Despite apprehension that the ongoing HSLC and HSSLC exams would play spoilsport, a huge crowd turned up for the Indian Idol live concert Monday evening at DDSC Stadium Dimapur.
Music enthusiasts cutting across all age groups were charged up when the Indian Idol 5 Sreeram Chandra pointed out that Dimapur crowd was the biggest for a live concert ever held for him.
The mega concert, organized by Dimapur Sumi Students’ Union (DSSU) as part of Valentine’s Day celebration with a view to sensitize youngsters on the importance of observing the occasion in a decent manner, attracted a huge number of young couples.
Lauding the Indian Idols and their crew for visiting Nagaland, chief guest Rajya Sabha MP Khekiho Zhimomi pointed out that it showed signs of common growth across the country.
The atmosphere became more electric after the entry of Indian Idol 5 finalist Bhoomi who kickstarted the evening with Bollywood number ‘Kaisi Pheli’ from the movie Parineeta. Bhoomi left the crowd mesmerized by her confidence and ease while singing on the stage.
Quickly following up after her performance was Indian Idol Season 5 Sreeram, who also enthralled the crowd by another Bollywood number ‘Bachana hai haseno’. Hyderabad-based Sreeram Chandra also belted out the song ‘Rehnuma’, from the Hollywood movie ‘The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader’. A professional singer from the south, Sreeam has won the hearts of millions during the Indian Idol contest with his melodious voice. In addition, he also left the Dimpurians mesmerized.
The mega concert also saw the beginning of the journey for Dewey’s Band, consisting of Shashi Suman, composer, SaReGaMaPa finalist Mugdha Hasabnis and Indian Idol finalists Charu Semwal, Dimapur’s own Indian Idol finalist Remo Ghosh, Naitik Nagda (percussions), Alap Gosher (drums), Neeraj Mamaniya (keyboards), Mehul Gangar (octapad), Akashdeep Gogoi (bass), Zenti Dutta (lead guitars), and Toseif Shaikh (sound engineer). Dewey’s Band is a brainchild of Rosemary Dewey, owner of Miami (USA) based Twin Soul Entertainment & Productions, Mumbai.
Earlier while the crowd patiently for the arrival of the Idols, a host of local singers enthralled them with a mixture of both Hindi and English numbers.
Though the concert was well organized in all aspects, the only source of disappointment was the average response at the stall set up by NSACS on HIV/AIDS awareness. When asked, an official maintaining the stall pointed out that the placement of the stall was such that the main crowd could not access it. However, at the same time he pointed out that many youths have visited the stall earlier during the day.
