Mujhe Rang De - A Tribute To Asha Bhosale

Ranjani Saigal
04/13/2018

Meena Sundaram along with vocalists Shankar Gangaikondan, Meenakshi Kulshreshtha, Vijay Kumar, Suzana Naik , Reshma Nair, Hemant Patkar, Umesh Rao, Shantanu Sen, Pankaj Shah, Shekhar Shastri, Sharanya Sarkar Verma accompanied by  Nikhil Pendharkar and Vibhas Paranjpe on Keyboards, Manish Kurup on Guitar, Angshuman Parashar on Bass Guitar, Shridhar Ganapuramon Drums/ Octapads/ Congas, Ashish Panseon Octapads and Bharat Lagu: Tabla/ Dholak/ Percussion presented a musical evening that helped raise funds for ASHA. 

The event was held on Saturday April 7, 2018 at the Lexington Heritage Museum in Lexington, MA. ASHA is an organization whose mission is to catalyze socio-economic change in India through the Education of underprivileged children. ASHA works with over 200 projects spread across the length and breadth of India. The projects deal with educational issues from pre-primary schooling to professional education in locations from urban slums to isolated rural areas.

The musical evening titled Mujhe Rang De was created as a tribute to Asha Bhosale featuring all he hits. From old favorites and rocking numbers to  teasing and charming tunes and sensuous cabaret numbers the singers presented a wide collection of Asha’s songs. The live orchestra was an added treat.  The songs had still shots of the film in the background. 

The power of the song and the music was such that the audience immediately moved into nostalgia mode while listening to the songs. One could easily visualize Vijayanthimala and Dilip Kumar dancing to Ude Jabh Jabh Zulfe or Sadhana to Jhumka Gira Re despite these being really old songs. That surely is the power of the great music directors, lyricists and the amazing Asha who made the songs immortal. Indeed well deserving of every tribute that comes her way !

Mcees Ajay Jain, Jharna Madan and Sonal Yadav did a lovely job to add humor to the evening.  Some of the songs were rendered unplugged.  Meena’s  husband Sundaram was the platinum sponsor for the event. It was a lovely evening supporting a great cause.
