Hamid Daudani & Group
Who We Are
Hamid Daudani & Group has kept the Southeast Asian culture alive through its theatrical productions for over 20 years now. The Group was founded in 1991 by a few enthusiastic artists as a not-for-profit organization to serve the San Diego community, and that remains the goal for the years to come.
The group was founded by a core group of artists like Hamid Daudani, Nipul Shah, and Tushar Shah in 1991. Laila Daudani, Anita Daudani Bhakta Yamini Patel and Nadira Javaid became the backbone of the group right from the beginning and stayed committed for all these years. There were a few other artists like Bharat Shah, Alka Shah, Manoj Maniar, Sonal Sheth, Yogini Shah, etc. who contributed heavily to this new adventure for a number of years. They could not devote their time consistently due to other commitments. Some other members like Kamla Singh, Dolly Bakshai, etc. joined in and stayed with the group for a considerable length of time and moved away due to some personal reasons. Thankfully they were replaced by Mamta Malhotra, Zainab Ansari, Sameera Khan, etc.
Hamid Daudani and Nipul Shah, both founding members, have remained committed to the group year after year. Hamid has been writing, producing and directing plays throughout the years, as well as supporting all aspects of production. He has also acted in some of the plays and steered the group to maintain the highest quality of standards in presentation.
The group has earned a tremendous amount of respect from the local community and boasts of over fifty percent of repeat audience, year after year. It has also been praised for showcasing stories that appeal to a diverse audience. Wholesome entertainment for the entire family, quality productions, first class venues, timely presentations, and minute attention to all details have become trademarks for this art forum. The group commands the highest attendance in paid performances and has become an institution and a tradition in San Diego. So far more than 400 artists have participated in Group’s productions.
