KOCHI: The ‘Mapilla Pattukal’ rendered by singers Shefeek Perumbavoor and Shabeer Kochi hit all the right notes in the month of Ramadan setting the tone for the latest ‘Arts and Medicine’ musical programme held at the Government General Hospital here on Wednesday.

The 175th edition of the weekly show organised by the Kochi Biennale Foundation drew a fair crowd of bystanders, patients and medical staff as the singers teamed up with the orchestra for an hour-long musical fiesta weaving together a string of familiar contemporary melodies and evergreen numbers from the golden eras.  The programme opened with ‘Sundaramam Perunnal’ by Shefeek, denoting the beauty of Ramadan. Together, he and Shabeer, a BA music student at Maharajas College, crooned over a dozen songs concluding the show with the song, ‘Ezham Beharinte’.

Shefeek’s rendition of the all-time favourite ‘Samkritha Pamagari’, originally sung by K J Yesudas drew generous applause from the audience. An enthusiastic vocalist, Shefeek is a regular presence in music programmes on popular television channels.

Shabeer has successfully tried his hands at music direction and also lent his voice in the musical album ‘Ee Snehatheerathu’ by actor and playback singer Vineeth  Sreenivasan. The programme is an initiative of the Kochi Biennale Foundation in association with Mehboob Memorial Orchestra and it aims to provide solace to patients through therapeutic music.
