Jai Ho! The Journey Home, Dallas 2010

 

I just got back home from A.R.Rehman's "Jai Ho" concert and there were numerous Tamil songs. I enjoyed each one of those. What else would you expect from an Oscar winner who took a minute to speak in Tamil during his winning speech. 

The energy level of the musicians and the performers were high. The lighting, sound and the constantly changing back drop were an integral part of the concert. They brought 'waterless' rain on screen when the singers sang "Na re Na re". In another minute, with tweaks in backdrop, lighting, costumes and mood they transport you to Punjab, with the song, "Rang de Basanti".

The series that followed literally took you in spirit to the various celebrations around India like Holi, Mehandi, marriage and including a quick one on Ganesh Visarjan. With "Ye désh hai mera" and 'Bharat Humko", A.R.Rehman and Hariharan respectively touched a cord of nostalgia, especially those away from home. It was truly a journey back home.

Tanvi - The concert was not worth 4 hours of drive. I will watch out for Kensie next time I head to Macy's.

Shuchita & SG - There's always a better concert and a next time.
