In the Goa of 1953, a band was set up in memory of a musical genius. Some three dozen musicians participated in its various avatars. A legend and his brother also joined in some shows. The band went on to set up a volleyball team. The Goa chapter of the Jazz-centric Friends of Music USA was set up by one of its members. Another became a freedom fighter, a third did pioneering work in the Khell-Tiatr. This unusually charming story is typical of many of the Goan bands of the yesteryears and how they built themselves up, despite their struggles at the time. Most of the other stories have been forgotten. But a rare diary preserved this story. This book is one more piece in the attempt to give Goan music the recognition it so richly deserves.
