The Sangeet Samrat and his team presented popular numbers such as “Ye Ye Katrina,” sung by Henry D’Souza and Aparna Mayekar; “Daryacha Daryacha Laarani,” sung by Henry and Anita Samson; and many more for nearly one hour.

Henry and his team were accompanied by local musicians under the leadership of Benjamin Miranda, Roshan on the lead guitar, Richard Monteiro on keyboard, Angel on the trumpet, James and Sachin Sequeira on the Saxophone, and Ashit on the bass guitar.

In his address, Albert D’Souza congratulated Mandd Sobhann for organizing a cultural extravaganza of 25 days. John D’Silva spoke of the need to set up a Konkani Academy and Konkani Bhavan in states populated with Konkani speaking people in a bid to preserve and promote Konkani language and culture. He also spoke of the importance of organizing Konkani cultural festivals annually.
