Hyderabad’s multi-culturalism and cosmopolitan ambience is well known. Yet, cultural events concerning linguistic communities other than the local one is still largely confined to gated communities or welfare association premises in far-flung suburbs. Dakshin Dhwani, a city-based music group comprising lovers of vintage Hindi film songs decided to broad base its reach among the citizens by announcing a new programme ‘Tongue Twister’ from the beginning of the year. Into its third edition, this event invites anyone to sing in their respective mother tongues. ‘ The only condition is that the prospective singer should carry his own audio tracks’ informs Rimjhim Gour, the organiser of this event. In a bid to involve the young gen who are keen on belting out songs by Arijit Singh and Asif Aslam to name a few, the event allows the aspiring crooners to sing any song of their choice. ‘ In one way, we allow a platform for these singers. The next is that we can also try and see whether we can get more talented singers into our group’ reveals Mudit Kapoor, himself a young turk who is comfortable singing Kishore Kumar or Mohammed Rafi songs alongside the latest crop of singers. On March 31 at 7 pm, the new programme of Dakshin Dhwani to be held at Nritya Forum, Banjara Hills would comprise singers who would sing in Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, Hindi etc. ‘ For all we know, there could be aspirants from other languages who can walk in and do their bit’ hopes Gour, who seamlessly transits between the 1950s and the new millennium as she takes the stage.
