Konkan Railway authorities created a space at the station for musicians to play live music. Aarohi, Goa-based instrumental music band, was the first to perform at the venue.
KR spokesperson Siddeshwar told DNA, “Madgaon station is an important station in Goa, having a footfall of almost 10,000 passengers per day. Domestic as well as International tourists visit Goa round the year. It is a good opportunity for the music bands/troupes for showcasing their skills at the station.”
The idea, first implemented at the Delhi airport where a bunch of artistes performed, will certainly pave the way for local bands to gain some fame.
Authorities have also announced that any troupe or organisation willing to showcase their talent are welcome to perform at the station.
