Bradman kin, Rahman may sing together

Two great names could come together on a Sydney stage soon. A Bradman may join A.R. Rahman to make history on August 24 at the All Phones Arena. Greta Bradman, granddaughter of the legendary Australian batsman, is herself on the road to stardom as an accomplished soprano.

The forces behind the Sydney leg of Madras Mozart’s highly anticipated 5-city tour Rahmanishq are trying their best to bring the two great legends together.
Rahman, composer, singer-songwriter, music producer and musician, needs no introduction to Indian fans who will see his shows of great music aligned with techno-wizardry in Kolkata (Salt Lake Stadium, Oct. 1), Visakhapatnam (Indira Priyadarshni Cricket Stadium, Oct 12), Jaipur (Bhawani Niketan Education Trust, Oct. 20) and Ahmedabad (Sardar Patel Stadium, Oct. 27). Greta is being celebrated as “one of Australia’s finest young singers” and a “thrilling young award winning soprano who is going places”. Her stage presence has already captivated audiences in Australia and New Zealand and in Europe.
This may be once in a life time opportunity for the budding soprano for Greta, a trained psychologist who does not practice anymore as she is wedded to her music career, is to go away to Cardiff to study in a couple of months. The NRI putting together the show in Sydney told DC that there was a fair chance of bringing off the conjunction of two great names. A representative of Rapport Global Events, collaborator with Rahman, would not confirm whether Greta is on board the Sydney show as she awaits word from the Oscar-winning music director. Don Bradman set foot in India only in transit in Kolkata airport as a journalist going to England to cover the 1953 tour although he did wave to hundreds of onlookers from on board the ship carrying his 1948 Invincibles from England to Australia after a stop in Colombo.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
