Mumbai, May 10: Lucy Tauro released the first Konkani album, ‘Mog Konne Dekla,’ of the up-coming singer Antony Tauro Koppa, who shot into fame by Antony Nite, musical extravaganza in the metro, at a simple ceremony held at St Antony parish hall, located at Khairani Road, Sakinaka, Andheri (East), here on Saturday May 9 evening.
Sangeet Samrat Henry D’Souza was the chief guest of the occasion. He said that music has the attributes of soothing the minds and relaxing of the bodies.  Konkani music should lay due emphasis on Indian culture, by laying additional stress on melodious singing, instead of the high-pitched hue of western music, he opined.
Veteran singer Victor Concesso, metro based ‘Divo’ illustrated Konkani weekly editor Lawrence Coelho, Maharastra Konkan Association president Walter D’Souza Kalmady, Konkan Kalzam organization president Alex Monteiro and entrepreneur Clement Lobo were present at the dais.

Konkan Kalakar – Mumbai president John Sequeira, in his presidential address, advised the singers to make an attempt to produce albums of their melodious songs rather than with the sole objective of making huge profit.  These albums should find their place in many houses of the Konkans world-wide, for the music to thrive which would serve as a tribute to the respective musicians, he added. 
Musician Benjamin Miranda, singers Suchita Antony Tauro and Aslita Tauro, Konkani music enthusiasts Denis Lobo, Blany D’Costa, Jerry Bondel, Charles D’Cunha, Ivan Sequeira, Rocky D’Cunha and others were present at the ceremony.
Reshma Menezes, Melita Mascarenhas, Ladrin Crasta, Simon Paul, Sandeep and others staged variety dances on the occasion.
Singer Antony Tauro acknowledged the support of music enthusiasts and proposed vote of thanks. 
Anil Menezes compered the programme.
‘Mog Konne Dekla’ is the first ever Konkani album brought out by promising singer Antony Tauro, hailing from Koppa, in Chickmagalur district of Karnataka, now settled in the metro.  He shot into fame with ‘Antony Nite’ Konkani musical concerts that are staged in metro and the undivided Dakshina Kannada district of Karnataka.  Suchita Antony Tauro, Prakash Mahadevan, Anita Samson, Dr Prashant Raj, Rony Crasta and Baby Diya D’Cunha, are the co-musicians, who have lent their voices for the album.
