Kevin Misquith first emerged in the Konkani music scene in 2004 with the release of his debut album “Rupnem”. Since then he has never looked back and has been performing consistently providing quality music.
Producing four music albums and performing in several music shows, today he is well known among the Konkani music lovers around the world. His dedication and passion towards music today has won him a dedicated band of fans, followers and admirers in Konkani music.
Kevin Misquith released his debut Konkani album, “Rupnem” in 2004. Following the huge response for his debut album, he released yet another Konkani hit album “Tuji Yaad” in 2007. His third music album, “He Jeen” in 2008, too had a very good response from the Konkani and non-Konkani music lovers, and was a huge success.
The album was nominated at the Global Konkani Music Awards and won the award in the Best Lyricist category and was also nominated in the Best Composition category. His recently released music album “Thembe Thembe” can be termed the best among all, with record sales and super hit songs. This album has been the hot favorite of many Konkani music buffs.
He has performed at several music concerts and gigs in Mangalore, Bangalore, Mumbai, Goa and even internationally in the Middle East countries. He is the only Konkani music composer after the great legends to have performed close to 35 music nites in a quick succession at a very young age.
‘Ek Geet’ promises to enthral the music lovers with a wide variety of songs. A number of talented artists have been brought together in the album to give life to lyrics written by poets Kishoo Barkur, Wilson Kateel, Sanjay Borkar and Kevin Misquith himself. Stephen Frank’s music arrangement for the songs in the album has taken these compositions to a new level.
The opening track of the album has a song called ‘Sukknea go’ written by Goan poet Sanjay Borkar and rendered by Munita Veigas . The poet brings out the essence of nature using ‘Sukkne’ (bird)as a simile. Kishoo Barkur has done a wonderful job in penning ‘Yo Moga’ a melodious and romantic number sung by Prajoth D’sa.
‘Ek geet’, the title song has been written by Kevin Misquith and depict the passion of a music composer. The composer tells us how a composer should be and what he wants his music to be. The lyrics are thoughtful and passionate. This song is also a jungalbandi of classical and rock music for which Ashish Palanna has lent his vocals.
‘Oh baby’ is a very simple song. It has a catchy tune with equally catchy music and simple lyrics. The chorus of the song has a mix of 3 languages – Konkani, English and Hindi special. This is a romantic number written by Sanjay Borkar and rendered by Kevin Misquith.
The brilliant combination of Wilson Kateel’s lyrics and Kevin Misquith’s composition which worked well in the previous albums continues in this album too with the song ‘Aaz puni’. But this time it is not a romantic number but a sentimental one. It has been a long time since a heart breaking song was heard in Konkani. This is a song which will win the hearts of music lovers who like soft soothing numbers.
Along with the brilliant lyrics and tune, the soulful music by Stephen stands out in this song. The music of violins, flute and saxophone drives a listener to a entirely different world with Clement Fernandes’s beautiful rendition .
The song ‘Nach tu nach’ written by Kevin Misquith, is a typical Mangalorean happy song with the message to live life full size. Mohammed Iqbal has sung this song in his witty style and no doubt this song will get the folks to the dance floor. ‘Ek glass beer’ is a peppy yet soothing song. Ek glass beer is one of those songs with different yet thought provoking lyrics written by Wilson Kateel. This song has been sung by Kevin Misquith.
‘Raath moni moni’ is a very soft song which appeared in Kevin’s album ‘He Jeenn.’ The unplugged version of this song sung by Eden D’sa is featured again in this album. One more song ‘Baila Baila’ written by Wilson Kateel and sung by Prakash Mahadevan is a a pakka mangalorean country song which celebrates the beauty of typical Konkani tune and rhythm.
‘Ek Geet’ is the fifth album production by Kevin Misquith, Evershine creations has produced the album while Triad Creations has come forward to promote and market the album across the Konkani world. Loveline Rego and family, Muscat has been the major inspiration behind this album who supported Kevin to take up this project.
