Hello Bhaiya…

yeah it is getting easier though..n i like the ‘Forum Status “ page ..much better !

i am trying to make some noise..hehehe

check out Bollywood forum.  I never heard abt this duo before but I saw them on youtube this morning.  They r so good!!  Bisram n Romena Deokinandan! ( I seem to have this name in my head ..Romena Ali . It rings a bell in my mind..ie she was probably a popular local singer back in the 70’s or 80’s with 1 of the orchestras…i remember 2 other young ladies, .Tagewattie Persaud i think..her bro was the leader of an orchestra (from Essequibo Coast?? This is  very vague in my mind).

Then there  was Bibi Suleman or Sulaiman. ..probably  in Ramanand orchestra??

I dont rem thenames of all the orchestras now..? Indian melody makers??

Anyway..this couple sound so good..take a listen

have a great day..n thnx for ‘peeping’ in

Vidyarthi Orchestra had some great singers. the leader Dianand Shamsundar is a relative and he died a few years ago in New York

I used to love the radio program on Sundays “ local Indian performers” at 130 pm .. fave were devendra pooran, mohan nandu, rocky persaud ( he imitated Rafi ) , jeewan chowti , n these girls n also Celia Samaroo who was our local Lata then. There was a younger guy from East Coast, not sure of his name?? Leonard?? He sang mostly Kishore songs.

Was Vidyarti from WCD or Berbice??

Ramanand ork. played for a wedding(double weding of 2 sisters..1 gotm arried on the Sat night as her barriat was from Berbice.  I rem the 2 young ladies who accompanied them..i was abt 9 yrs or 10 maybe becaise I wasnt in high sch then.  The band all night .  The family were RICH folks n they accommodated the entire orchestra.  I still rem 2 2 of the songs which the 2 girls sang .. Raat aur din diya jale…n mera raja mere lala n they sang so beautifully that theyhave been 2 of my fave songs since that day/night

Vadewattie name is familiar.

I had my own baby transistor radio n didnt miss a single program .. so i knew the popular singers …even whn i went to the backdam, i relaxed in the hammock n listened … Sundays from 1-4 pm.

there was ‘East meets West in music” .. loved that too !!

good old days whn our sole entertainment was radio n cinema n of course local cricket ( all 4 of my bros played cricket n i joined them whn they played friendly in our backyard)
