Mandd Sobhann wishes to place on record its grief and sorrow at the sad demise of the greatest son of Konkani, the father of modern Konkani songs – ‘Konkan Kogull’ Shri Wilfy Rebimbus

In his untimely death, Konkani has suffered an immense loss which can not be replaced.  He was a master of the art of crafting songs.  He was unparalleled in his ability to compose songs on contemporary issues.  At a time when organizations like ours did not exist, he was the sole missionary of Konkani.  Last year Mandd Sobhann took great pride in honoring him with the ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ at the First Global Konkani Music Awards.

In today’s Konkani world there isn’t a taller figure who has served the cause of Konkani for more than 50 years.  We mourn his loss and pay that his soul rest in peace.  We offer our most sincere condolences to his beloved wife Meena, his loving daughter Veena and his son Vishwas and all his near and dear ones.

He might have passed away but his memory will remain immortal in every Konkani heart, for ever and ever.
