Francis D’Costa, President of D’Costa Financial Group has out done himself again. Each year, he manages to bring a truly interesting International Cast and produces Konkani Tiatr par excellence!! In keeping with his theme of "Keeping Goan Heritage Alive", this year for the very first time, Seven Stars of international repute will be flown in from Goa, Bombay and Kuwait to star in this highly acclaimed and successful show "Goemcho Avaz". Performances will staged at the Pope John Paul II Polish Cultural Centre – 4300, Cawthra Road, Mississauga, on the Sunday 17th July and Sunday 24th July at 2.00 p.m.

Antoinette Mendez, of ‘Amchem Noxib’ fame, heads the star line up, with Queen of Comedy "Succorine", who will be singing & acting as never before for Goan audiences in Toronto, Canada. Together with songbird Rosy Alvares, these three famous names will be sure to bring nostalgic memories to all Goans. Added to these are popular comedians John D’Silva, Agustinho and actor Jose Rod. (son-in-law of the famous Antoinette). Pravin (who features on most Konkani CDs) brings soulful lyrics and music to this very classy mix. Audiences are bound to enjoy three hours of a fun-filled afternoon full of high-caliber music and laughter. Konkani is on its way to gaining even more popularity (which has always been our aim!). This troupe is on an International tour, playing to audiences in UK, France, Portugal and Canada.

Francis D’Costa requests all Goans to support and promote such events in an effort to revive our mother-tongue Konkani. Let all Konkani speaking people pull together and keep our heritage alive and kicking!! We hear that shows in the UK are a complete success with tickets all sold out !! Come on Canadians from Goa, let’s make sure we show our support for our heritage and come out with the family for fabulous events of this nature. As usual, there will be plenty of Goan food for sale and to taste!! As usual, Francis D’Costa goes all out in his efforts to ensure success in promoting our culture.
