Bhubaneswar: Day 3 of the inaugural edition of ‘DoT FEST’ (Bhubaneshwar City Festival) successfully ended with an eventful turnout of audiences who witnessed a one of a kind performance by Bollywood singer and performer Sona Mohapatra.
Amidst the scrumptious food offerings and experiences at the festival, the lineup of songs by the artiste filled the festival ground with the unmistakable deep and earthy voice she is well-known for.
The talented singer and music composer gave the audiences a power packed performance. With her eclectic style and penchant to fuse folk with contemporary, Sona’s performance at the festival was loved by one and all as she enthralled the audiences with her trademark ‘Lal Pari Mastani – Live in Concert’.
