Volunteering to bring some cheer to the ailing, singer Sreepriya Menon and team from Kochi presented a soul-warming performance at the Government General Hospital here for the weekly ‘Arts and Medicine’ programme organised by the Kochi Biennale Foundation (KBF) on Wednesday.
Members of the Kochi-based orchestra ‘Sreeraga’, the team comprised Chanchal Raj, Abin Peter, Srinivasan and Jisha Sajeev. Besides the patients, their bystanders and medical staff at the hospital also turned up to listen and applaud the musical extravaganza.
Sreepriya , a music teacher at a reputed school in Kakkanad for the past eight years, has an interminable passion for music, which motivated her to pursue music to the professional level. She has participated in stage programmes, sung for musical albums and anchored shows in leading television channels.
Chanchal, a photographer by profession, has been active in ganamelas for the past decade and is an Idea Star Singer participant.
Srinivasan, also active in ganamelas and music concerts, was trained under famous Carnatic musician Mattancherry N P Ramaswamy.
Abin has an experience of five years which he put on display at the musical show at the hospital.
Jisha Sajeev runs her own business at Palarivattom, Kochi , and takes her interest in music along with it to reach satiable levels.
The 234th episode featured several melodious numbers in Malayalam, Tamil and Hindi. The medley of songs was seasoned with half a dozen duets by Abin and Sreepriya as well as by Chanchal and Sreepriya in succession after the solos.
Chanchal began the programme with ‘Brahmakalam ’, then moving onto the Tamil melody ‘Kuzhaloothum kannanukku’. The show concluded with the song ‘Kasturi’, which had the crowd grooving to the beats of the super duper hit song.
A joint initiative of the KBF and Mehboob Memorial Orchestra, the all-Wednesday ‘Arts and Medicine’ programme seeks to provide solace to patients through therapeutic music. Professional as well as amateur singers who have attended the show have generously contributed in terms of music for the noble cause since its commencement in 2014.
