The two times Oscar Award Winner & Music Composer AR Rahman, played numerous medleys from various Indian musical styles, including some of his most well-known songs like Jai Ho from the British Drama Film Slumdog Millionaire.
Rahman’s concert, which was organised by DMY Creation, also included appearances by famous drummer Drums Sivamani, playback singers Hariharan, Shweta Mohan, AR Ameen, AR Reihana and a number of other renowned performers from India. The concert took place at the National Stadium Bukit Jalil Kuala Lumpur.
While the audience were enjoying the concert, Siti Nurhaliza, who is known to be one of the most favorite and popular singers in Malaysia performed for Tamil classic duet “Munbe Vaa” together with an Indian vocalist Haricharan.
