An ensemble of 15 veteran musicians entertained the crowd with some evergreen hits at the recently concluded ‘Stars of 70s’ show. Toe-tapping tunes echoed through the halls of the BMICH bringing back memories from the ‘70s. Veterans in the industry such as the Dharmaratne Brothers, Errol Fernando, Paul Fernando, Anil Bharati and many others entertained the crowd with music by Super Chimes.
The artistes were brought together by Annesley Malewana without whom the show wouldn't have been a success.
