Rafi-Shammi Era Live Orchestra in Sydney


Date: 24 September 2016

Time:  19:30–22:30h

Venue: C3 Conference Venue, Silverwater


The Sangeet Mehfil team is delighted to announce Saleem Zamaan’s 36th Annual Homage to his inspiration RAFI SAAB on Saturday, 24th September 2016 … this year, it is a double tribute!

The theme is “SHAMMI KAPOOR — The Golden Era of Trendy Film Music”. Some of the most romantic songs were introduced to the Indian Cinema during the Rafi-Shammi era.

Like last year, Saleem aims to meticulously orchestrate these trendy semi-westernised melodies (as close to the original as possible) with the support of a handpicked team of local, free-lance, multicultural, professional musicians, melodious co-singers and vibrant anchors who will also enlighten you with some interesting snippets from the Rafi-Shammi era.

This shradhhaanjali to the two Legends of Indian Cinema is not to be missed … it promises to be another memorable, trend-setting “concert with a difference”.

We are grateful for the support received last year to this annual event, and we seek the same spirit to encourage our professional “local” artistes to be able to create performance standards beyond expectations. Please feel free to invite like-minded friends from this event page.

Additional Notes:

VENUE – The conveniently located venue “C3 Conference Venue” in Silverwater provides an acoustically designed auditorium for 700+ Rafi-Shammi fans, and promises to deliver a unique symphony-feel with Saleem’s talented team.

DINNER – Delicious vegetarian and non-vegetarian dinner packs will be available for purchase in the general foyer at the venue from 6pm to 715pm. Food and drinks will not be allowed inside the auditorium.

PROGRAMME – The concert will begin at 730pm sharp (as usual) and finish by 1030pm, without a break.
