Rahman to perform at YMCA

Come 30 December, A R Rahman will enthrall his fans with a live-in concert in Chennai. Titled Thaai Mannae Vanakkam, the concert will feature Rahman and his team giving 30 best songs for Jaya TV. The Mozart of Madras says, ”I was waiting for t

he right opportunity and it took so long years for me to perform only Tamil songs. Few did not like me presenting a mixture of songs from other languages during my concerts. So, TMV will feature only Tamil songs from Roja till Kadal.’

A total of 30 songs have been planned and I would sing four to five songs. Playback singers S P Balasubramanium, Chitra, Hariharan and present generation singers will be part of the live concert,’ said Rahman. Several musicians are being flown in from foreign countries to perform at the TMV concert. This will include five female drummers from London.
