Enchanting Us with Folk Songs!

Master Ch. Ashok, a Matendla School alumnus, was known for his singing abilities, in addition to be good academically too.

He was very active in all cultural activities. His interest in singing made him choose ‘Dubbulu Kolupu’, a folk story of Goddess Durga, rendered in song. He used to perform Kolupu during his leisure time. Now he is also supporting his family by earning Rs. 3000 for each Kolupu that he sings.

His voice caught the attention of a YouTube channel who approached him to make a video. A video with Ashok singing was recorded, which went viral with 1 million views!

This song reverberates in the ears of all Telugu people. It is played during Vinayaka Chathurthi processions, Goddess Durga processions and in private events too. With this success, he is getting several opportunities to sing folk songs.

We are so happy for Ashok and his family. May he sing and warm our hearts for many more years to come!
