Singer, song writer, composer, dramatist, actor, guitarist, drummer, Congo player and comedian – Claud D'Souza, well-known to the Konkani speaking Catholic community of this coastal region as a singer, has essayed all the above cited roles with flamboyance and with distinctiveness.

Claud has been a consistent performer in the Konkani music world and has travelled around the Gulf region for his own shows besides accompanying Konkani legend Wilfy Rebimbus for Wilfy Nite. He has staged many shows in Mumbai, Mangalore, Goa, and even in Canada.

With 50 musical ‘nites’ dedicated to Konkani music fans, Claud is not only an outstanding singer but can also play musical instruments like the drums. He is a compere par excellence and has been a very good actor-director of Konkani stage shows.

He made his first appearance in Wilfy Rebimbus' shows from the 75th Wilfy Nite and has been an integral part of the troupe since. Claud has written, directed, and acted in over 35 Konkani stage plays on social, historical and religious subjects, to his credit. He has produced 15 CD’s and has worked as a rhythm composer to albums of other artistes.

His sound and religious plays have brought him laurels. Sixty-year-old multi-talented Claud has won several honours and awards of which ‘Sandesha Award’ and Karnataka Sahitya Academy are notable.

Claud is grateful to his parents, his wife Marie and daughters Maushmi and Melissa for all the support and encouragement they have given him in his pursuit to excel in Konkani stage. He also recalls with gratitude the support given by his friends, well-wishers in his success.
