Vijay TV Super Singer Pragathi in Durban

Pragathi_ConcertAfter successful shows like “Pattikada Pattanama” a tribute concert to Sivaji Ganesan and M.G. Ramachandran, “Superstars Nite” and A.R Rahman Nite, Deepam Productions presents Vijay TV’s Supersingers Pragathi in Amuthum Thenum Nite.

It will feature a selection of Tamil Golden Oldies in a 3 hour entertainment programme.

The concert will also include local musicians, dancers and singers Runga Naidoo (a Gold Medalist of the Tamil Eisteddfod), Kumaran Raman (a Graduate of Thamizh University, Thanjavur), Pragalathan Mervin Vadivel (a graduate of Annamali University, Chidambaram) and Mary Naidoo, daughter of the famous Ganesh Maistry of the band Kalaimagal Entertainers of Chatsworth.

Although our “tag line” says “A selection of Golden Oldies”, Pragathi will be singing a few newer songs and songs from the 80’s to cater for all her fans.


Deepam Productions was established in 1998 to preserve, protect and promote Indian heritage focusing on South Indian music, arts, dance and literature and has embarked on and joint ventured with many organizations nationally and internationally to realize this aim.
