Mangalore, Jan 13: All roads led to Mangala stadium in the city on Friday January 13, where one experienced soul-soothing music by renowed singer Hariharan and composer Leslie Lewis, who together form the Colonial Cousins. The duo drew the audience into a maze of melodies, transporting them to a wholly different world.
Friday, the 13th of January witnessed one of the most melodious music concerts ever staged in Mangalore as Padmashree Hariharan performed a full-fledged musical nite, as part of the ongoing National Youth Festival. It was a splendid treat for any connoisseur of Indian music, replete with intoxicating music and magic that he wove through his voice.

Though the scheduled start time was 7 pm, and even Mangala stadium was set perfectly with enthusiastic audience crowding into the auditorium quite early, the concert started only by 8 pm. Some were disappointed with the quality of the sound system, nevertheless, it did not deter them from enjoying the concert.
Hariharan began the musical journey of the evening with famous songs like 'Vaazi Vaazi' (Tamil) and 'O Shanthi Shanthi Shanthi O Shanthi'. The mood was set gradually, and his next song 'Chappa Chappa Charaka Chale' from the movie 'Maachis' had every person in the audience humming along.
If 'Aye Hairathe' from the movie 'Guru' put the audience in a world of their own, 'Walking in the moonlight, I am thinking of you,' a Malayalam song the Keralites awestruck. The wizard had something for the Kannadigas too, with the number 'Kaalavannu Thadeyoru' from the movie 'Apthamithra'.

'Krishna Nee Bega Baro', one of most famous numbers by the Colonial Cousins, captivated the audience who were eagerly waiting for it.
Songs like the classic 'Roja', 'Nagme hai shikve hai', 'Tu hi re' fascinated the young audience. When Leslie Lewis joined Hariharan at 10 pm, the youth left their seats and moved towards the stage to dance along with the rhythmic rock band beats. The police had to intervene and ask the youth to vacate the spot near the media.
The theme song of the 17th National Youth Festival 2012 that was played in between reminded everyone of the main purpose of the programme.

Quite frankly the concert was disappointing. Some singers sing for themselves and not for audience. This fits in that category. Hariharan should take some lessons from Sonu Nigam!

He should have started the event with a Kannada Song... Other languages next. Kannada/Tulu should be first since the event is being hosted by Managalore.
