All about Paree Forever - Suneeta Rao
Main Artist: Suneeta Rao
From PAREE, which made her a household name, to WAQT, her latest album, Suneeta Raos journey over the last twenty years has endeared her to audiences as the Paree of the Masses - one of India `s most loved performing artistes.
Her current live act has Suneeta Rao performing with a LIVE BAND. It can best be described as Pop Fusion and will include songs from her fifth solo album WAQT, plus new versions of Suneeta Raos classic hits such as Paree Hoon Main and Ab Ke Baras, as well her own versions of popular cover tunes. This Ragabased repertoire will be performed by Suneeta, with an All Star Line Up from Mumbai including Gino Banks (drums), Sangeet Haldipur (piano, keys and backing vocals), Ravi Iyer (guitar), Rushad Mistry (bass) and Shadaab Bhartiya (tablas, percussion).
The title song, Waqt, was recorded with the legendary drummer Lenny White (Miles Davis Bitches Brew, Chic Correa Electric Band) and has Carnatic music influences. There is also a Punjabi dance tune with a bump and grind groove that will appeal to all ages. The breezy Ye Dooriyan has a hypnotic, lounge feel, while Lage More Nain is a soaring ballad inspired by a Thumri about love and longing. The groovy Aaj Mohe is sure to bring the audience to the dance floor.
Established as one of the top performing acts in the country, Suneeta is a high-energy, multi-lingual, live wire performer, famous for her versatility with both Western and Indian music genres. The combination of superb production values and her unique ability to encourage audience participation makes this an unforgettable live experience.
