Rahman, Busta Rhymes and T-pain

A FAMOUS Indian composer, Golden Globe, Grammy and Oscar winner, A.R. Rahman, will be taking time out of his busy South African tour schedule to meet and greet fans at Suncoast Casino and Entertainment World in Durban on Thursday, November 25.

Rahman, who has redefined contemporary Indian music and won an Academy Award for his work on the film Slumdog Millionaire, will be performing in Durban on November 26 as part of his Jai Ho Concert: The Journey Home World Tour. Fans have the chance to get up close and personal with him at the East Coast Radio stage at Suncoast where he will sign autographs and pose for photographs from 6 pm.

Rahman’s Jai Ho: The Journey Home Tour has taken him to 16 cities around the world, and the South African leg forms part of the country’s celebrations to mark the arrival of the first Indian indentured labourers 150 years ago.

For his concert at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on November 26, which is being presented by Hunta Live Productions in association with DSTV Indian and East Coast Radio, the man known as the “Mozart of Madras” will be joined by 35 world-class performers, including Indian playback singers Hariharan, Shweta Pandit, Javed Ali and Naveen; rap artist and playback singer Blaaze, singer Neeti Muhan and flautist, Naveen; and dancers from So You Think You Can Dance.

Tickets for the show — which promises to have all the panache of Bollywood — are available at Computicket. The public appearance at Suncoast is free.
