“And the show must go on” – Anonymous
Pax Vobiscum, pilgrims!
Sunday evening saw, against the odds, an outstanding performance by Pakistani musician Atif Aslam, with dance troupe ‘Bolly Flex‘, led by Naz Choudhrey, who coincidentally, organised said proceedings of ‘Dhamaka 2012‘ at the London 02 Arena.
I’m not going to claim that I know any of Mr Aslam’s songs, because I don’t. Quite frankly, I was more concerned with trying to get shots in a pit filled with more people and their mobile phones pointing & shooting. It was like a free for all picnic! 02 Arena security, normally notorious for stopping people in the pit without proper credentials, could do ‘nadda’ (At one point, I actually got thrown out of the pit, despite being one of the official photographers during the concert!). But hey, this isn’t a rant of such. And since this site is more pictorial than words & such, here’s a small preview of how the show panned out. Let’s just say that Atif had the audience eating out of the palm of his hands…
and yes, those Bolly Flex dudes can dance without the stereotyping…
Ever get that feeling when a performer, at the end of the show, knows that he/she has nailed it?
