This audio visual and live tribute to the legendary Sachin Dev Burman, one of India's most versatile composers and an architect of the Golden era of Indian Film music will feature a narrator, multiple singers and one of the most accomplished live orchestras from India.

S D Burman was a true son of a soil.  His songs are very melodious and easy to hum and remember. He used a lot of folk music, not just from the North or Bengal, but from the all parts of India. Since folk music is easily acceptable, it made him a musician easy to appreciate.
He paid close attention to the scene, the heroine, the hero, what they were doing, why they were doing what they were doing and why they were singing at that moment. He was also careful about understanding the lyrics.

The show will be narrated by one of India's finest and sought after theater and film director Salim Arif ( Humsafar, Mirza Ghalib etc).
