  Celebrations include release of two books on April 12 which also happens to be Easter day – fourth edition of Kogull Gaitha and a research book “Kogulle Patlyan”, written by Nandini.   

August 15, 2009 will be a sentimental night at Don Bosco Hall where those members of United Youngsters who have rendered invaluable service will be felicitated.  Finally, on October 18, 2009, to mark the golden jubilee day, a gala function will be organized in the Town Hall.  

Wilfy has been honoured with numerous awards in recognition of his unique talent and service.  But he says “nothing compares the love and affection showered by the people of this land who have made me what I am”.  

Fifty years is a long time and Wilfy will certainly continue his passion with more spirit and verve. No one can take away his contributions to popularizing Konkani in its true essence.  Wilfy’s fans are certainly looking forward to many more fruitful years of musical life from Rebimbus family.

I extend my heart-warm congralutaions to Wilfy and family on completing 50 years in Konkanni Songs. No doubt, he has been a 'phenomenon' for Konkanni language and culture. His contribution is unique and irreversible. Of course, I am great fan of Wilfy. For, his songs not only spreads the konkanni language but also catholic values. Therefore, his songs will have lasting effect.

Wilfy, no words are enough to describe your contribution, dedication, humor, entertainment and sacrifices that you have given to the society whether they were Hindu, Muslim or Christians in Mangalore or all over the world and your name is always there on their lips,heart,soul and mind. Every artist suffers in his life time to achieve the best and you have faithfully done everything you can, saying 'tomorrow could be better' and there you go. I was fortunate to attend your dramas, listen to your songs, singing them myself at various occasions and collecting the books and tapes. You were kind and humble to the people and you have opened their minds and you remained as a inner voice to many. I wish you all the best and good health. Many more to come. Your family,friends and the well wishers are the strength and pride of your career. May God bless you always. We love you Wilfy.

It's a wonderful article to read about and remember. I am personally a great admirer of Wilfy Rebimbus from my teenage. I remember having watched his Tisri Cheet play at Kinnigoli long back during 1970s. I have watched his musical nights many a times. I used to sing his songs on stages wherever I had an opportunity. Richie Lasrado and self have sung his songs on stage while we were in bank service together at Virajpet in the 1970s to the applause of spectators.

Even now I murmur his songs which are carrying not only meaning but also reality in many ways. As rightly pointed out by Mr.Eddie Sequeira of Qatar he deserves highest honour for his services rendered to the Konkani Society like Padmashri/Rajyothsava Prashasthi etc. He is undoubtedly a ruling King in our hearts. God Bless him and his family.

Thank you Wilfy and Meena for being very kind and good to me. God bless both of you and your family. My trip from Mangalore to Mumbai with Viswas and his wife(sorry I can not remember her name) was very good. You all are involved in my prayers. Fr. Baptist pais, SVD, Andheri East.

I cannot forget those beautiful and melodius evenings of Kinnigoly Church premises when wilfy used to come with his team to perform on the stage. I always picked up two pebbles to give timing when he sang. I cannot forget that beautiful fancy dress of the 'sanyasi' wilfy wore when he sang 'kuru kuru mama'at one occasion. I was then not even in teens. I owe my music and singing to wilfy. My inspiration was solely derived from him. I still possess some cassettes of his beautiful songs like 'Saanz Zalire', Sounsar....Sounsar...'Sezaracha Gara.... MAY YOU AND YOUR VOICE LIVE LONG DEAR WILFY.......

Eddie Sequeira, Mangalore/Doha QatarTuesday, March 24, 2009
Thank you Daijiworld for publishing the life story of ‘Wilfy’. Congratulations to Florine Roche for writing this well chronicled article. I take the liberty to add few of my observations. I joined Wilfy's group in 1976 (I am there in one corner, in that huge group photo of 1976) and slowly became a regular member of ‘Wilfy Nites’ and was active till 1990, compering his ‘Nites’, also designing all his publicity material, cassette covers etc. I always considered Wilfy as a true Artist of Konkani, a genius song writer and composer, a wonderful teacher if you are willing to learn, reluctant crtique and a most loving and caring human being. I had seen him sitting all night drumming with his fingers on the hands of the wooden easy-chair, singing one line again and again, to get that one correct word or that one perfect note. I had seen him dejected and desperate not knowing where the next Rupee would come from to feed his family. Yes, he toiled, struggled but he never cried for help. He never begged in the name of Konkani. There were times when some people tried to undermine the true contribution of Wilfy in popularising the Konkani Language single handed and I used to get agitated and start fighting, where as Wilfy just took it silently and not even commented in public or in private about such incidents or the people behind those hideous efforts. About ‘honours’, few times I had tried to argue with him that he deserves Honours like a Doctorate or a Padmashree, as many other artistes from other regional languages have received, some time for even lesser efforts, and we must try to get these awards, again Wilfy always declined to go after these awards and honours, discouraged me, stopped me from soliciting. Now after reading the well written article, and the comments from so many people from different walks of life, I have realized that Wilfy does not need any honours or ‘Biruds’. He is much more than all these. There is no need to affix anything before his name to measure his worthiness to Konkani. He does not need any introduction. Just his name ‘Wilfy’ is enough. Thank you ‘Wilfy’ for all the joy and happiness you have given to the Konkani People of this world through your immortal songs and music. Thank you ‘Wilfy’ for giving me the opportunity to be with you hundreds of time. May God bless you with a long healthy life. Eddie Sequeira, Doha Qatar

Hearty congrats to the Golden Association ‘United Youngsters, Jepoo’ and their Golden Master ‘King of Kings of Konkani music’ Wilfy Rebimbus on the occasion of their Golden Jubilee celebration. At the mere mention of the name of my ‘Sangeeth Guru’ Sri Wilfy Rebimbus – “The Konkan Kogull”, a soothing musical melody of his song flows and reverberates in the mind of the Konkani music lover. For the past five decades he has relentlessly created nearly 3,000 Konkani songs with his own music and lyrics and has sung them personally casting a magical spell on the audience. Wilfy is a musician, a lyricist and a singer, all three characters gracefully blended together in one! Wilfy’s every song is a story wrapped in music. Every song has a distinct message to convey. The words are fitted not just for a rhyme but are pregnant with meaning. Every verse expresses an idea and every word contains a meaning. When Wilfy sings his songs personally, his expressions do full justice to the meaning of the song! It is no wonder that in the Konkani world such a genius has earned a myriad of titles and honours. Wilfy is a man of unbelievably simple character and down to earth personality who likes to encourage the talents of others and help the poor even financially. He has founded ‘Gratian Rebimbus Memorial Education Fund’. This fund has been instituted to help out needy and deserving students to pursue higher education. He encourages, teaches and helps the new budding artistes to improve their talents. Many youngsters have joined the ‘Wilfy group’ and have enriched their musical talents. Verily ‘Wilfy Rebimbus’ is not just a name, it is an establishment! We wish ‘United Youngsters’ and their ‘Super Hero’ Wilfy Rebimbus all the success in their future endeavours. Long live ‘Konkan Kogull’ Wilfy Rebimbus & Konkan Maina Meena Rebimbus! Long live ‘United Youngsters’! A big 'thank you' to Florine Roche for this wonderful write-up!

Dear Wilfybaab, ‘Pranam thuka kortha sogli konkni porza’. You have been an icon of Konkani music and you will be always remembered as a pioneer, role model, living legend and above all a real treasure – “Daiz” to Konkani music. Of course, a great singer and composer that you are besides you have been a great inspiration to all the budding talents who have followed in your footsteps. I am proud to say that I’m one of those fortunate ones to be a part of your team. Thank you for your tremendous contribution to the Konkani music, drama & literature field. The present and the future generation to come will always be indebted to you for your inimitable works. A tribute to you from your ardent fan and follower… Rony D’cunha

Dear Wilfy,Congratulations while completing half a century in your singing profession. I have been your fan from the last 45 years and always felt that your songs were expressing my feelings. Nobody can do this. Also nobody has the expression that you have while singing on the stage. Every song of yours is a story and has a theme and a lesson. You fit the definition of “Think Original”. Your composition, tunes and singing is unique and unparalleled. We are thankful to God for giving us such a wonderful artiste who has been part of our daily life and responsible for the paradigm shift in konkany music. As I write these lines I listen to your famous “Mahima Dhevachi” song sung by Vishu. I have yet to come across a human being so simple and humble like you despite your outstanding accomplishments. We remember the great time we spent together in Canada and look forward for many more years of entertainment. Needless to say, part of your success has been due to the tremendous support you got from Mena, simply a wonderful person. Our best wishes to the entire “Sangeeth Kutam”. May the good Lord grant you good health and keep you fit for many more years. Flavian and Miriam

Legends need no introduction, just theire name makes them known to everyone and it is proved by you Sir Wilfy. I have no hesitation to say that in Mangaloren community - be it lingustic- Konkani, Tulu,Beary and Kannadiga, again be it relegious - Christian ( romans as well as protestants), Hindus or muslims - all communities will say Konkani music means Wilfy. Keep aside the urban and go to the place where there is still no electricity or roads - if there is a Konkani christian house and if they have a battery operated cassette player - they will definitely have a collection of your old records.Also, there are people who will name all and any Konkani song or album as "wilfy podam". For many Konkani people Songs mean only "WILFY PODAM AND WILFY PODAM ONLY" Thank you for giving us all wonderful songs. I must make it note that each and every one of us ( Konkani Christians)have made your songs as our life in various satges of up-bringing from childhood to grown ups and on...........

Abraham Coutinho, Mundkur/BombayThursday, March 19, 2009
Wilfy's love for songs and music in Konakani made him to walk a long narrow winding path. It is difficult. But he is still walking ahead. His desire leads him. He created and gave new direction to konkani music & songs and added best taste to it. Now the old and the new generation sings his songs. His songs are always new and fresh. Filled with Rhythm, grip on the subject and best use of words in correct manner as per the topic and situation. His Songs - Some times it is about a news. Some times it is an advice, a lesson, a story or an experience of life expressed. Happiness as well as sadness. Even an event inspired, made him to write and sing a song. His songs peep into every ones life, the life we lived and he has been singing throught his life. Sad part is that he could not get what his efforts deserve. Like fame and much money what Hindi gets. Christian population is less than 2.5% of national population. In that too Konkani is still less. Rather negligible. In spite of that the Konkani people whole heartedly liked his songs and music. Encouraged him. He lived by the support of people not by the Kings, like - in the olden days, such talented Musicians and Singers were sheltered by the King.- what was called " Rajaashraya". May God bless him, Meena and their generation. May they live long healthy life in love & peace.

Wilfy and Meena are synonymous with the best music heard in our growing years. I credit them with taking our Konkani language to a new level altogether. Our childhood have been so boring without their music in everyone's household. God bless the couple and add years to their life and their contribution to Konkani Music. Such a devotion to the language has never been seen elsewhere.

Arty, ValenciaThursday, March 19, 2009
Dear Wilfy, I am one of your privileged few, silent admirers who had the rare opportunity of witnessing your growth from a Zero to a Hero status. I do not have to write a big story about you as your one brief yet sincere statement “it is not that whatever I did was out of love of Konkani. I must say I did it for my own benefit but the language I used was Konkani” says it all. This statement also happens to be one of the reasons I found myself compelled to write these few words as a personal input from my side. Many moons have passed over my head, many things have changed around me, some even remain non existent anymore, the proof of which is in the list of the ‘Founder-members of United Youngsters’ mentioned on the article. I can’t help but notice that you have remained the same now exactly as of old. Same old mush, the same old hair style, the same old smile and same almost everything. Nothing has changed despite the 50 odd decades of pleasant & rough weathers you have braved through, except perhaps for the rim of your spectacles and the eye catching designer black bow you and my friend Prem wore in photograph # 2 which I doubt very much if available in the market these days. I have forgotten most of the other things now, but my first encounter with you at the Don Bosco Hall is still fresh in my mind. This was when I said for the first time when I saw you for the first time ‘this guy will be great. He has an amazing voice’, although ‘Boro’ was the actual word used then. Incidentally terms like ‘Cool, awesome, amazing, Endeavour’ were yet to arrive in Mangalore except perhaps ‘yaar’. Good luck, good health and God Bless you Meena and family – Arty (Valencia)

Wilfy Sir , I am very much impressed by your observation "it is not that whatever I did was out of love of Konkani. I must say I did it for my own benefit but the language I used was Konkani " I would rather say , we ( Konkani ) , will remain indebted to you for life for choosing Konkani language and enriching it with your multiple talent. Even after reaching such great heights you are so humble, this itself is a lesson to younger generation , soon after cutting an initial album, who think that they are the Kings of Konkani Music . Those who opposed your tunes on “ saving culture ” grounds , today following your footprints. Even today , after 50 years , NO Musician in Konkani has maintained your consistency. Awards and accomplishments whatever you have received are very less compared to your achievements. I pray to God to grant you good health and Thank almighty for Blessing you with multi talents. You are a Poet , Lyricist , Composer , Singer . Playwright and a Journalist too. Along with Music School we are also looking for your Autobiography as you are not an individual but an Era of Transformation in Konkani literature as well as music. I wish all the Best to You , Your Family and United Youngsters for its Golden Jubilee Celebrations. Make it a Grand and memorable Event for Konkani. We are proud of you. May it Turn Diamond , Platinum …and on and on. Jai Ho !
