The legendary Indian singers Badhumabushan, Sripathi Balasubrahmanyam, Lakshmanan V the founder of Lakshman Sruthi, Malathy Lakshman and the beautiful Mathangi Jagdish who performed for the first time in Botswana made many of the Indian natives living in Botswana miss home as they embraced the audience with sweet Indian Orchestra melodies.

Balasubrahmanyam who took control of the whole show kept the audience on a spiritual journey as the crowd kept clapping hands in approval. He knew how to connect and keep in touch of the audience throughout his performance.

Malathy Lakshman a  gifted vocalist who can switch tones several times  kept the youthful attendants on the edge of their seats dishing to them some of her famous tracks. The reaction from the crowd demonstrated the songs' popularity among the Indian community.

Tracks such as Manmatha Raasaa, Ummaa Ummammaa, Madhamadha Madhannu

and Kumbida Pona Deivam put the audience on another level as the internationally acclaimed singer brought the house down.  The youth also loved Jagdish who was jolly, boogieing whilst singing.

This multi-talented  singer-actress' first solo single Anju Mani was used in the film entitled Chocolate And Kokkara Kara  Girl. The young performer drove the young audience wild as she asked them to sing along. The event was organised by Tamil Cultural Association who have been in this country since 1992 and has invited artists from different cultures to perform in Botswana especially for people who understand Thamizh language and culture across the world.

Proceeds from the charity event would be donated to Dinaletsana, a development centre for children with Autism in Gaborone, School of the Deaf at Francistown and I Am Special Education Centre at Tlokweng.
