Mumbai gigs: City musicians to pay tribute to iconic British band Queen
A tribute by Mumbai musicians promises a night of songs by the iconic British band
If every karaoke session you've been a part of ends with a rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody, then this gig is a must for you. Mumbai-based musicians like Adil Manuel, Ronit Chaterji, Merlin D'Souza and Jehangir have come together to pay tribute to this iconic band, Queen, who continue to win over new fans every day, more due to their addictive melodies and haunting vocals than the recent movie on the band."
With tracks like Under Pressure, Killer Queen, and Bohemian Rhapsody on the menu, the musicians have rearranged the music, including the addition of a string quartet — two violins, a viola and a cello. They have also added saxophone in the smash hit, Another One Bites the Dust and a surprise jugalbandi between the sax and keytar in Fat Bottomed Girls. "We have aimed at internalising their intricate harmonies," says D'Souza.
