Did you know that that this brother and sister duo has performed more in Hyderabad
than at any other city in India? And the reason that they come back so often is
that they absolutely love this city. They were here again on the 21st of October,
and it was without a doubt a night to remember. It just wasn't the show that was
enthralling - the entire event was well organized, and the use of state-of-the-art
technology made this evening of music a grand success.
The show kicked off with a rap and reggae performance by John, a Hyderabadi who
has performed with big names like Shaggy (of Boom Shakalaka fame). He lived up
to his reputation of being one of the best rappers in India. He dished out some
of the best rap and reggae songs of the recent years.
Then it was time for the stars of the evening, Shaan and Saagarika, to take the
center-stage. This talented brother and sister have been singing from the age
five, and apart from having cut a few hit albums, they have even sung for hit
movies like Parinda. It was with the touching song Ma that Saagarika started
the evening, and Shaan warmed up with his song Gumsum from his latest album
Tanha. Then it was time to party with songs that were peppy and rhythmic. And
the crowd couldn't resist but dance the night away.
'Groove', the band from Mumbai that accompained the duo, deserves a special mention.
There music was simply scintillating, and the huge video screens on either side
of the stage made the musical ambience even better. Sohail, precise and polite,
was the ideal as compere for the show. All in all, it was a great way to spend
your Saturday evening.
