  Shankar-Jaikishan Forever

A Niche Entertainment (Milind Oak) presentation, the multimedia production pays tribute to the musical genius of the duo that entertained masses for three decades with their Raaga-Jazz style of music in Hindi films.

Shankar-Jaikishan ruled the Indian Film Music industry with compositions which were remarkable in concept and immensely successful. The duo was considered even more important and sellable than the stars of the movies for which they composed the music.

Remember the melodies from movies like Barsat, Basant Bahar, Awara, Chori Chori, Shri 420, Daag, Patita, Dil Ek Mandir, Dil Apna Aur Preet Parayee, Junglee, Professor, Teesri Kasam, Arzoo, Sangam, Jis Desh Menin Ganga Behti Hai, An Evening in Paris, Mera Naam Joker, and the list goes on and on and on….

The concert explores different shades of duo’s compositions- from pure classical to orchestral Jazz- with the powerful narration by Prithvi Theater fame Salim Arif. The versatile singers Vibhavari Joshi, Dhawal Chandwadkar, Neha Verma, and Rafi Habib are accompanied by an accomplished live orchestra.
