Mangaluru, Oct 10: The sound of ‘Shri Kaala Bhairava’ Jogi’s Bombay band sets the celebration mood and the Kudla’s popular troupe is celebrating its fifteenth anniversary this year.
Said to be first to introduce Nasik band in Dakishina Kannada, the city-based troupe currently has over 80 members including girls. According to Nagaraj Jogi, the founder of the troupe, it is the first ever band troupe to get registered in this costal district.
“Success doesn’t come from what you do occasionally. It comes from what you do consistently. Since 2004 drumming has been a wonderful journey and a memorable one,” says, Jogi adding that “our goal is not to be better than anyone else, but to do better than what we used to be.”
The troupe shares a special bond with Navratri festivities and adds colour to Dasara in Mangaluru. On October 18, 19 and 20, the troupe will be performing at Mangaladevi Temple, Kudroli Sri Gokarnanatheshwara Temple and Venkataramana Temple of Car Street in the city respectively.
