Musician-singer Adnan Sami returns to Britain after three years and promises to wow Londoners this weekend when he performs with his full live orchestra Oct 18 and 19.
He will be accompanied by co-artists Monali Thakur, who came ninth in "Indian Idol 2" and Indian playback singer Javed Ali, who has shot to fame in 2007 when he sang "Ek Din Teri Raahon Mein" from the movie "Naqaab".
The show will also host eight other professional Bollywood dancers who will be dazzling the audience with their fantastic moves, according to Asian News.
Adnan graduated from the University of London and developed his musical style and technique on the piano and evolved a new sound which he pioneered and ultimately introduced to the world. Adnan became the first person to play Indian classical music on the electric piano.
He is also popularly referred to as the fastest keyboard player in the world. This observation was first made by Swedish Radio and Television Broadcasting.
Adnan was featured in a documentary commissioned by the Foreign and Common Wealth Office of Great Britain as being amongst the 10 most famous names from the subcontinent of India and Pakistan, who have influenced Asian culture in Britain over the last 50 years.
