Maestro Ilayaraja has been so busy composing tunes that he hardly found time to go for concerts. Come September, the legendary composer will be on a US tour to perform live in five cities. He will be accompanied by a battalion of over 50 musicians and a few well-known playback singers.
The event is being organised by Kalalaya USA, and according to the organisers, it is being arranged to commemorate Ilayaraja’s rare feat of composing music for over 1000 films. The cities he will perform live include Bay Area, Dallas, Atlanta, New Jersey and Washington DC.
He will present songs from his popular Tamil, Telugu and Hindi albums. In 2013, he performed for the first time in the US.
