While an inter school contest, ‘Voice of Jamshedpur’, for children of class VIII-XII, marks the start of the festival, music tableaus comprising English and Hindi bands have been arranged to play at various locations in the city, adding to the spirit of festivity. The winners of the ‘Voice of Jamshedpur’ in both categories- Hindi and English, will then share the stage with Shankar, Ehsaan & Loy, at a grand concert at the JRD Sports Complex on January 5, 2007.
