TT’s reigning Chutney Soca Monarch, Ravi Bissembhar, proved once more why he is a star among the performing artistes in TT. Ravi B not only looked stunning in his navy blue outfit but his voice captured hearts and he had his fans screaming for more.

Ravi B and sister Nisha Bissembhar were excellent in their deliverance of film, chutney and soca tunes at the annual Father’s Day concert which was held at Centre Point Mall in Chaguanas last Saturday evening.

A glowing Nisha B looked as if she just stepped out of a Bollywood set in her off-white and maroon-coloured garara and lehinga outfit. She was accompanied her “Dolls” dancers who brought to life a beautiful Bollywood scene, only in Trini-style, and backed by the band Karma.

In his first appearance Ravi B performed “O Lal Mere”, “Saasoon Meh” , “Chalne Laage”, “Tumse Milna”, and “Abhi Mujh”. In his second set of the night he did the popular “Dularie and Akela” as well as “Dulhanin Chale” with Rakesh Yankaran.

“I believe that the people really look forward to the latest Bollywood songs as well as a bit of Chutney Soca and Soca music at this event,” Ravi said, adding that it has been a whirlwind of performances since he won the monarch title jointly with Rikki Jai. Jai who also performed in this event was indeed a show stopper as he sang a medley of his greatest hit songs. Jai also dabbled in a bit of Bollywood for his fans. His two sons Aashish and Vaashish and his only daughter Aavisha were there to cheer on their daddy.

Produced by Rafi Mohammed, the event attracted thousands of patrons.

Nisha B who brought new life to the show sang the Bollywood hit songs, “Main Tenu Samuja Waadey”, “Suraj Huwa Madaam” and “Manwa laage”. Nisha also did a bit of the “Chalo Chalo” which she recorded with cricketer Dwayne Bravo.

Karma also introduced their newest addition as Abbyshi Jackson. Supporting performances were done by Nishard Myaroo who was well received with his rendition of “Tere Naina”, and “Vivir mi vida” which is a Marc Anthony song. He also did, “Ratiya May Dulaha”. Both Avinash Maharaj and Nirmala Sesnarayan also entertained at this event.
