Goan kids have much to offer in making our Goa a better place. They are clever and more engaged and passionate than any other generation.
Meet Goa’s upcoming sensation Joyrus Greger Mascarenhas, without question, a unique and bold new talent in the making in Goa’s world of music and singing.
The young master plays the trumpet and is also a singer of immense calibre.
Music has been a large part of Joyrus’ life, inside of school and out, and it has offered him comfort, as well as a sense of pride so far.
Born to music-loving parents Ramiro & Joycilla Mascarenhas, Joyrus studies at Guardian Angel High School, Curchorem–Sanvordem, and he is still in the 8th standard.
Joyrus had his first trumpet performance at the age of 9, at his school’s annual sports day function, while his first singing performance was at 8 years of age at the Voice of Paroda Singing Competition.
Boosted by encouragement received from his parents, Joyrus stepped up to participate in various competitions. He won prizes galore all around winning the Voice of Paroda Singing Competition twice, once at the Tiny Tots level and again at Junior level.
Later, the young master won 2nd prize for a Duet Performance at School Level Singing Competition held at Pilar.
