'Veena' the indians traditional instrument is a classical instrument basically known as plucked stringed instrument that is used to accompany Carnatic music. The traditional Veena has been modified and refined over centuries and it is being used since ancient times. The instrument has been developed more likely to current trend and made it possible to be used for cinema songs as well as many other song compositions. Unfortunately the usage of veena is decreasing day by day.
For the very first time in Malaysia, 60 veena students will be joining hands together for a fundraising musical show in our country by playing the veena instrument for 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s cinema songs. By organising such events, it will help the veena students to trigger their interest in veena instrument. On top of that, it also will be a brilliant idea to encourage more younger generation to show interest in learning veena instrument.
