Dhwani- A musical Concert for a noble cause


As we all know, Kalamandalam has been in the pinnacle when it comes to giving back to the society over the years. This year we organized Dhwani-The musical concert for Noble cause, mainly to support the Village of Hope in Dodoma.

Village of Hope rehabilitates children diagnosed with HIV/AIDS.

Kalamandalam was proud to exhibit in front of a packed crowd, the little nightingale of India, Padmashri Dr.K.S.Chitra, Young sensation Kartik, Bubbly Rimy Tommy  and the melodious Nishad with a Team of 10 piece live orchestra in a never before Musical concert.

The show was held on 22nd July2012 at the Agakhan Diamond Jubilee Complex and it’s undoubtedly the biggest entertainment show organized by Kalamandalam in its 56 years old history till date. The Management committee is proud to have achieved this milestone after three months of intense hardships before the show and it was worth while the effort.

The show was coordinated by the ace film producer/actor Mr Dinesh Panicker.

The show started with the Welcome speech of Chairman Mr Kishor Kumar where he elaborated briefly on the charity initiatives Kalamandalam was planning to do in 2012.

Mr Dinesh Panicker took over from there and the team from back home led us through a magical musical journey enjoyed by one and all. The concert was packed with performances in Malayalam, Telugu, Tamil and Hindi by the ace musicians. Dr K.S.Chitra was at her classical best. She started the show with the melodious number “KalabhamTharam” from the film Vadakkum Nathan. The stage was set on fire by the young sensation Kartik and the bubbly Rimy Tommy with their fast numbers such as “EnakkkoruGirlfriendVenameda” from the superhit film BOYZ and UllilKothiVidarum from the film Mayamohini. Nishad was at his melodius best with his superhit “Palapoovithalil” from the film Thirakadha.

The concert also witnessed the launch of the Kalamandalam Theme song, a pet project of 2012 management committee. The song was recorded with the voice of our Vanampadi K.S.Chitra, written by the great Kaithapram Damodaran Namboodiri and music scored by Mr O.K.Ravishankar. The music loving public of Kalamandalam and the other Indian community in Tanzania was fortunate enough to hear this song live in Dar es Salaam.

We are grateful to our main sponsors BankM, Moneylink, MaxInsure, Airtel Tanzania, Zantel Tanzania, Dhando,Coco cola Kwanza, Tata Holdings, and many other sponsors who made this concert and our charity objective a reality.
