By Bandook - July 23, 2019
Hitmaker Amaal Mallik has been roped as the official performer at the IFFM Awards, scheduled for August 8. He is expected to perform a medley of his most popular compositions and renditions at the Palais theatre.
Amaal will be joined for his performance with one for the world’s biggest and most reputed orchestras based in Melbourne: the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. The oldest orchestra in Australia, they’ve previously collaborated with the likes of Elton John and Hans Zimmer and AR Rahman before.
This makes Amaal the only other Indian composer apart from ARR to do this, making making Amaal the only other Indian composer to do this. This is a landmark collaboration given the iconic status of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.
An ecstatic Amaal says, “It’s nothing short of an honour for me to be collaborating with them. It’s a big moment and I want to deliver my very best for the evening. I have been shortlisting songs for the medley. There will be a few expected and some very unexpected choices from my end. I will spend a good few days to prepare for them before meeting the team in Melbourne.”>
