Sukhwinder Singh returns to the UAE on Friday after three years to perform with his fellow playback singer Alka Yagnik.
Singh is best-known for his performance of the Academy Award-winning song Jai Ho (2010),composed by A R Rahman for the movie Slumdog Millionaire. Yagnik is as popular for her classical singing as she is for her work in Bollywood, and is a seven-time winner of the Filmfare Award for Best Female Playback Singer. The two will headline Taal, a concert organised by Ccreanss Communication.
“This is the first time that Alka and I will perform together,” said Singh. “I will be in Dubai after almost three years and with a totally new look and sound. It will be a performance not to be missed.”
When asked which songs he plans to sing, Singh said: “I only decide on the opening song. After that, the set is based on the reaction I get from the audience. This is a live show, so it should be interactive.” Singh said he will open with an A?R Rahman tune from the forthcoming film Raanjhanaa.
• Taal is on Friday at 9.30pm at Sheikh Rashid Hall, Dubai World Trade Centre. Tickets cost from Dh100. Call 050 225 4010 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
