Vipin Anjera who recently performed at the 40th Hunar Haat, a government of India initiative was honored with the title of “Hunar Haat ki Safalta Ke Saathi’ by Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, Union Minister for Minority Affairs. The singer performed Jaane tere Shehar Ka from Jazbaa, his famous bollywood song. Amongst other performers were Pankaj Udhas, Amit Kumar and Kavita Krishnamurthy.
Overwhelmed by the event, Aneja said, “It is such an honour to be a part of the Hunar Haat Concerts curated by the Ministry of Minority Affairs, Government of India. It is amazing to see so many artisans & craftsmen coming together under one roof with different cuisines from India, ending with a culmination with music & dance each day for a period of 15 days in a row in various cities all across India. A true melting pot of India’s diverse culture. I have performed in Surat and Pondicherry and as an artist I am thankful for this platform that helped me connect with so many other talented artists. I’m glad I am able to entertain the audiences who attend these festivals to support raw talent. Also it was a relief to see the crowd back, a sight that we have been missing for the last two years due to the pandemic. The energy of live events is what we singers live for” adding “The timing of these events has been perfect as I almost stand on the eve of my next single release, Madhaniya, music rearranged by the very talented Harsh Davda and the video is done by Himanshu Aggarwal. It is a sweet melody for music lovers and I will certainly include in my upcoming performances”
