A pall of gloom has descended over Ribandar, with the sudden passing away of our dear brother and outstanding young musician Elvis De Souza. He was so swiftly and abruptly snatched away from our midst after being struck with a massive heart attack on 12th August late night. Ribandar has so sadly lost a very talented and promising son.

In the words of a famous Elvis Presley song ‘We are all shook up’!

Besides a great musician and a gentleman to the core that he always was, Elvis had strong and realistic views on social-political issues. He was very concerned about how awry things were going on in the political turf.

I last spoke to him just a few days ago when he told me about the musical shows he had held at that Silly Souls Café & Bar at Assagao.

Elvis enthralled thousands across Goa and wherever he travelled with his great music which will always ring in our ears for times to come. As we bid farewell, we also express our sincere gratitude and admiration for the rich legacy our great simple, unassuming and humble Elvis leaves behind. He and his super music will live in our hearts and minds forever.

Rest in peace my dear friend. Till we meet again Brother, it is Adieus but not goodbye, for you are not gone but have only risen to the realm of Glory.
