Hundreds of fans can expect a great night on 2 November
Sydney will be treated to the Karthik Music Experience on 2 November at Town Hall. The event promoter is none other than Soorya Australia’s president Sudhir Das, although the Karthik show will not be a Soorya event. Sudhir was approached by the Raman Pillay Group of Companies to do this event.
Sudhir and Soorya are well known to lovers of Indian classical arts in Sydney. Since 2002 Sudhir has been organising classical shows in Australia.
“Promoting the classical arts may not be profitable but Sydney’s Indian community has a need for have artistic shows,” says Sudhir. Being Soorya’s local representative it is not surprising that Sudhir doesn’t mix art with commercial genres of music, dance and entertainment. Accordingly, the Karthik Musical Experience will be Sudhir’s event, but not a Soorya concert.
“Over the past decade, Karthik has emerged as one of the most dynamic performers from India that the world has seen,” says Sudhir. Trained as a traditional Carnatic music vocalist from a young age, Karthik went on to become one of the most successful playback singers in Indian cinema. And, it is this extraordinary journey as an artist that inspired his genre-fusing live performances.
Karthik has been the voice behind spectacularly successful anthems. He also frequently collaborates with composers like A.R. Rahman and Yuvan Shankar Raja. Karthik is well-known for pushing musical boundaries.
Accompanying Karthik him will be Sakthisree Gopalan, another newcomer who has stormed the film industry with her stirring performances of songs “Nenjukulle” (Kadal, 2013) and “Enga Pona Raasa” (Maryan, 2013). The all-star cast of Indian musicians that will be performing alongside Karthik are: bass guitarist Keith Peters, percussionists Vikram R. and Daya Sankar, pianist Navneeth Sundar, guitarist Vijay Joseph and flutist Ravi Kulur.
The show will also boast Karthik’s signature live wire act that bring him up close and personal with audiences, a fan friendly style that has made him a favourite across India.
The show is expected to attract huge numbers of contemporary popular music enthusiasts.
