    Really great programme. Singers were given songs suitable to their voice. In between break/intervals noted singers from bahrain rendered some foot tapping oldie numbers like Sophia, dudhi kuvalo rompo ani kanghi, late enasam composed elethin bai kasmir baab etc...etc..Really great job by Konkani kutam bahrain.

     All the best to all qualified singers...again thank you very much to organizers....
