Rahman to pay tribute to his homeland Tamil Nadu

New Delhi, Dec 30 (UNI) Oscar awardee A R Rahman is all set to pay tribute to his homeland, Tamil Nadu, in a concert marking his 25-year-long musical journey.

After his performance at the IIFA 2017 in New York, which marked the beginning of his celebration of completing 25 years, Rahman will hold a concert in his home city of Chennai on January 12, 2018.

The A R Rahman concert, being presented by 7UP and produced by Wizcraft International Entertainment, will see the Grammy award winner celebrate his 25-year musical journey, paying tribute to Tamil Nadu, and taking audiences through his ‘Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, ‘Netru Indru Naalai’.

In a statement, Rahman said, 'the past 25 years have been truly incredible. It has been a beautiful journey and I am grateful to my fans as I look forward to perform in Chennai, my home city. The people of Tamil Nadu are always special and performing before them in my 25th year is a privilege. I’d like to say ‘thank you’ to all of them on this occasion.'

The concert, which will take audiences through Rahman's musical expedition, will feature artistes like singer Neeti Mohan, Carnatic vocalist Haricharan, multi-lingual composer Vijay Prakash and Indo-American music producer Sid Sriram.

Speaking about the concert, Wizcraft International director and Co-Founder Sabbas Joseph said, “We have had the opportunity to work with A R Rahman on several projects including the launch of ‘Vande Mataram’ at the celebrations of 50 years of Indian Independence and then more recently the premiere of his 25-year celebration at the Metlife Stadium in New York."

"The concert before his home fans is a truly exciting opportunity because they have followed and encouraged him through this entire journey and he is their pride. We are grateful to Rahman for giving us the opportunity to produce and promote this celebration," Joseph said.
