One of Bollywood’s most popular playback singer with hit songs, such as Tu cheez badi hai mast mast, Nimboda and Mera Piya Ghar Aya, will be coming to Bradford this Saturday to perform along side Dr L Subramaniam.
Kala Sangam and Picturehouse at the National Science and Media Museum present a rare opportunity to see not one, but two superstars of world music in Bradford.
Dr L Subramaniam is an award winning violinist who has produced over two hundred recordings and performed across the world, some of which were collaborations with legends in both Indian and Western music including Yehudi Menuhin, Stevie Wonder and Herbie Hancock. It will be the very first time Dr L Subramaniam will be performing in Yorkshire, making it a historic performance.
Dr L Subramaniam also brings outstanding Mridangam and Tabla performers Dhulipala Srirama Murthy (Mridangam) and Tanmoy Bose (Tabla) for this one-off event. Between them, they have won Grammy Awards and have composed music for classical orchestras, ballets and award-winning feature films.
Joining Dr L Subramaniam ahead of the concert will be Mrs Kavita Krishnamurthy Subramaniam who will make a special guest appearance to perform a welcome song to open the event.
Kavita is the recipient of four Filmfare Best Female Playback Singer awards. Accolades for her include the “Best Singer of the Millennium” award at the Stardust Millennium 2000 Awards, a Zee Cine Award 2003 for Dola Re Dola from international hit movie Devdas, and she is a two time recipient of the Bollywood Award.
Kavita was the main featured soloist in the “Global Fusion” album released by Warner Bros, featuring musicians from five different continents. She has sung as a solo artist with orchestras such as the Beijing Symphony Orchestra, Leipzig Philharmonic and London Symphony Orchestra.
The event is taking place on Saturday 25 November at Pictureville Cinema, National Science and Media Museum. Tickets cost £20 with concessions for families.
