Kuwait: London based Goan drummer to play at KGTS show
By Gasper Crasto, Kuwait
Kuwait: Tiatrs or dramas are one of Goa's traditional performance arts. Stories of more modern, social subjects are narrated with song and dialogues where musicians remain the vertebrae of the background score. The drummers, keyboard artists, and guitarists are part of the show.
London based Goan drummer Sequeira/Belisco Matais Rosario will team up with Kuwait’s well-known music Maestro Shahu Almeida in the Konkani Musical ‘Tiatristanchi Moladikh Kola’ to be held at the Indian Community School Hall, Salmiya-Kuwait on 27th July 2012.
Matais was born and brought up in Goa in the beautiful Divar island of 'Sao Matias'. His grandfather was a great musician and so he inherited music from him at an early age. Having a natural flair for rhythm, Matais started drumming at the age of 19 and played in several bands since then, one of them being the famed 'Purple Rain'.
Drumming for a wide variety of bands, Matais also played for a cultural troupe 'Alegria' led by Maestro Messias Tavares for 8 years and performed all over India, Colombo, Singapore (Raffles's Hotel), Malaysia and Hongkong.
In 1995 Matais left for Bahrain where he played in a band called 'Falcons' and in April 1997 he moved to U.K. Since then he has been playing for a band called 'Mustang', a well-known band among Goans. ‘Mustang’ plays at weddings, dinner dances, parties, British clubs, pubs, etc.
In 2004, Matais played for Lorna's musical show in London. Thereafter, he went on to play for almost all tiarts in U.K. Among the major ones, he featured in dramas of Jose Rod, Prince Jacob, Roseferns, Anil Kumar, Ben Evangelisto, Comedian Agostino, Samuel Carvalho, Tommy (Junior Nelson), Mariano Fernandes, Shahu’s Musical Show and several others.
In July 2011, Matais played for Lorna’s show at the Goan Festival in U.K and in December 2011 Matais was sponsored to play for Lorna’s show in Canada.
Drumming is a sound through which Matais expresses his emotions of joy and happiness. A humble, soft-spoken drummer, Matais lets his drums do the talking. Not too surprising then that this fine musician has music in his blood which has taken him places. See the drummer ‘live’ on 27th July 2012 in Kuwait.
