Srinagar: A musical-cum-cultural event ‘Baaman’ was held at Kashmir University on Sunday under the banner of Prism Creations in collaboration with the KU’s department of Student’s Welfare.
The event kick started with multi-cultural programs followed by the thrilling performance by a Pune-based rock band, including a budding rock band (vocalist) from Kashmir Muhammad Muneem. Muneem’s ‘Highway 61’ has fashioned the fusion of rock music with traditional folk music of Kashmir.
The chief guest on the occasion was chairman, Srinagar Municipal Corporation, Dr. G N Qasba and Dean Student’s welfare, Prof. Nilofar Khan.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Qasba said that the Valley youth “are second to none” and they have the potential to showcase the latent talent in them.
“The event has reinforced the impression that the Valley youth are second to none and the only need is to nurture the inner skills of our young generation,” Qasba said.
Prof. Nilofar Khan while appreciating the event organizers said the department of Student’s Welfare has been at the forefront of organizing the cultural events inside the campus.
Earlier on Friday, a three day photo exhibition-cum-festival was inaugurated by Khan along with CEO Prism Creation’s, Tabish Habib, and cultural officer of KU Shahid Khan Kick.
Khan also gave away certificates to the organizers and the associates of the event, including Kashmir Reader.
