Music has no boundaries and no language. It is simply a mean to connect one soul with the other. SPEAC For Nepal in Tune with Joy Sarkar and Lopamudra Mitra experienced a different kind of musical evening where music was celebrated for a cause. It was organized by the Public Relations Society Of India, Kolkata Chapter at Satyajit Ray Auditorium ( ICCR).
Joy and Lopamudra teamed up after five long years for a noble cause. Eknath Panth a guide who managed the trip for Lopamudra Mitra and her musician friends in Nepal, experienced a great loss due to the massive earthquake. Lopamudra said, “It was a plan to support Eknath. He became a friend during our trip in Nepal. I felt very upset to know about his loss. It’s a very small contribution meant for him. I requested PRSI to initiate this concert that we could support him mainly.”
Soumyajit Mahapatra, Chairman, PRSI, said, “ We have already contributed One Lakh rupees to Eknath Panth’s family which was collected out of sale of passes, donations received from our members. Lopamudra also contributed a portion of amount collected from the sale of her two audio CDs Vandemataram and Khoma Karo Prabhu (Rabindrasangeet).”
Lopamudra Mitra sang a few songs composed by Joy namely Jao Pakhi, De Re Na Na, Chhelebelar Brishti besides a few Rabindrasangeet like Tomay Gaan Shonabo and so on. Interestingly, Joy accompanied her after five long years for this special musical evening.
