As the head prefect of the college and a member of the college band way back in 1988 I set my stage to pursueÂ a career in the music world and develop leadership qualities to steer our new band MARIANS to a success , in this beautiful coastal hamlet called Chillaw. Studying at St.Mary’s college I was proud to be called a Marian and still feeling the excited that the anem MARIANS for the band was suggested by Brother Aloysius our College Principal.
As school boys we couldn’t afford more than my grandmother’s rice storage box as the drum set some hardboard boxes as tom tom’s and also some scrap metal plates for our symbols and of course a high spirit of dertmination to make it to the top. My mother tirelessly cooked and fed the whole band in those memorable days. Giving us all the support, looking for electric guitars,keyboards was a dream. Practices went on with acoustic guitars and melodica.
The first great day was our first show. Wow the response was a great from the audience especially from the teenagers. I was the vocalist while playing bass guitar and also presenting the show. The long and winding road to success took more and more musical shows.
As shows cam in we gained experience each day and imporved our selfs to be unique and innovative. My focus and determine was to get to where I want to be. “To be the cream of the crop in the music industry”
In 1990 we released our first album, every music store in the country soled it. It was Marians SANGEETHA NAADE.
