World Goa Day 2022: When Goans rocked across the world

Franky Gracias

After a two-year hiatus, Goans in India and abroad celebrated World Goa Day 2022 (WGD) with gusto. In Mumbai, the Goan Institute at Dabul celebrated its maiden WGD with traditional dances and songs.
In Australia, the members of Goan Overseas Association of Victoria left no stone unturned in celebrating their Konkani heritage.
Apart from music that runs in their blood, the Australian Goans -- young and the old -- showed they are equally good at dancing.
But the celebrations that made the biggest noise were at the Hounslow Market Place, Hounslow, UK. Here, one can see comedians Agostinho and Janet entertaining the crowd.
There was more laughter from Baldwin Da Silva and Brandon Rato. Their comedy act was a show stealer.
Singing sensation Risma Leitao bowled everyone over with her rendition of some of the old Konkani hits.
Noywen Fernandes was at his musical best entertaining the Hounslow Goans to the fullest.
