For a concert in about two days. The city welcomes us with showers and 6* celcius. So far so cold.
And for one of the first times I am meeting up with some of my clients here so that way, this has been a trip that I have looked forward to for more than one reason.
Alongwith me are Bosskey and his team comprising of Nanee, Prasad, Satish and T D Balu who would be keeping the audience entertained with their plays and singers M J Shriram and Krish. The VIPs of this event would be Khusboo and Mr Sundar C.
Apart from singing I am slated to chew a few lines in Bosskeys plays. Excuse the apostrophe in the previous line, I am simply unable to find it in this keyboard and I am not sure yet whether I can get my mac wired. Its been exactly about an hour since we landed and the host-s house is teaming with people.
Performing in shows abroad keeps me amazed for a lot of things and the most important among them is how the hosts find the enormous energy to organize the entire thing AND host us at the same time. Japan has a very small community of Tamils and this is hosted for a group of about 500 people alone and some Japanese. Truly if art survives, its because of such patrons. In olden days the rulers did their part, if they had an iota of art appreciation in them and now it is because of such people all over the world. And they rule our hearts. Because when on stage, they are the audience is the only thing that matters to me. Of course it would help if the sound were good too. The energy is purely amazing. Mr Ganesan Hari has been coordinating this from the start though I have met him but once he traveled with us to make sure everything is in order
Shall be posting pictures soon. Watch this space and of course stay tuned to Aahaa FM if you are in the reception area.The show definitely does go on.
