IFFM Awards: Amaal Mallik becomes second Indian composer to perform with Melbourne Symphony Orchestra

MUMBAI: One of the youngest and most desirable performers of the music business in the Indian subcontinent, Amaal Mallik has been roped in to be the official performer at the IFFM Awards night, scheduled to be held on 8 August 2019. Amaal will be performing a medley of his most popular compositions and renditions at the iconic Palais Theatre.
 
Much prior to his performance, an ecstatic Amaal, says, “It’s nothing short of an honor 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.”
 
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, making Amaal the only other Indian composer to do this. This is a landmark collaboration given the immense popularity of Amaal Malik and the iconic status of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.
 
Festival director Mitu Bhowmick says, “Given Amaal’s popularity with every section of the audience, he was pretty much an obvious choice for us. It will be a gala evening filled with music that truly celebrates cinema from India. Given that it’s Melbourne, an Aussie twist had to be in order.”
