KEA Celebrating its 20th Anniversary on 24th Mar 2017

Sunday, March 19, 2017

Keralite Engineers’ Association (KEA) is a constituent association of the umbrella organization KEF, which constitutes the Malayalee Engineering Fraternity working in Kuwait. The KEA wing consists of Keralite Engineers who have graduated from Engineering colleges outside Kerala. From a fledgling organization of about 120 members at formation in 1997, it has now grown into a massive monolith of gigantic proportions with over 480 members currently. It forms the backbone of the parent association KEF with over 25% strength.

KEA is now on the portals of completing its 20th Anniversary, which in itself is an achievement worthy of special mention, considering the fact that its members form what to the outside world appears to be a motley crowd with no common string to hold it together. However, this has stood the test of time and its oneness and unity has only kept growing and becoming stronger like the massive banyan tree.

The Executive Committee of KEA under the stewardship of Mr Sreenath Mandakath R., President KEA 2016-17, has decided to have a yearlong celebration to commemorate this milestone culminating in a Grand Cultural Evening SWARARAGM 2017 with a plethora of music maestros from the Malayalam film firmament including our very own Vijay Yesudas of the Malare fame from the movie Premam.

Vijay Yesudas is well trained in Carnatic music. He is popular for songs sung under composer Yuvan Shankar Raja. He has collaborated with various other composers such as Dakshinamoorthy Swami, Ilaiyaraja, A.R. Rahman, Raveendran, Hamsalekha, Deva, Ouseppachan, Vidyasagar, Mani Sharma, Keeravani, and Mohan Sitara along with the new generation composers such as Karthik Raja, M. Jayachandran, Sabesh Murali, Harris Jayaraj, G.V.Prakash, D. Imman, Srikanth Deva, and Deepak DevHe has sung 178 Malayalam songs and 118 Tamil songs.

Accompanying Vijay will be Remya Nambeesan, who is a multi-facted personality with acting and singing being her forte. Her song "Muthuchippi Poloru" for Thattathin Marayathu (2012) became one of the most popular songs of the year. Besides acting and singing, Remya has occasionally worked as a television presenter as well.

Remeez Muhammed and Teenu Tellence of the young brigade complete the famous quartet of artistes who will perform on the day. The program is scheduled for Friday March 24 at Sabahiya. It will be an exclusive event for the benefit of the KEF family and the let-your-hair-down musical extravaganza will bring down curtains on the Grand Year of Celebration and festivity.
