Arts and Medicine: ‘Musick’ gives an enthralling performance


Kochi, Aug 3: Artists of ‘Musick’, a well-known association of musicians from Kerala, conquered the stage at the Government General Hospital, Ernakulam today as they presented an enchanting performance by singing a number of popular songs from popular Hindi, Tamil and Malayalam films to regale the patients, bystanders and hospital staff.

Singer Sajini Anand set the tone of the musical show with a mellifluous rendition of the title song of ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram”, a 1978 Bollywood blockbuster starring Shashi Kapoor and Zeenat Aman.

“Music captures the soul and has no bounds of age or gender. Being able to perform before such an audience where every song is like a raindrop in the desert is quite gratifying,” said Anand, the magnificent drummer and Secretary of Musick.

Performing at the 129th edition of the popular weekly programme Arts and Medicine, organised by the Kochi Biennale Foundation (KBF) in association with Mehboob Memorial Orchestra and Lakeshore Hospital and Research Centre Limited, the artists presented a scintillating show of receptive music at the hospital premises.

Singers Sajini and Praveen, together with Renjith, who is a regular presence at stage shows, asserted their presence in playback singing by belting out a total of 14 songs. The duets, ‘Malare Maunama’ (Tamil movie Karnaa:1995) and ‘Chura Liya’ ( Hindi  movie Yaadon Ki Baarat:1973), elicited a huge applause from the audience . The troupe concluded the exhilarating show with the group song ‘Kya Hua Tera Wada’ (Yaadon Ki Baarat).

The patients who attended the music therapy programme were quite listening to the stimulating renditions of evergreen melodies. The effective combination of orchestra and effortless renditions of songs by the artists had the crowd swaying with the tempo of the popular numbers.

The Wednesday series of the ‘Arts and Medicine’ show, an initiative to provide healing through music, is eagerly awaited by the crowd which frequents the hospital.
