The Eastern Vocals Solo Round-1 was organized today, 25 Jan, at Kamath Circle by MAFIA. The event started just as the twilight set in for the evening and MITians flocked KC to witness this event and listen to some beautiful songs. The event was going to be a qualifying round for MITians to take part in Revels.

It was a solo round but singers could bring Karaoke Tracks or Instruments. Each participant had 2 minutes to give their best to the audience and score a chance to perform at Revels. The esteemed judges for the event were Mr. Bhatt, Music Composer, also an artist at ETV and Mrs. Usha from Sa Re Ga Ma School.

The first song was a rendition of Kailash Kher’s “Teri Deewani” and the participant did justice to the soulful tune, as the audience was left in a trance. This was followed by a participant singing “Gulaabi Ankehein” with the help of guitar as his instrument. That song left the audience in awe and the crowd was charged with passion and excitement. There were many classics songs also. A participant even sung “Ae mere watan” keeping in mind that Republic Day is near. “Te Amo” and “Saiyyan” also were much appreciated by the crowd. “Maiyya Maiyya’s” sensuous Turkish tones left the people present there on a musical high. A horde of other songs were sung by participants who also made it quite a pleasure to listen to.

The MAFIA team took great effort to organize this event. The Eastern Vocals Solo was a huge hit and the students loved it. The event was in tune with all the music, frolic and excitement going around campus for Revels. This was one of the events by MAFIA at the Pre-Revels.
