Sea of sangeet

MUSIC, CELEBRATIONS and of course celebrities. It was all that and more fun when Sangeet Sagar, the popular music store, organised festivities on completing eight years.

The well stocked music store was decked up for a musical celebration. There was the latest Telugu film-goers heart-throb, Uday Kiran, and there was music director R.P. Patnaik. And invited to cut the anniversary cake and kick off the celebrations was the leading film personality, R.B. Chaudhary. The trio truly added glitter to the evening at Sangeet Sagar store on M.G. Road.

The collection at the store is truly amazing, spilling to over 16,000 titles. Classical or devotional or the latest in Western, one just has to ask for it. A veritable treasure trove for the discerning music lovers, Sangeet Sagar has almost everyone from Talat Mehmood to Daler Mehndi and M.S. Rama Rao to Vengaboys lined up. Ghazal, bhajan, jazz, rap, salsa - pick your favourite compilation and increase your collection.

As popular numbers filled the cool and cosy store, Chaudhary, Patnaik and Uday Kiran went around and browsed the collection of cassettes and CDs. Uday was his usual self, affable and smiling, while Patnaik looked engrossed with the compilations.

Festivities without offers? That's not Hyderabadi way of celebrating, one would say. Yeah, Sangeet Sagar, too, agrees to this and came out with several offers apart from discounts. "Buy one and take one free, buy two and take one free," cards were pasted all over the store. Enough enticement for those shopping for music.
