Bipin R Pandit all set for his musical concert 'Khumaar'
KHUMAAR is a personal initiative of yours truly. It aims at entertaining corporates through quality music and songs. With a team of 18 professionals Khumaar thrives to attend perfection and enthrall audience through meticulously selected songs and music that makes an effort to inch closer to the original score. Khumaar has accomplished many a shows in Mumbai and also outside Mumbai. The aim is to go International this year.
Khumaar has successfully positioned itself as a quality show for the corporates. All the shows held so far had packed audience with participation from the Advertising, Media and Marketing fraternity in fact entry to all the first six events was through invitation only. Khumaar had instant acceptance and connect with the audience as some of them stood for the entire duration of the programme. Khumaar was lucky to be graced with the presence of artist of the caliber of Pandit Suresh Wadkar and Roopkumar Rathod.
Having performed for 20 years as a professional Hindi Compere with a blend of Urdu along with my mimicry talent thought of floating a musical outfit thus KHUMAAR was born. We render old hindi musical hits from great films of yesteryears. In order to lend variety to the programme we include Ghazals and Sufi song along with a Qawwali sequence. A chosen few new songs are also rendered.
Some of the famous and big names from the corporate world who have attended the show so far are Shashi Sinha Sunil Lulla, Bharat Dhabolkar, Paristosh Joshi, Pratap Bose, Pranesh Misra, M.G.Parameswaran, Nagesh Alai, Ramesh Narayan, Ajay Chandwani, Mohamed Khan, Anurag Batra, Josy Paul. The list is very very long and never ending.
Am also having a social angle in mind by supporting activities of an NGO, Light of Life trust piloted by Villy Doctor and also CPAA ( Cancer patients aid association) through this musical show. They do a host of good work that includes reinstating of dropout girls to school, providing help to people with terminal illness and free medical attention. What CPAA does is known to all.
This year Khumaar will happen in the 1st week of February, 2013. The theme for the first half is ROMANCE as the programme will salute three romantic superstars – Dev Anand, Shammi Kapoor and Rajesh Khanna and also the man who breathed Romance the legendary Yash chopra. We will also pay homage to Actor Joy Mukherjee with some great Rafi numbers..
God willing on the day of the programme my dream concept of coming out with a book of rare articles on playback singers, musicians, Lyricst by people from the corporate world who are as passionate about music will see the light of the day. The book will also feature rare pictures of legends from the music world. The book will be launched by a reputed celebrity on the event day. A part of the sale proceeds will go for a social cause.
While celebrities from the Media, Advertising and Marketing fraternity will get invited to this show others will have to purchase donor passes.
