GiMA 2016 honours music talent, remembers Aadesh Shrivastava

MUMBAI: The evening started with Usha Uthup, clad in a GiMA saree, who performed a little duet with a fellow Tamil musician. The little jam, unfortunately, didn't receive any televised coverage as the only attendees were fortunate enough to experience the ideal intro.

Guitarist Dhruv Ghanekar provided a very musical opening to set the mood right with an instrumental piece of the Indian National Anthem. GiMA believes in making good first impressions and the fifth edition had none other than Arijit Singh as the first musical performance of the evening. This was followed by Ayushman-Sonakshi led 'GiMA' renditions of some popular mainstream music.

Sonakshi Sinha and Ayushmann Khurrana took over the hosting responsibilities for the rest of the night. Half way into the event, the nine-piece Drums Cafe upped the tempo of the ceremony through a flawless synchronisation with the attendees who joined the performers for an impromptu percussion jam session.

The night was dedicated to awarding the talented musicians for their respective contribution to the field of music in 2015. The who's who of music industry also paid an emotional tribute to late composer Aadesh Shrivastav, whose family was present on the occasion. Ram Sampath, Udit Narayan, Sudesh Bhosle, Lalit, Divya Kumar and Harshdeep Kaur provided vocals to a beautiful rendition of Baghban's title song.

With a beautiful portrait executed by India's Got Talent finalist Vilas Naik, Amitabh Bachchan remembered Aadesh's life and his contribution to music, joined by the music composer's family.
