It’s not everyday that you get to hear popular crooner Shibani Kashyap belt out hits “Sajna Aa Bhi Jaa”, “Ho Gayi Hai Mohabbat” and “Zinda Hoon Main” to a live audience and not pay a penny to be at the gig.
This weekend, experience music like never before at the KR Mangalam University presents Hindustan Times-DLF CyberHub Friday Jam Season 4, with Kashyap and Rangreza, an NCR-based corporate band, ready to rock and give the audience a sumptuous treat to feast on.
For Kashyap, who shot to fame with her debut album ‘Ho Gayi Hain Mohabbat’ and has since scored several playback hits in mainstream Bollywood, Gurgaon is “home away from home”, as her parents reside in the upscale Nirvana Country in Sector 50.
Apart from her popular Bollywood numbers, Kashyap will also croon chartbusters such as ‘Samjhawan’ from Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya and “Bulleya” from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. She will also present a soulful rendition of the Sufi number ‘Jugni’ and pay a musical tribute to the Indian Army with her self-composed number ‘Alvida’.
Kashyap said events such as HT Friday Jam testifies to how far music in India has evolved since she cut her teeth into the Pop scene as a breakthrough artiste.
“During my time, there weren’t any events such as Friday Jam for upcoming artistes to showcase their talent and serve notice. Opportunities were limited then. I am glad there has been a shift in the music scene in our country and now, upcoming musicians can perform on the same stage as established musicians. It gives them a sense of belonging and helps them build a fanbase with their performances,” Kashyap said.
Rangreza, last year’s Friday Jam winners, can’t wait to get the audience swinging to their tunes this year.
“Although we are not competing this year, the band is excited to be back at the Friday Jam and play to a live audience. The audience was highly appreciative of our performance last year and we hope to meet their expectations this year as well. Our songs will be a fusion of Sufi and Rock and we are busy compiling a list of songs that is sure to get the audience grooving,” Yuvraj Sharma, a member of the band, said.
The performances at the CyberHub amphitheatre will commence from 6.30pm onwards. Seats will be available on a first-come-first-serve basis.
