Dear daijidubai / browzer,

Once again I extend to you a warm welcome for my Do-Re-Me-Fa column.  I’m sure, like my earlier musical chords you will enjoy reading this sixth chord also.  In this sensational chord I would like to present a great composer, singer, conqueror of song lover’s heart, who is none other than an evergreen hero of  Konkanni music and songs ‘Ye Ye Cathrina’ and ‘Ami Dhoghi Sezara’ fame ‘Sangeeth Samraat’ Sri Henry D’Souza’.

This rare jewel of Konkanni music, who never looked back since he raced and jumped first as Bombay’s craze in mid sixtees and later in other parts of India and the Gulf.  His creations have been broadcasted in ALL INDIA RADIO and radio SRI LANKA  and his HMV records entertained the young and old of every generations and every language groups of the world.

I must say that the Dubai music lovers are highly privileged to have in their midst this great music star with his long time singing partner Dr.Aparna Mayekar with their all time great hits at the gala show to be held on February 21, 2003 from 11 a.m. onwards at the poolside of the Al Nasr Leisurland, Dubai.  St.Mary’s Association Shirva, UAE, organizes this memorable show.  Internationally popular daijidubai fame Shri Walter Nandalike & Dayan D`Souza will compere this unique show and no doubt this is going to attract Konkanni music lovers in big number and undoubtedly will be a historical show.

Once again, let me take this opportunity to thank you for your support and love for Konkanni music.

Always yours,

Gerry D'Mello




 Shri Henry D’Souza is a bright shining star on th

Henry uncle, you are really a gift to konkani music. your songs are very simple but touches one's heart.
you have used contrast to make the melody interesting. The rhythmic sequences helps the melodies to feel satisfying as a whole. There is climax and articulation in the music. Thank you for giving the best to the konkani music. May god keep you in good health and happiness.

As a child when I used to hear to the konkani song 'Ami Doghi Sezhara' & 'Ye Ye Katrina" in Bombay,I use to wonder who might be this great Composer of these songs and happy to know that he is none other than Mr. Henry D'Souza. It may be noted that 'Ami Doghi Sezhara' is the mother of all Konkani songs, one of the oldest Goan folk song which is still show-cased by the Goa Govt. to the out-state tourist during their cultural entertainment, represent the roots of Mangalorean Konkani Catholic accent and the words used by us till date.
