The wait was long but worth taking for Siju Siyan and Bobith Sagar as the two professional singers finally got the opportunity to perform in the ‘Arts and Medicine’ programme at the Government General Hospital here today.
Both Siyan and Sagar had to wait for months as the all-Wednesday programme is pre-booked for several weeks in advance. They were accompanied by Jennifer Alice, a promising student singer who had earlier participated in the music concert, organized by Kochi Biennale Foundation (KBF) and Mehboob Memorial Orchestra and sponsored by CAFS (Casino Air Caterers and Flight Services). It aims to provide solace to patients through therapeutic music.
Siyan is a professional singer and has sung in the 2017 movie “Pyppin Chuvattile Pranayam”. “It was an overwhelming experience to sing on the Biennale stage which brings cheers for the patients and bystanders. Besides, we have been waiting to perform here for quite a while but got delayed as there are many artists who vie for a chance to be a part of this noble cause.”
Sagar, who is also a professional singer, owns a music academy called “Big Bee”. Siyan and Sagar are the co-owners of “Magicband”, a music troupe based in Paravur. Both the singers have appeared in various television reality shows.
Alice is a 7th grade student of Assisi Vidya Niketan Public School at Perumpilly, Vypin. The trio entertained the crowd in the 219th episode of “Arts and Medicine”. ??
The trio sang a total of 15 songs, such as “Pavizhampol Pavizhandharampol” from the 1986 hit romantic flick ‘Namukku Parkkan Munthirithoppukal’ (starring Mohanlal and Shari), “Enna Satham Inda Neram” from 1986 Tamil movie ‘Punnagai Mannan’, “Malare Mounama’ from 1995 Tamil movie ‘Karnaa’, “Yeh Dosti” from 1975 Hindi movie ‘Sholay’ and , “Neelajalasayathil” from 1977 movie ‘Angeekaram’.
The trio concluded the programme by paying tribute to the late versatile actor Kalabhavan Mani through a medley of his hit folk songs.
