In about three weeks from now, music lovers in London can expect the musical treat of their lives as Maestro Ilaiyaraaja is all set to perform live in London. The mega event has been scheduled on the evening of Saturday, the 24th August.
For all practical purposes, this would be the first time that the Maestro would be performing live in Europe. Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan is likely to take part in this grand event and appear on stage along with the Maestro. Singing legend S.P. Balasubrahmanyam, Jayachandran, S.P. Shailaja, Karthik, Chinmayi and many other playback singers would be singing songs live at the event in Maestro’s music. Maestro’s sons Karthik Raja and Yuvan Shankar Raja are also expected to be present on the occasion.
Kamal Haasan might sing a song or two at the event. Besides his acting prowess and film-making instincts, Kamal is also a good enough playback singer and has song some amazing numbers in Maestro’s music. Songs sung by Kamal in films such as Thevar Magan and Guna are considered as one of Maestro’s all-time greats.
Titled aptly as ‘Rajadhi Raja’, the tickets for the event are selling like hot cakes as Londonites gear up in anticipation to welcome the Maestro and his composing and singing troupe!
