A Musical Night

You can’t ask for a better evening than this. Going to a live performance is always a great experince. This was the forth time, I enjoyed a celebrity concert. Earlier three were of  Shreya Ghoshal, Indian Ocean Band and Mohit Chauhan concerts. But watching Shankar-Ehsan-Loy perform live was altogether a different experience. Thanks to my friend Ashish, I got chance to attend the concert.

Shankar-Ehsan-Loy, the trio has given some beautiful music in past few years.  Also Shankar Mahadevan is a great singer and that adds more quality. Moreover the ambience was set in superb way and as soon as I entered the hall, first word that came out was ‘wow’. We reached the place at perfect time when all the testing had been done and they were getting ready to perform. We had some snacks and were ready to follow the beats.

The show started with the blockbuster hit ‘Dil Chahta Hai” title song. The beats of drum were making me tap my feet. The crowd was gathered near the stage and we headed towards it after first song. So, here I was watching Shankar Mahadevan perform just from 5 feet distance. He is a great singer and it was demonstrated in every single song, he sang. The song was followed by ‘Wake up Sid’ title song. Again a popular number and atmosphere was simply great. The crowd was shouting for ‘rock on’ but they kept them for later section.

Then the next song from his musical box was  Mitwa. A nice melody and he invovled crowd in singing too. The connection with the audience was established immediately. Then Shankar displayed his classical skills with some combination with instruments. He also sang a telgu, a tamil and a marathi song. He also introduced 2-3 more singers one of them were Anusha who is the singer of song Lazy Lamhe. She rocked the stage with the song ‘Yeh Mera Dil pyar ka Deewana’.

The next few songs that lined up were all briliant composition like rock on, where’s the party tonight and the famous breathless song. The last section was the greatest where he had kept his best. He started with Kajarare and every one was forced to dance. Next was “Meri laundry ka ek bil”l from rock on and the show was concluded by “suno gaur se duniya walo”. The last three songs were the greatest in terms of fun, energy level and crowd involvement.

The concert will remain in my memory for always. It was a great sight to watch the musician whose music we admire, perform live so brilliantly. Seeing a live performance has been a great experience. My next desire is going to AR Rahman’s concert. When he is coming to city ? Any Idea ? 🙂
