All original track singers of A.R.Rahman’s compositions will assemble on a single stage to pay tribute to his music here on February 28. ‘Rahmania’, the musical tribute to Rahman, would be held at the Wesley High School grounds in Royapettah. Singers including Benny Dayal, Srinivas, Suresh Peters, Naresh Iyer, Haricharan, Swetha Menon, Sujatha and Suvi Suresh will belt out numbers which they originally sang for Rahman, during the three-hour show.
The director of the show, Praveen Mani, told mediapersons here on Tuesday that it would be Chennai’s tribute to the Oscar and Grammy winner. “The show is about friendship, about good music and a good cause,” he said.
The proceeds would go towards providing facilities for children of V-Excel Educational Trust, a centre that offers educational opportunities for children with autism, dyslexia and mental retardation.
Pointing out that it has been an honour to be part of Rahman’s journey, singer Srinivas said “Compositions of a few legends end up not in records, but in people’s hearts. We will try to musically cover most of his journey right from 1992 to 2010.” For details contact: 9841016161 or 9840047101.
