The band will feature Gino Banks on the drums, Rhys D’Souza on the saxophone, Avishek Dey on bass and Kush Upadhyay on guitar. The concert is titled ‘Soul2Soul’ and the band will perform a wide range of songs across genres in English Retro, R&B, Commercial Pop and Hindi Pop, and promises audiences to make it a musical evening filled with nostalgia. Dalip Tahil himself will be performing on eight to ten songs in both Hindi and English including a few duets with Pop icon of the 90’s – Shweta Shetty.

“Prior to entering the film industry, I was a theatre artist and many of the plays were English musicals. Many people may not know this but I have sung in the London stage musical – Bombay Dreams, the songs of which have been composed by AR Rahman. Shweta, Louiz and I go a long way back and are very passionate about music. With Soul2Soul we are introducing our band and hope to continue playing and organizing such concerts for the love of pop and jazz,” says Dalip Tahil.

Bombay Dreams was produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber who has written musicals like Phantom of the Opera, Cats, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Evita. The late theatre actor-director Alyque Padamsee had adapted Evita in 1999 for the Mumbai stage in which Dalip Tahil had played the role of the fabled Argentinian revolutionary Che Guevara.

“I am both excited and a tad nervous because I am doing too many things at the same time. With God’s grace, I have been occupied with new projects that are web based series. If our debut performance strikes a chord with the audiences, we’ll be more than happy to perform again. We are here because of our passion for music and if music aficionados like us and demand another concert we will oblige,” concludes Dalip Tahil.
