Sambhar Mafia - Cooked To Kill!

Monday, October 03, 2005

After ARR, it’s Ilayaraja’s turn to perform live

Maestro Ilayaraja will be performing at the Nehru Indoor Stadium, Chennai on 16th October and this show will be telecast live on Jaya TV. Unfortunate ones like me will have to wait till the VCD is released.

What could be a greater joy than enjoying the festival with a music provided by none other than the maestro himself. Maestro Ilayaraja will render a live concert at Jawaharlal Nehru Indoor Stadium in Chennai on 16th October for Jaya TV.

Dubbed as 'Maestro-Live In Concert', the musical show will showcase the coming together of seasoned playback singers singing the tunes of Ilayaraja.

'With I taking a plunge into spiritualism, my interests towards performing live-in-concerts have decreased considerably. When my Symphony on Thiruvasakam was released recently, music-lovers gathered in large numbers and there was a huge queue waiting outside the venue to have a glimpse of the event. This prompted me to hold a concert for my ardent fans. This has resulted in me joining hands with Jaya TV for this musical show'.

Who's who of Kollywood would gather on the occasion to shower their appreciation on the music composer, he added.


  • Going to be a feast.!! One reason for me to subscribe to jaya TV via Num TV.

  • Great news. Raja used to do a lot of live concerts (With Gangai Amaran's troupe) in the 80's and early 90's. Would be keen to know who are the singers (Since the best of his songs have been sung by SPB,Yesudas,Janaki,Chitra).

  • This is rocking! The lack of digitalized recorded beats in ilayaraja's songs are a treat to hear esp at this time...and I would give anything for his numbers with actor Mohan in it...

  • Look out especially for these two pieces, which IR performed in his Live In Italy concert in 2004
    a) 3-in-1: a stunning composition by the Maestro in which he has used only 3 notes or swaras
    b) Mood Kaapi: A brilliant instrumental rendition of the Malayalam song "Thumbi Vaa" from the film Olangal, based on Kaapi raaga as the title suggests.

  • @Cogito,

    @Chennai Chatter,

  • Amazing would be the show with the stage filled with instumentalists. I will personally be happy to see Sivamani on drums, Viji Manuel on Keys, Sada on Guitar, Sasi on Bass, Purushotam on percussion arrgmt., Sundararaj on vocals arrgmnt., Arunmozhi on flute/vocals and the whole violin ensemble.

    Also it is first Major concert of the Maestro happening in India. One another being in Malaysia, three in Srilanka.
