We have many talent in Goa may be some of them

hiden due to lack of support. Goa Governement never

ever support those talent who embrasse the konkani

music. Goa Government only very much interested to

support Marathi lover either front or back door. But

believe most of the goans does not bothered at all

they see their own wallet to filled upto edge.I would like

to wish and congrats to Dy SP Sammy Tavares for this

album called Police Porjek.It is mavelous and

wonderful producation, however it gives me pleasure

to hear again and again. The most hit number one

should never ignored that is "Asilo" may be I am

wrong title that song.. This song sung by Mr. Xavier

Gomes bravo to Xavier, Sammy, Music Composer

etc. Such album make sense for the next generation to

followup the life of our parents who kick them in

asilo.
