Red Apple Events and Media organised ‘Mega Musical Journey’, in which one of the biggest stars of Indian music industry Shreya Ghoshal performed in the presence of more than 5,000 people.
The concert was opened with the performance by Shirin Latheef, a Keralite singer followed by singing of Dr Rashmi Madhu, a South Indian playback singer.
Ambassador of India to Qatar, P Kumaran, addressed the gathering.
Bollywood singing sensation Ghoshal fascinated her fans with her performance. More than 5,000 people went through a three-hour musical journey of the best of Bollywood; from the ‘80s and ‘90s to recent super-hits of A R Rahman and the best of Shreya.
Talking to The Peninsula, Shirin Latheef said: “I am from Kerala but was born and raised in Dubai. I recently started signing. The crowd is very different from Dubai, the vibes are very different and I really enjoyed performing in Doha. The year 2017 seems to be a good year and I am looking forward to perform more this year”
Dr Rashmi Madhu, a Qatar-based singer, said that it was her first-ever stage performance with a super star like Shreya Ghoshal. “The venue is absolutely comfortable. Qatar is a country where I began my singing career. I studied at MES Indian School and started my career with singing of ‘Ghazals’. I had a girls-only musical band named ‘The 90’s Gales’. This experience has been the most awaited-one.”
Event organiser, Jassim Muhammed, said: “We wanted to set new standards of South Asian concerts in Doha by giving people their value for money, state-of-the-art production, international level venue and a superb set. We are happy we have realised our dream and this mega musical journey will continue in future.”
Lively Shreya was an absolute pleasure to watch as she kept on interacting with the audience during the concert and her singing magic made them hum along.
She entertained her die-hard fans with her charm and great stage performance.
The queen of melody took the crowd’s energy to new heights with her opening number — Dewani Mastani — from the latest blockbuster Bajirao Mastani. She also sang her other popular hits such as Saans, Agar Tum Mil Jao and Barso Re.
