An exciting virtual music concert of the Amazon Original Series, Bandish Bandits has been announced to celebrate the release of the musical drama. Directed by Anand Tiwari, Bandish Bandits follows the story of Radhe and Tamanna. Radhe is a singing prodigy determined to follow in the classical footsteps of his grandfather. Tamanna is a rising pop sensation desperate to become India’s first international popstar. Radhe’s world is turned upside down when he falls in love with Tamanna. Torn between helping her achieve superstardom and staying true to his own music and his family’s legacy, will he succeed in juggling both at the risk of losing everything he has?
The concert will be headlined by composers Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and will feature acts by some of the most popular names from the Indian music industry such as Armaan Malik, Jonita Gandhi, Prateek Kuhad, Shivam Mahadevan, Mame Khan and Pratibha Singh Baghel. Presented as a special offering a day prior to this year’s Prime Day event, the virtual musical extravaganza is open for all and will stream live on August 5 on Amazon Prime Video’s official Facebook and YouTube page. A melange of classical and pop music, the concert will feature songs from Bandish Bandits’ much loved soundtrack along with other hits by Prateek Kuhad and Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.
“We have received an overwhelming response to the soundtrack of Bandish Bandits”, said Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, “The album is a seamless amalgamation of classical and pop music and features some of the most extraordinary melodies from Indian classical music alongside some really peppy tracks.
