By Manju Mittal

Here is a little sneak review of a mesmerising concert. An evening that made you dance with performers staging an absolutely amazing show of graceful dance moves with style, energy and spirit.  As a perfect pre Holi treat for music lovers in Sydney, Fame Events brought together a fantastic line-up of singers from India, Fiji and Pakistan. Bollywood buffs of Sydney gathered and enjoyed the fascinating Bollywood blast a mix of glitz, dance and glamour evening on Saturday February 24, 2018 at the Diamond Showroom, Blacktown Workers Club.

Well known anchor, event organiser and host of Sur Sangam Radio Nitin Madan, who needs no introduction, was the emcee of the incredible night. Nitin warmed up the audience and welcomed artists of the evening and introduced each and every artist while describing their special attribute. Sydney’s very own Saaz band and well known singer JP Jagpreet Grover, opened the show when he performed Ustad Rahet Fateh Ali Khan’s hit song ‘Mere rashke Qamar’. The audience sang along as JP, Sydney refers to him lovingly, began engaging the audience.  Merina Suresh took the stage next and her rendition of ‘Choli ke peeche kya hai’ was a standout.

A lively figures on stage Chirasmita’s ‘Dil cheez kya hai’ from movie ‘Umaro Jaan’, Sydney’s rising star Vishal’s Atif Aslam popular number and Khushboo’s song form movie ‘Henna’,  it was the biggest sing along of the night. Many talented singers Shailesh, Avish, Jarvis, Alanka, Cherry, Harmit, Dilip Bhave, Sadiq and Chaithra all entertained with their beautiful romantic songs.

Organiser Manjit Singh Chopra said, “Music is a very effective and positive tool to promote peace & joy to people around us. We feel privileged and proud to deliver such delightful ‘showcase’ with the help of our community members.”

The show ended with a thunderous applause with audience begging for more. I have attended many concerts from different cultures and nationalities, but this concert ‘Unity Bollywood Concert’ was something different. It was a special evening and fantastic efforts from the local artists of Sydney. Holi festival is the best time for this because it’s the biggest cultural celebration in Sydney’s calendar, and what better way to bring people together than music.
