Kuwait Troupe to perform in Bahrain

Kuwait: Bahrain audience can look forward to an entertaining evening when two of Goa’s most famous superstars Prince Jacob and John D’Silva take the stage in Maestro Shahu’s musical extravaganza ‘TUMKANCH LAGON AMI’.

The show is scheduled to be staged 5th April 2018 at the Indian Club Auditorium, Manama starting at 8:00 pm.

The musical, with artists from Kuwait, Qatar, Goa, UK, etc, was a ‘Broadway’ hit in Kuwait a few months ago; the audience was treated to ‘rocking’ entertainment in a variety of songs and hilarious comedy.


Young Goans Club (YGC), one of the premier clubs of Bahrain, will host the show.

The club’s history dates back to 1953 and is famed for its sports, social and cultural activities of great excellence.

Young Goans Club continues to maintain and foster the Goan fraternal identity by welcoming, connecting and uniting the Goan community in Bahrain with its all-inclusive approach, thus helping to make its activities and events much fun and joy, and its programs meaningful.

‘Tumkanch Lagon Ami’ will be the second event of Maestro Shahu to be organized by YGC.


Comedian John D’Silva, dubbed as the ‘Emperor of Goan Stage’ and ‘Prince Jacob’ will be major attractions of the show apart from a select cast including local artistes from the Kingdom of Bahrain.

Star performers include mimicry artiste Amresh Kamat (from Qatar), Bab Agnel (UK), Gracy Rodrigues, Clemmie Almeida, Esparansa, Laurente Pereira, Katty de Navelim, Gasper Crasto, Seby&Seby, and the famed Kuwait Trio of Cajetan de Sanvordem-Mario de Majorda-Michael D’Silva.

Other prominent artistes will include Rafael Noel from Cayman Islands, Emiliano de Borda, Ophelia, Quixote, Menino Fernandes, and latest political sensation from Goa Alison Gomes best known as Junior Francis de Tuem.

The show is directed by Maestro Shahu who will handle the music all by himself.


The name of Prince Jacob stands right on top there among Konkani stage comedians for having infused new dimension to comedy and giving Tiatr comedians a place of respect and dignity.

One of the undisputed superstars of Konkani stage, Prince Jacob now has legions of fans in the Konkan world and lives up to his status as a celebrity actor, singer, playwright, director, radio jockey, and above all – a great comedian.

Jacob’s handsome presence and superb comedy have won him accolades galore in the Konkan world.

The comedian who was bestowed the title ‘Prince of Comedy’ in 1982, is known as ‘Prince Jacob’ ever since.


John’s comedy is half intelligence, half execution. It is not necessary for him to make faces to look comic, nor does he need catchy dialogues to tickle that funny bone. Even his silence extracts peals of laughter from the audience.

In a short span of years, John D’Silva has achieved a tremendous landmark and fan-following in the Tiatr circle as well as on the silver screen.

John has always been in the limelight as a Tiatrist ever since he made his foray on Konkani stage, but he made the whole country to sit up and take notice of him when he made it to Limca Book of Records in 2010 for the unique feat of writing, directing and producing over 25 Konkani Tiatrs with titles having a ‘double alphabet’ in it.

John ensures his latest Tiatr ‘PORZOLL’ which releases at Easter, too has a double alphabet.

In the rich history of Konkani stage, John D’Silva incidentally is the first Tiatrist to enter the Limca Book of Records.
