CHENNAI: It was a soul-stirring performance by Hariharan and group, as the singer embarked on a musical voyage at an event by Prestige Group for their upcoming villa Silver Springs on the Sholinganallur-ECR link road.

With melodious tracks ranging from ghazals to classical music to western fusion, Hariharan ensured that they gave a fully loaded musical performance. Singing mega hit numbers in Hindi, Tamil and western-classical fusion, Hariharan did not forget to add his equally famous ghazal magic to his concert.

Carnatic music also found a prominent place. Krishna Nee Begane, a composition beautifully delivered with various superbly knotted swaras and brigas and left the audience awe-struck. Hariharan’s son Akshay Hariharan joined the live performance by providing it a western colour. He sang the English version of the classical number, which found huge popularity among the gathering. 

He ensured that he made the audience relish the mesmerising brigas and the soul-stirring Yaman Kalyan. A few other famous songs from Tamil films sung by Hariharan and group included Nejukul Peithidum Maamazhai from Vaaranam Aayiram, Kurukku Sirithavale from the 1999 blockbuster Mudhalvan and Vaaji Vaaji from Rajini-starrer Sivaji.

Hindi music lovers weren’t left out, as he took them on a delightful trip with Chanda Re Chanda re from Sapnay.

Hariharan’s  musical extravaganza livened more specifically because of the judicious mix of all the genres that the National Award winning singer is adept at.

A visibly delighted audience participated with enthusiasm in the event. Hariharan interacted with the gathering over the course of the concert to add more fervour to the musically-loaded evening.
