Karaoke: Dasara To Witness Karaoke Event For 9 Days |

Mysuru: For the first time, Dasara will witness a karaoke song event for nine days. The Kannada and culture department has planned a separate stage for karaoke singers in any of the city parks with all the facilities. The shortlisted singers will be given a stage to sing songs. Meanwhile, for the first time after the Covid pandemic, Dasara will witness a book exhibition with the participation of over five dozen publishers from across the state.
According to MD Sudarshan, assistant director, Kannada and culture department, no honorarium will be paid to the singers who sing karaoke songs. However, we will give them certificates, he said. Our plan is to organise this event on all nine days in any of the city parks where the audience and singers can enjoy, he added.
Meanwhile, the department is also planning to re-introduce book exhibition in collaboration with the Kannada Book Authority, Bengaluru. The department is expecting anywhere between 50 to 70 publishers from across the state to join this exhibition which will be the another attraction at this year’s Dasara.
After Covid-19, book exhibition was not part of Dasara celebrations. This year we are re-introducing it, said Sudarshan.
Meanwhile, the karaoke singers feel that the department’s decision is a welcome move as it will give many young talented singers from the city a chance to exhibit their talent. Karaoke songs are very popular among audiences in all age groups. “Unfortunately, we are not given the due opportunities all these years. We hope the department of Kannada and culture will provide a stage for all the good singers from the city. We hope the venue will be near the palace as it will attract tourists also,”said Shradda MC, a singer from the city.
