The Melody Friends

On Sunday, the SSPMS grounds were choc-a-bloc with music lovers. Reason: The Dosti Concert by music duo Vishal-Shekhar. "The concert is a tribute to our 11 years of friendship. Music connects people. It is this spirit that they we want to recreate through this concert," they said before the show. They have worked with international artistes like Akon for Ra.One and Imogen Heap for The Dewarists. "Imogen Heap was interesting to work with. Her vocals and her immense passion for music was just amazing," said Shekhar. Speaking about their latest music project - The Dirty Picture , he added, "Our association with Bappi da , who has sung the song Ooh La La in the film, goes way back to Taxi No 9211. He was the best choice for this song. He's simply unbelievable once he's behind the microphone. Plus, the film required the 80's disco feel to it." Some of their other upcoming films include Dibakar Banerjee's Shanghai, Sujoy Ghosh's Kahaani and Karan Johar's Student of the Year. They are also composing music for a Marathi film. "Marathi music is very interesting. Ajay-Atul are our favourite artistes," the duo said.
