We are using cutting edge technology to reach listeners and viewers, across the world, and it’s always fun to be the first.”
Shekhar Ravjiani is nothing but excited, not only because of it being the first concert like this ever done, but also because it is bringing new energy to their songs, “We are really excited to be a part of the first ever concert taking place on the mobile, with a simulcast over the web. This is fantastic medium to reach out to all our listeners across the world. This is the first time in our 11 year career we will perform our songs unplugged.
