Oscar winner musician A. R. Rahman (SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE) appears to be focusing on international live concerts.
In January alone, he is giving three live performances and all are out of India. Starting with a live concert on January eight at Doha (Qatar), he will give two-and-a-half hour outdoor free and exclusive music-dance performance involving over 40 Bollywood dancers-singers-musicians near Sydney (Australia) on January 16. On January 21, he will showcase another live concert in Muscat (Oman).
Rahman is also using social networking sites to promote it.
Rahman, who has reportedly recorded sales of over 300 million, was called "Mozart of Madras” by Time magazine. Rahman sees music "as a way to connect to spirituality and embrace it" and for "creating harmony in troubled times".
