AN Indian music extravaganza was held at the Port Shepstone Civic Centre on Saturday night. This event was in support of Vernon Govender, the guru of the music academy who promoted Hindu culture.

The night entailed performances from Sa Re Ga Ma Music School and Studio 311.

Guests wore stunning Eastern wear (sarees and kurthas). Directing the programme was TV presenter, comedian and actress Jailoshini Naidoo­ from Lotus FM and Eastern Mosaic.

Naidoo said it felt good to be in Port Shepstone as it was her first time.

Govender said he was happy that this event was a huge success and thanked the parents of his students and the Hibiscus community for always supporting his visions.

“I would like to thank all parents and seniors for having faith in me and believing in my dreams and at the same time for supporting their children to develop their inner talent with regards to music and culture.

“For me this is an emotional moment because all my students are like family to me. Over the years they have progressed and have moved to the next level.”

He said he knows his students will be the future stars of Port Shepstone.

His message, he said, is to keep the flame of Hinduism burning
