The ‘Mozart of Madras’

2010-11-19 00:00

THE ‘Mozart of Madras’, A.R. Rahman, brings his Jai Ho Concert: The Journey Home World Tour, to Durban’s Moses Ma-bhida Stadium at 8 pm on Friday, November 26.

It’s the first time that Rahman has performed in South Africa — and his show, with its big sets, spectacular sound and visual effects and cast of 35 world-class performers, promises to be a tour de force.

The A.R. Rahman Jai Ho Concert: The Journey Home World Tour has already travelled to over 20 major venues from New York to London, with millions of tickets sold around the globe.

Performing with Rahman are Indian playback singers Hariharan, Shweta Pandit, Javed Ali and Naveen; rap artist and playback singer Blaaze; singer Neeti Muhan; and flautist, Naveen. Dancers from So You Think You Can Dance complete the impressive line-up.

Rahman’s rise to prominence came when he captured the world spotlight last year for his work on the film score for Slumdog Millionaire winning a Golden Globe, two Academy Awards and two Grammys.

Tickets for the concert are available from Computicket. — Arts Editor.
