Mysuru: A folk-fusion band, led by popular music composer from Assam Angarag Mahanta, popularly known as Papon, presented a music programme as part of Yuva Dasara at Maharaja’s College Grounds here last evening. The event was organised by Coke Studio.
Despite the continuous rain, hundreds of people at the ground were entertained with lilting melodies.
Commencing the programme, Papon rendered ‘Khud Se Dil Dar Sa Gaya Hai’ and in between lines greeted the crowd ‘Namaskara Mysuru, hegiddira’ in Kannada inviting a thunderous applause. Later he sang many bollywood songs and also rendered a couple of Assami and Punjabi songs playing on the guitar with foot-tapping beats.
