Amritsar, July 31
A musical nite was organised at Virsa Vihar to mark the 37th death anniversary of legendary singer Mohammad Rafi here today. The musical night titled ‘Ek Raat Rafi Ke Baad’ was organised by Sur Samrat Mohammad Rafi Welfare Society in which 20 artistes sang the melodies of Rafi.
Rafi belonged to a village near Amritsar. This is the second time that the welfare society has organised such a programme. Artistes belonging to an array of age group from teenagers to retired men remembered Rafi through his melodies. Sunil Dutti, MLA, North constituency, was the chief guest.
Organisation’s president Baljit Singh Sahini said, “By organising such events, our aim is to provide platform to budding and differently-abled artistes. Singers must be encouraged.”
