Goan art and music is not only restricted to Goan boundaries but has travelled all over the world wherever the Goans have moved.

It was a pleasant evening on 6th March 2014 when our very own Goan Agnelo D’souza popularly known as Bab Agnel in tiatr circles, a talented singer, composer tiatr artiste was invited by Tiatr Academy of Goa for its monthly programme ‘Meet the Artistes’ held at the TAG’s Conference Hall, Campal, Panaji.

Hailing from Goa Velha, Bab Agnel while narrating his stage life, told to those present that he stepped on the tiatr stage at the age of 13 in his neighbouring village tiatr at Siridao. With the appreciation received from the audience, he gained the confidence and took to the professional stage.

He has performed for well-known directors like Rodil, Prem Kumar, Ulhas Buyao, Chris Perry, H. Briton, Rosary Ferns, C. Alvares, etc. Besides performing on stage, he has rendered his voice to many Konkani albums produced by various producers.  He also has 3 of his own Konkani audio albums.

He is one of those artistes who thrive to promote and keep our mother tongue Konkani alive in the Gulf countries and shared his experiences of staging tiatrs in that region.

Agnel stated that whenever he is back in Goa, he does not leave the opportunity to perform in tiatrs and thanked Prince Jacob and other directors who accommodate him in their tiatrs during his vacation in Goa.

Earlier Shri Jacob Fernandes, President of TAG welcomed the gathering and later presented a memento to Bab Agnel as a remembrance of the day.

Prominent among those present were tiatr artistes Marcus Vaz, Eddie Mascarenhas, Jack Rodson, etc.
