DOHA: The ninth annual May Queen Ball organised by the Goan Welfare Association (GWA) in Qatar will feature India’s most celebrated and Goa’s premier band, Forefront.
To be held on May 7 at the Diplomatic Club, the dinner dance promises to be a fun-filled event, said GWA President Simon D’Silva.
The band has blazed the music world with its sensational blend of vocals, instruments, rhythm, visual techniques and showmanship. Their musical history reveals amazing performances in India and abroad with several award-winning live concerts that have virtually cornered them at the vertex of billboard graphs. Forefront was featured on the popular MTV channel and also had the honour of being the first group to perform unplugged.
Forefront are the best for pop and equally dazzling in rock, rap, reggae, bhangra, Goa’s ethnic dekhnni, mandos and dulpods. Their first album, titled ‘Always By Your Side’ turned out to be a super hit.
The highlight of the event will be the crowning of the May Queen by renowned Bollywood stars, added D’Silva.
The May Ball has been successful in getting worldwide coverage and is one of the eagerly awaited events among the Indian community here.
