Dhoom Macha Le: Sensational Singer in San Jose and Long Beach

Only 21, and already a successful, established musician, Chauhan is on a journey that has been nothing short of exhilarating. Her love for music was apparent ever since she was a toddler. Her parents noticed her exceptional musical talent and realized that they had a prodigy on their hands. They moved from Delhi to Mumbai where Chauhan performed on stage several times, often singing Lata Mangeshkar’s and Asha Bhonsle’s songs, before being spotted by famous composers Kalyanji and Anandji. Kalyanji had formed the Little Wonders troupe for child artists and Chauhan became an integral part of their performances. She cut her first solo album called Aira Gaira Nathu Khaira when she was merely 8. Her singing career struck gold with the song “ruki ruki si zindagi” from Mast. Since then there has been no looking back. “Aa tayar hoja” in Ashoka, “mehbuba” in Ajnabee, “dhoom machale dhoom” from the blockbuster Dhoom, “say shawa shawa” from Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham, “bhumbhro” in Mission Kashmir—her list of popular songs is growing every day. Who can forget the beautiful song “aa bhi jaa” from the film Sur!

Besides being a sensational singer, Chauhan is also a master performer. On this tour of the United States, Chauhan is also performing in Southern California. “Sunidhi is an excellent dancer and has amazing stage presence. With her dynamic range she’ll perform recent and soon-to-be hits as well as Hindi film classics,” gushes Sangeeta Mohanty, who works for Core Media, her show’s organizers in Long Beach. The singer-performer’s latest releases include songs from films like Fanaa, Don, Gangster, and 36 China Town.

The concert will also feature Indian Idol finalist and pop singer, Rahul Vaidya, with Javed Ali. Vaidya and Ali sang the chartbuster “kajrare” from the film Bunty Aur Babli.

So, if a fun evening of pulsating music and dance is more your style, make sure to not miss this concert.
