Crooning his romantic numbers

Thrilled fans

Enthralling music fans, KK (Krishnakumar Kunnath) performed at ‘Alive India In Concert’ at Phoenix Marketcity recently.

The concert was jam-packed and fans varying from youngsters to the elderly, were looking forward to hear their favourite songs from the list of 500 and above songs that the artiste has sung in his musical career.

From the moment he stepped on the stage, KK made sure that the crowd looking from the different floors of the mall waved and danced to his tunes. Apart from dancing and applauding, the fans also expressed their excitement in a special way, by flashing their mobile lights.

The concert started with Sach keh raha hain, Awarapan, and progressed to songs like Tu hi meri shab hai, Yaaron dosti badi hi haseen hain, Aashayein, Zara si dil mein, and other popular numbers. KK also tried to add titbits before each song, which left some guessing about the next number to follow, while many others hummed the song before KK started singing.

Most of his fans were dying to shake his hand, and crowded around the stage,
despite the initial organised seating arrangement.

Talking about his performance, KK says, “It’s always nice to perform in Bangalore. The audience matters for every performer and the crowd here is stupendous.”

The audience was bubbling with excitement till the end of the concert. Appreciating the energy of the concert, Suprita Ramaswamy, an elderly citizen, commented that the music brought back memories of the past two decades. “Often one relates music to their memories, and KK’s performance was heart-warming,” she says.

Another audience member, Padmini, who had come with her family, says, “It was fun to see even sari-clad elderly women trying to get a glimpse of the artiste by climbing up the chairs. The way he kept the audience involved was amazing.”

This concert, which is part of a bigger concept, hopes to make a space for music, says Supratik Ghosh, founder and music composer of city-based band Aurko. He says, “We have always dreamt of creating Bangalore as India’s music destination.

There are destinations for drama or theatre, but never for music. And this became a pertinent problem, when Palace Grounds was also closed to musical
performances.”
