 ipoh echo issue 139,  Ipoh Fine Arts SocietyThe Ipoh Fine Arts Society organised a Hindustani instrumental concert in aid of the Perak Society for the Promotion of Mental Health at SUK, Jalan Panglima Bukit Gantang Wahab recently.

Samuel J. Dass, of Samuel Dass School of Hindustani Music, played the sitar and was accompanied by Prakash Kandasamy, of the Temple of Fine Arts, on the tabla. His beautiful rendition had the audience clamouring for more. Prakash also gave a solo performance on the tabla. Samuel said that during his classical performance there was always a request to play a film song, to which he acceded by playing a popular Tamil song to please the

audience.

I reclined in the chair, closed my eyes and allowed the soothing music to lull me into reverie. Fine Arts Society donated RM10,000 to Perak Society for the Promotion of Mental Health.
