Meet the artiste of the month - Minglu de Merces


Meet the artiste of the month – Minglu de Merces

Tiatr Academy's monthly programe,   The artiste this time was yodeller Minguel Dias alias  Minglu de Merces  at TAG hall on 22nd July 2013

Minglu just completed 84, is full of energy and spirit.
It really made my day.
Sang almost all his old and popular songs including interactive and yodelling.
His grandchildren too gave their performance on the occasion.

Besides, One Michael Fernandes composed and sang a special song in Minglu’s honour.
(all songs clippings available in the video below)

What more?  Minglu said, he will be back on stage in his Son’s (Joaquim Dias) Tiatr  which will be staged in Oct/Nov/Dec in Kala Academy annual Tiatr Competition when Minglu would be 84 and half.

We always see Minglu  participation in the tiatr competitions year after year, I  personally remember seeing him continuously since 2007.

 The crowd too exceeded TAG’s expectation despite being a rainy day.
(Snacks run out).

 Thanks to Tiatr Academy of Goa for these memorable programes.
