Goldies goes Bollywood


SING&SMILE charity is reaching across South Wales with fun-packed daytime singing sessions for older people.

Starting on Thursday evening April 4 from 6-7pm a new Goldies Cymru session based on Bollywood music and dance will take place at Penylan Library in the community centre.

It is supported by the Cardiff-based Moondance Foundation and will be taken by Amruta Garud who is well known for her work with older people from the Indian community across South Wales.

Originally from India, Amruta moved to Cardiff 9 years ago. She is qualified and an experienced Indian Classical Music Teacher and an examiner. She believes music has no language other than love!

“Goldies” as it is more fondly known is NOT a choir but instead brings people together to sing the popular hits of the 50s and onwards through its increasing number of sessions across Wales and its award-winning schools intergenerational programmes.

Rachel Parry is Goldies Cymru programme leader, she said;

“We are delighted that Amruta has joined our increasing number of session leaders. We are hoping to introduce Bollywood sessions with her at many of our existing sessions in the months ahead.

”We are going to have some wonderful times dancing gently to Bollywood music and learning new steps. The music is uplifting and beautiful. Amruta is clearly very experienced and we are confident that these sessions will be extremely successful.”
