A Magical Evening by Rahman




A truly magical evening, of my life , witnessing "the God" perform live on stage ,with all the best singers in India

Hariharan , Chitra ,Chinmayee, Blaaze, Sivamani , Aslam Naresh Iyer, Tanvi, Rayhana and Ishrathi, Narayan, Neeti Mohan, Ujjaiyini, Benny Dayal and Sayonara were the elite crew to sing ..

Rahman started or rather exploded with Jaage Hain from
Guru(Jaage Hain,Barso Re,Tere bina,Mayaa Mayya) , moving on to
Rang De Basanti(Rooba Roo,Khalbali) ,
Jodha Akbar (Azeem OShah,JashnEbashra) ,Roja(Kathal Rojave ,Thamizha Thamizha) Bombay(Kannalane,Humma Humma) ,Minsara Kanavu(Vennilave) , SIVAJI(Athiradee,Sahana,The Boss Theme,Vaaji Vaaji) , DIl Se(Iru Pookal Kilai Mele) , ATM(Maduraikku Pogadhadi,Marlyn Manroe ) , Thiruda Thiruda(Veera Pandi Kottaiyile) and then the Grand Finale "Vande Mataram'


The unplugged session , when Rahman's keyboard had some technical snags ,and Hariharan suddenly took over , began to teach the audience some swaras and made the audience to forget themselves and sing ...Simply Incredible and unforgettable experience


The entire atmosphere was electrifying , with the crowd chanting "Rahman Rahman Rahman ..." and literally went berserk when Naresh Iyer,Blaaze and Rahman began the Athiradee song and moving on to the ever lasting Humma Humma from Bombay...

It was jus not music ..it was elixir from heaven to listen to such beautiful music and truly inspirational. I really feel sorry for all those Rahman fans out there who could afford to miss this spectacular concert by the maestro ..

A truly mind blowing , amazing performance by Rahman and all the singers .....
