Shankar Ehsaan Loy mesmerize audience in Newark
Shankar Ehsaan Loy, the musical trio from India, continued their magical performances in Newark, NJ on third week of June, mesmerizing thousands of music lovers. Organized by the American Association of Physicians of Indian origin (AAPI), the musical tour is being organized across the nation, coinciding with AAPI’s unique Obesity Awareness Program, CME seminars and Régional Conférences in Nine Cities.
On Saturday, June 22nd, the concert hosted by the national American Association of Physicians of Indian origin (AAPI) in conjunction with New Jersey Physicians of Indian origin (NJAAPI) at the prestigious New Jersey Performance Art Theater., Newark, NJ was a nearly sold out event with 2,800 people from the region in attendance.
The concert began with national anthems of USA and India. Dr. Sanjay Jain, Convener of the concert welcomed the audience and introduced the president of NJAAPI, Dr. Thomas Alapatt, who narrated the vision of NJAAPI and the initiatives of national AAPI, especially about the theme, “Be Fit & Be Cool” chosen for the childhood obesity awareness campaign. “Piscataway school system has been chosen as the pilot model for the campaign,” Dr. Alapatt said.
Dr. Seema Jain, Vice President of AAPI, in her address, stressed the unity of NJ Physicians and importance of working together for the AAPI convention in 2016. After Dr. Seema Jain’s introduction, Dr. Jayesh Shah, president of national AAPI, elaborated the significance of the childhood obesity awareness campaign.
The crowd cheered loudly as the trio, Shankar, Ehassan and Loy entered the eloquent stage, not disappointing the audience even a single moment of their more than three hours long non-stop songs and music. The trio continued with the theme of 100 years of Indian music. “The artists gave an excellent performance,” Dr. Jain said. “The crowd was enthusiastic and appreciative of the every moment of the performance.”
In his address, Dr. Shah acknowledged the efforts of the local committees that made the events spectacularly successful. “These multi-city mini-seminars and the obesity campaign are a novel concept for education and recreation that will raise funds for the local chapters of AAPI, the national AAPI and the AAPI Charitable Foundation,” Dr. Jayesh Shah, President of AAPI, said.
