Dhoom Production brings together two star Bollywood musicians, multi-award winning singer, composer and actor Sonu Nigam from India, and Atif Aslam, the Pakistani pop and rock singer-songwriter, dancer and film actor who is also a household name in India. They will perform together at H-E-B Center at Cedar Park Saturday, October 1st.

About Sonu Nigam:

Sonu Nigam, gave his first public performance at the age of 4. At 18, he began training with classical maestro Ustad Ghulam Mustafa Khan and subsequently moved to Mumbai to try his luck in Bollywood. It was in the mid-1990s that Nigam started to come into his own and found fame with the song “Sandese Aate Hain� from the 1997 war drama Border. Nigam has composed the score for four feature-length films, as well as having had his own tracks played in many others films. His pop-rock and semi-classical genre of music are fresh and exciting for listeners. It unleashes a new style of music for many western listeners, as the majority of his music is not written in the English language. He’s also collaborated with huge artists such as Britney Spears.

Nigam has been equally successful as a solo artist – his first album, Deewana, was released in 1999 – and has regularly enthralled audiences all over the world with live concerts and tours. He has also won dozens of awards, both at home (among them a National Award) and abroad (including an MTV Style Award).

About Atif Aslam:

Atif Aslam is one of the most celebrated musicians in India. In 2013, Indian music streaming service Saavn named him the most popular artist of the year.

Aslam formed a band called Jal with composer Goher Mumtaz. Their song “Aadat�, recorded and released in 2004, went viral and made Aslam an overnight sensation. Aslam and Mumtaz parted ways shortly thereafter. Mumtaz continued with Jal, while Aslam embarked on a solo career – one which would prove to be immensely successful. His first solo album, Jal Pari was released shortly thereafter and some songs from the album instantly became as popular across the border as they did at home. Bollywood director Mahesh Bhatt took notice and had Aslam sing a version of one of the most popular tracks, “Woh Lamhe�, for his 2005 movie Zeher. It was a hit, and Aslam secured his place in Bollywood.
