Bollywood Diva Sunidhi Chauhan in Auckland for ONE SHOW ONLY

Bollywood Diva Sunidhi Chauhan in Auckland for ONE SHOW ONLY

Unique Cars (NZ) Ltd and Team Masala Events & Entertainment in association with DJ Dave’s Entertainment are proud to present SUNIDHI CHAUHAN live in concert for ONE NIGHT ONLY, this Friday 23 June.

Believed to be one of the most versatile singers in today’s Indian Music Industry, Chauhan has been belting out songs for Bollywood box-office hits for over a decade, lending her voice for most of the leading actresses in Bollywood including Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra. During this time she has also garnered innumerable accolades, including being recognized as the Indian Industry’s Best Female Playback Singer at least eighteen times (having been nominated over fifty times).

In addition to her continued successes in Bollywood, Chahuan has collaborated with pop-star Enrique Iglesias on his song ‘Heartbeat (India Mix)’ which featured on his album Euphoria (Special Indian Edition), making her the first Indian female singer to collaborate internationally. She was also the only Indian artist asked to be a part of the Western Union ‘World of Betters’ campaign in collaboration with international recording artists Alicia Keys, K’Naan, (John Legend and Pitbull). The multi-faceted platform was designed to help raise awareness on the many ways we can impact on individual’s life. Chauhan moved her money to disadvantaged girls of Mumbai to help them discover their inner beauty.

Concert promoter Dave said: “We’ve waited eight long years to have her back and I for one, cannot wait for Friday. She is ‘it’ in Bollywood today as far as female playback singers go, and I love that I have the opportunity to promote the best.”

For New Zealand fans, the wait is over. India’s original ‘Desi Girl’ finally returns to the city of sails to make her fans ‘shut up and bounce’ along to what will surely be a night to remember.

Sunidhi Chauhan along with a 9-piece band and last year’s Indian Idol finalist, Rakesh Main will be performing for ONE NIGHT ONLY at Auckland’s Telstra Clear Pacific Events Centre in Manukau. Tickets are priced between $40 - $150 and a limited number are still available from Ticket Direct (0800 224 224).

Max Rashbrooke: Review - The NZSO And Nature

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
