Back in June, 2007, Mungal Patasar and his band Pantar graced the original Songshine stage at Trevor's Edge in St Augustine. The next edition of the show will pick up the family thread, with a feature performance by his daughter, Sharda.
Sharda is an accomplished musician in her own right, having lived in India and studied Northern Indian classical music. She is also a musical/cultural researcher and newspaper columnist.
In a media release, host and producer of the Songshine series Gillian Moor said, "This show feels like a legacy thing.
"We featured Mungal and Pantar at our second-anniversary show, so it's a special pleasure for us to be part of Sharda's musical journey as well."
Also in the spotlight at the July show will be Adam "Mar" Andrews, whose terse, organic and sensual writing has thrilled Songshine audiences in the past, the release said.
As usual, the open mic is an invitation to new and experienced performers to share their work.
The concert takes place at Kafe Blue (formerly Kaiso Blues) on Wrightson Road, Port of Spain, on July 7. Doors open at 6 pm, when open-mic registration begins.
