Mangaluru: Jaison Sequeira is back with his fourth music concert ‘Ch’ovto Sur’. This unique home concert will be staged on September 21 at 7 pm at Eric Mathias Hall, St Aloysius College (SAC). He is among the very few Konkani composers presenting new songs in every live show.
At Ch’ovto Sur, music lovers can listen to his youthful compositions rendered by himself and MTG winner Velita Lobo. This event is in association with Konkani Sangha, SAC. About 25 students from this association will be a part of the harmony lead by Denzil Pereira of the Blue Angels Choir.
Well known drummer and percussionist Sachin Sequeira is in the team alongside young musicians. Russel Rodrigues will play the bass/electric/acoustic guitar, Alron Rodrigues on the keys, Derick D’souza playing the rhythm guitar and Sharwin Fernandes on the lead. Reuben Machado, a young multi-instrumentalist from Mangaluru will be playing the Pan Flute, Flute, Saxophone and Harmonica. Soundhouse will be handling the lights and sounds during the event. All in all Ch’ovto Sur is going to be a feast of original music for genuine music lovers.
Po’ylo Sur and Tisro Sur Unplugged took place at Kalangann, Mangaluru, and Dusro Sur was held at Puttur. The ‘Sur’ series by Jaison Sequeira and his team is known for uninfluenced music presentation. Paving a new path for original music in Konkani he says, “Music in Konkani language is no different from any other music forms of the world in aspects structure and impact. My dream is to present my songs in their best form without having to compromise on anything. And that is possible through crowd funding. This has been the driving force of Sur series so far. So I urge everyone out there to contribute and help me realize the potential of this art.”
Original music production has been highly affected by rampant remakes and cover songs. Independent artists in India have become a dejected lot due to the monopoly of a few labels and various other reasons like smaller market, lack of regional platforms and higher cost of production. Jaison is one of those thousands of indie artists aspiring to make it big in the original music scene. He is a singer-songwriter from Gurpur and has a collection of about a hundred unreleased songs. Close to 40 songs have been presented in the Sur series so far. He has released his maiden music album ‘Ho Jeev’ in 2016. He is the recipient of ‘Yuva Kalapuraskar 2018’ for music at the decennial celebrations of Naman Ballok Jezu, a Konkani monthly and the ‘ICYM award of Excellence 2019’ from Dr. Peter Paul Saldanha, Bishop of Mangaluru diocese.
Ch’ovto Sur is set to create a benchmark in Konkani music. With half the resources and double the efforts, this ‘Music Only’ concert is the next big event to look out for.
Song sponsorship is Rs 3000 only. However, any amount is accepted with immense gratitude.
