Squeaking speakers. Endless echo. Atrocious acoustics. Stadium setting.
Yet Shreya sounded sweet and captivated the audience for four hours.
Music lovers enjoyed her classical songs while party goers had their share with fast numbers. In an unfriendly setting for the concerts, four times national award winner demonstrated her command on singing. Mediocre musicians did not deter Shreya’s sincerity. Accompanied dancers appear distraction but her clear and melodious voice mesmerized listeners. Despite enormous success at the age of 26, incredibly humble Shreya shook hands with audience and entertained specific requests for regional languages’ songs. “Tujhme Rab Dikhta Hai” and “Mere Dholna” call for special mention for flawless delivery. Shreya’s VJ, Niharika narrated well with some excellent “shayri”.
Overall, the concert was worth but Shreya deserves a concert appropriate surrounding with suitable sound equipment.
