Imran Merchant – August 12, 2017:
Seema Anil Sehgal Crooning For The Cats? Really?
A musical gig of this kind, has to be a first, both for the very versatile & accomplished doyenne of Ghazals, Dogri Folk, Sufiyana Kalaam & semi-classical forms, as well as for the very large retinue of four-footed felines, who don’t just have the run of Cat Cafe, Versova, but have in fact made it their home! They are in for a musical treat this evening !
I have had the pleasure & privilege of knowing Seema Ji for several decades, having heard her so often, down the long years, but can say quite honestly, that one can never tire of hearing her sing! Hailing from Jammu, Seema Anil Sehgal has been rightly hailed & applauded for being the Koel of Kashmir !
Today, in Music From The Mountains, Seema promises a pot pourrie of Ghazals, Folk, Sufiyana & other compositions, all of which are always her own work, because she is as good a composer, as well as a singer par excellence! The languages in play would be Urdu, Dogri (her mother tongue), Punjabi, with perhaps a little bit of Persian & Pakhtuni thrown into the mix, as well ! All this adds up to a memorable musical menu, which should put the regular fare at Cat’s Cafe into the shade, just for this one evening!
I do wonder what she means by this being an interactive session though. Guess the only way to find out, is to be get there & become a part of Music From The Mountains. I am already looking forward to it !
All the cats will have to be put on silent mode for this one session. Because, this evening, the only one allowed to croon, purr & sing will be Seema Anil Sehgal !
