Students of Classes 6 and 7 of Centre Point School, Katol Road put up a spectacular show as part of their Biennial Concert. The show held on February 21, 2019 had incredible Indian folk songs, folk dances and folk tales and was rightly titled ‘Maati Ki Mehak’.
Prominently present for the event were Radhika Rajwade and Dr. Jai Singh Rajwade, Directors, Centre Point Group of Schools, Special Guests, Principal, CPS Dabha and parents and grandparents.
After the lighting of the traditional lamp, the programme started by taking the audience to Assam where classes 6A and 6B enacted the folk tale, danced the Bihu dance to live music and singing by the crooners of the two classes.
This was followed by a performance by class 7A and 7B on Gujarat & its vibrancy. Besides the Siddhi Dhamaal and the tribal music, the performers enacted and sang to a loud applause from the audience. Students of classes 6C and 6D had woven their performance around Rajasthan where the puppet dance & the performance won the hearts of the viewers. Classes 7C and 7D chose Kerala and the folk tale of Bahubali and his generosity, for their performance. The crooners of these classes impressed the audience with their melodious singing of the Malayalam song.
The penultimate performance by classes 6E and 6F, who chose Punjab as the State for their performance, had humorous puns and well choreographed Bhangra and gidda to foot tapping music. The journey through the States ended in Mazhe Maharashtra, the theme taken up by classes 7E and 7F. They enacted a folk tale of Maharashtra. Along with excellent performance, the enactment also had a message for the masses. The Dances and the Qawwali added to the beauty of the show.
The rustic backdrop, well choreographed dances, impressive dialogue delivery in the local dialects by the voiceovers, colourful costumes and appropriate use of props, songs, music & strong scripting made the Concert a spectacular one. In her speech. Radhika Rajwade called the concert ‘A Culturally Enriching Experience’.
