Pokhara dances to Sourabhee’s tunes


An enthusiastic crowd cheered as the fourth Indian Idol Sourabhee Debbarma took to the stage at the Pokhara Exhibition Centre on March 16. In response to her fans’ welcome, the smiling Idol asked, “How are you?”

The crowd enjoyed the concert from the word go as she began her performance belting one song after another. With her Mongolian looks that makes her look like a Gurung thiti, Sourabhee was able to wow the Pokhareli crowd no end.

She presented over a dozen songs including Meharwan, Yeh nasha ke nasha, Ishq to.

Though it was dusty, the Pokharelis ignored the heat and dust as Sourabhee performed her rocking numbers. They jumped and danced to her tunes. The concert was supposed to be held on March 15 but had to be cancelled as the artistes could not reach Pokhara on time. Though a day late, still thousands had turned up for the Seagram’s Royal Stag Indian Idol Live In Concert. People from neighbouring district of Kaski had also come for the concert.

Sourabhee also informed her fans that her new album was coming out and did not forget to tell them to buy it. The other attraction was Kapil Thapa, Indian Idol 4’s first runner-up. He presented numbers like Gorkhaliko chhoro, Mujhko kya huwa among others. As

he performed, he frequently came down from the stage to entertain the crowd.

And all felt proud when our very own Kranti Ale put the Nepali Dhaka topi on Thapa as a token of love from the Pokharelis.

Torsha Sarkar’s performance was also rocking. She presented Hidni numbers like Nachale, Chaliya giving the crowd full entertainment.

Kranti sang numbers like Chhori magna janda, He hoi and Chyangba.

The concert that was opened by Pokhareli singer Bhaskeardhwoj Shrestha performing Tara khasyauli, ended with Sourabhee, Kapil, Torsha and Kranti belting out Kajarare.

No one could stop themselves from dancing to the song.

An Annapurna Post event, Seagram’s Royal Stag Indian Idol Live in Concert was supported by TV Max Pvt Ltd and managed by DMI, while the hospitality partners were Soaltee Crowne Plaza and Pokhara Grande.
