This year on his third death anniversary, a ‘Wilfy Rebimbus Day’ with the theme ‘Celebrating Womanhood Through the Songs of Wilfy Rebimbus’ will be presented on Sunday March 10, at Don Bosco Hall, Mangalore. Many prominent and new singers and performers from in and around the city have come together to make this unique programme a success.

As this event is celebrating womanhood and March 8 being ‘Women’s Day’, the organizers have managed to get renowned social worker and former deputy Mayor of Mangalore Judith Mascarenhas to be the honoured guest along with Meena Rebimbus.

Already, a few well-wishers have come forward from India and abroad to sponsor this show. The funds remaining after the show will once again be utilized to help needy cancer patients through the Rebimbus family. As entry to this show is free, the organizers have requested all those who would like to attend to be there on time as seating is on first-come first-serve basis.

    Mangaloreans earned their asset back when Eddie retired from Gulf and landed permanently in Mangalore. He is a great organizer and emcee, thinker and artist. May God bless him and may his ideas and programs shine in Mangalore. Wiflybab deserve this celebration for his unconditional love towards Konkani Music.

    Congratulations and best wishes to the organizers of "Wilfy Rebimbus Day" .
    The same show was presented here in Qatar last year and people here had enjoyed the show, for the unique way it was presented by all the singers, dancers and actors. Eddie Sequeira a great fan of Wilfy who always thinks differently had directed the show and Iam sure audience in Mangalore also will like his concept and the show. Wish you good luck ..God bless.

    Thanks daiji for the news and thanks all the well wishers. Just to add to the above, This musical show is of a different kind and is planned as a single piece, wherein characters come in and sing and play their role. Crisp appropriate introductions to all the songs will bind the songs in one continuous story. The meticulous planning is done in the ion of the songs and acts, whereas audience’s interest too is kept in mind, while utilizing every moment. So please come in great numbers and I am sure you will enjoy the songs and music in harmony.
