Awaz FM, Scotland’s only full time Asian radio station and the recent winner of the Queen’s Award, has enthralled and entertained at the O2 Glasgow Mela 2010 for the sixth time running.
The popular community radio station was out in force wearing eye-catching pink and black t-shirts and interacting with the biggest crowds the Mela has ever seen. The volunteers rallied up huge crowds whilst they presented various acts on stage including Glasgow’s finest Indian dancers Punjabi no.1 and Desi Bravehearts. Brazilian dancers and Indian dramatic performers on stilts also wowed on stage and the audience were kept enthused. Resident Awaz FM DJs Gtown Desi and Desi Fusion, kept the audience energized and merry.
The Awaz FM volunteers created fun on stage with dance off, acting and singing competitions, proving that Glasgow does have talent.
Javaid Ullah Director for Awaz FM said: ‘We look forward to being part of the Glasgow Mela every year. It gives us a chance to interact with the audiences and meet our listeners. The Glasgow Mela has grown every year and this year it was by far the best Mela.’
The kaleidoscope of music, art, dance and food as well as the diverse range of stalls made the O2 Glasgow Mela the most successful outdoor multicultural festival of the year and Awaz FM has helped to promote and create excitement for the event.
Harminder Berman, Arts Officer for Culture and Sport Glasgow said:
‘I am thrilled with the success of this year’s O2 Glasgow Mela 2010. Not only was the weather glorious but also the crowds were large and diverse, of all ages and there were entertainment of all forms. Special thanks go to Awaz FM for all their support over the years as well as their robust marketing activities for the festival.
