It is a coup of sorts by Jaya TV. It has managed to lure the biggest name in Tamil music to perform a concert for it.
Yes, Maestro Ilayaraja will perform a live-in concert in Chennai on 16 October titled Andrum Indrum Enrum for Jaya TV.
Speaking about the concert, Ilayaraja said, 'it was my conscious decision not to perform live concerts on stage after I took to spiritualism. I have held hardly half-a-dozen concerts so far in my career spanning two decades'.
But now he has said yes to Jaya TV.
So what prompted him to perform live this time? The music legend says, 'I was thrilled with people's response for my Symphony on Thiruvasagam.
At the audio release of the symphony recently there was a gate crash as people thronged in large numbers. Hence for them I have decided to hold this concert'.
Dwelling more, Ilayaraja said, 'it would be a unique concert for I have come up with new tunes for some of my earlier songs. A mega musical bonanza for my fans would be the concert', he adds.
It sure would be.
