About the play: The play shares the bonding of the timeless melodies of 1940 to 1970 with the audience. In a family that is very orthodox, Shama is an exception whose heart and soul is the songs for which he is treated as a rebel in the family. Parshwa Sangeetha is a narration of the times of Shama, by the old aged narrator who happens to be Shama’s nephew.
