RD Burman

CHENNAI: If there was anyone who revolutionised Bollywood music, it was Rahul Dev Burman. From making Western beats an integral element of Hindi music to influencing a whole generation of music composers, R D Burman or Pancham Da was a seminal composer. As an ode to the colossus on his 75th birth anniversary on June 27, Cause events has organised ‘Remembering RD Burman...Amit Kumar Live In Concert’. The music event will present the best of RDB numbers that will be rendered by Amit Kumar Ganguly, a playback singer and the older son of the legendary Kishore Kumar, accompanied by his brother Sumit Kumar along with city-based singers Shekar, Jaya and Usha.

Amit Kumar, who holds RD Burman in high esteem and his illustrious father as inspirations, will offer his tribute to the man who gave him golden hits like bade acche lagte hai from Balika Badhu.

It is hard for anyone to single out one favourite from the vast range of works by RDB. From the realms of classical music to the terrific rhythm and scintillating pop numbers, RDB probably was a man of all seasons. If he could enthrall music lovers with the soulful beeti na beetayi raina from Parichay, he could inspire disco dancers with the quivering aaja aaja from Teesri Manzil. In sync with the mammoth contribution by the master composer, the programme will showcase the plethora of work by the legendary composer, including the best of all genres of music.

As with every activity undertaken by Cause Events, the live concert too has a charitable purpose. Each visitor to the concert can support the various projects taken up by Need Trust like the Karuna Sagar Hospice set up for providing a home and care for the terminally ill cancer patients, and the engagement to educate underprivileged and the disabled to employ them productively , eliminating their need to be dependent.

The concert will be staged at Kamaraj Arangam on June 27 from 7pm. Donor Passes for the above concert is priced at ` 1000, `750, ` 500 and ` 250. Available online at: and at  ‘antara’, no.1, 34th  St, 3rd  Avenue, Ashoknagar. Ph: 24715358. Passes will be available at the venue from 9 am on June 27.
